Thanks Snapperman., I will keep plugging away at it. there great machines, just touchy on adjustment I guess. got a ton of power just don't want to transfer it. and of course the rider I have is a front mounted engine, and the drive belt, drives the plate. thanks again. there has got to be a book covering it, but I have no idea of age or model. I can't find a number no where. A the whole front sheet metal unit was gone and I rebuilt one off of another brand mower, and painted. Sharp when done.
had enough of the rat race. just want to listen to sound of a well running old motor. hit and miss preferably
