Sad Day :(
« on: August 23, 2013, 09:07:16 PM »
Well,  the Bobcat is going into indoor storage.  The Army decided to send me away for about a year. Besides an oil change, fuel stabilizer, new plugs with anti-seize, jack stands, and good wash; what else should I do??

Personally I would drain the carb and blow dry it and lube any rubber with a bit of Marvel to keep everything soft..

Best of luck and be safe, and thank you for your service..

And maybe put Sta-Bil in the tank or drain it.  Be safe out there!  :)
