I just purchased an older 18" Ryan sodcutter. It starts right up but when blades or drivetrain are engaged there is a loud grinding sound in the large pulley on the left side of the machine. It still operates but obviously there is a problem. What would cause that? Do I need to replace the pulley? Where can I find cheap parts for this machine. I also need a throttle cable and flywheel cover. Thanks for any info.
