My JD 1130 oil fill cap came loose. Oil blew all over, shut down the engine right away. Where can I get a replacement on a Sunday for Snow Max BS engine. Maybe Northern will have the yellow cap. Its not the dipstick - it is the oil fill cap below on the engine.

Had all the JD fixes done to the 1130 last year but it would still slip. This fall, I sealed up the leaks you mentioned in another post. The 1130 worked perfectly last Saturday.

Thanks Jim

Just change 5 hour break in oil to Mobile one synthetic. I think the BS engine is running smother and quieter now with the new oil! Starts on the first or second pull after hitting the primer a couple of time. I only have to crank the choke one click and the engine fires up.

lanningjw, Let us know how yours works after the new clamp and bulb.

I replaced light and clamp, all works well. About $7.50 for the new light, so it was no big deal. I think one of the screws that hold the starter motor on has also fallen out.....

Also I think I need to tighten up the cable that engages the drive, If that doesnt work I am taking it back to the JD dealer. Seems only 3rd gear really has any power. Reverse is bad and 1 and 2 dont have any power.
