AND IT HAPPEND LIKE THIS....















My Dad explaining to my son, Campbell, how in the world the hood blew off of the tractor when the diesel fuel ignited beneath it! OMG..........OOPS!
Yeah, I put diesel fuel in the mower because, well, I do not know the difference between it and regular, simply by smell. Now I know how to siffen gas from a tank, clean then replace a carburetor, check its compression and points, find and remove a spark plug, clean a spark plug then replace it, wash out a gas line, clean a needle valve, and inspect a high-tension lead for cracks or breaks. I've chalked it up to one of life's lessons learned.
