BTW. What was the initial no fuel problem with your one, did it just need bleeding?
Cheers

Yes, it just had air in the system.

I'm starting to get more familiar with this ILO engine now.
Even stalled it for the first time today, mind you I was only running it a little over idle (to get a slow travel speed) and was grading the track bed for a 7" gauge railway, so it was pushing a fair amount of clay, no way would the Gravely "L" (Studebaker), engine even think about doing that at idle.
It only seems to burn the lube oil when running at speed on full load, otherwise it drips occasionally from the drains on the muffler.
I also had to top up the fuel tank first time today, so it has mowen my lawn 3 times plus using the rotary plow to dig a surface drain on the side of the railway on about a litre of fuel. The "L" engine would have used a couple of gallons to do that! But they were known for being quite thirsty.
The ILO has used about half a tank of lube oil.
I am very impressed with that.
