Serviced Eeyore

Post by Chuck W. » Tue Feb 26, 2019 2:13 pm

Sunshine after 5-6 days of record rainfall, temps up in the mid 60's, time to do a project I have been meaning to do all winter. Rolled Eeyore out (he's on dollies) where I could get to the gas tank. Drained all the old fuel out. Didn't look or smell too bad, but I know it's been in there for a while. Added 5 gallons of non-ethanol gas, changed the rear fuel filter, pulled and cleaned the plugs. He cranked up and ran just fine. I let the engine run for probably 10 minutes. I'm happy!

Also cranked the M38 and let it run for a few minutes to get it up to operating temp.

I have been keeping battery minders on the batteries in the mule and both jeeps for a few years now and am very happy with the way the batteries are holding their charge. I've got four of these from Northern Tool, one on the mule, one on the CJ3B and two on the M38. They stay on 24/7 whenever the vehicles are not in use.

Good on ya Chuck. My mule amazes me, he spends the long Canadian winter out in the shed. Doesn't ask for much. I've got a solar powered battery tender on the battery. Pull the choke and he never fails to fire right up. Needs a clutch now badly after some hard work last fall. These truly are amazing machines!
