    Sorry Ken.... You are asking an 83 year old to remember specifics from 3+ years ago.....? I wish I COULD tell you,........ but even 3 weeks ago is sometimes difficult. ;)

    With all due respect, unless something has changed in the last 3+ years. Ruger sent me a pre-paid shipping label, and I dropped off. Several weeks later, my Ruger was returned. No FFL, or anything else was required.

    In need of a BT1000 Backhoe shows the BT 1000 as OEM for BOTH the L39 and the L45. ( I have the L48, which has the BT 1100) It is possible that there may be some very subtle (hose) connection differences.

    WTB Front Loader for L3010

    You will also likely hear this from others..... It will be very difficult to find a used loader for any 20+ year old Kubota tractor. Tractors, and their respective loaders are rarely separated. If you hope to have a loader in next year or two....... Your best option may be to sell your L3010...

    If the dealer will not give you $200,..... I will! You could put in a USPS Priority mail box (I'll pay) and send it to me. If the postal clerk asks about contents, the answer is:......."PARTS"

    Reservations about an 8 y/o L3901 HST

    4+ years ago I bought a 2006 Kubota L48 TLB, then a 13 year old machine. Had 251 total hours. I bought from original owner, 350 miles away ( I lack affection for "stealers" ) Had a friend who lived local to the seller, look at the tractor for me. Mailed the seller a $6K deposit check.

    Advice and experience with zero turn mowers

    I have a 1972- 15 HP single cy.l Briggs, OEM, on a 1972 Craftsman lawn tractor. Entire machine is in near perfect condition (now 52 years old). I do not use the lawn tractor anymore, and it runs fine, but I would like to find a new set of ignition points for the 15 HP Briggs. Any ideas?

    Kubota Tool-N-Go

    The plugs that I referred to are NOT "PIPE PLUGS". The "Oatey" (brand) plugs that I refrenced are plumber pressure test plugs. A very different animal from a "pipe plug"!
