About laying it on its side?

Lay it one way and you will get oil in the carb.

Lay it the other way and you flood it with the gas from the carburetor bowl.

If it is electric start, laying it either way will leak battery acid, if it has a conventional battery.

Best way = Remove battery, drain carb bowl, then tilt with the carburetor up.

Good luck

As someone else before has indicated, if you don't really identify the beast, it's pretty hard for anyone to help. I'm assuming this is what is generally referred to as a lawn tractor, and not something like the riding mower in the Forrest Gump movie. I've never seen a White tractor, but I think the general layout of all lawn tractors are the same. First question is, why would you want to lay the tractor on its side? It doesn't make much sense to me to even consider doing that. 2nd question...Is this a PTO belt you are talking about or the belt on the deck that spins the blades? Assuming it's the former, there are often two PTO belts side-by-side that are driven by pulleys on the engine crankshaft, and those belts, in turn, drive the power take-off shaft pulleys. And there should also be a couple of idler pulleys that are spring loaded to keep tension in the belts. The other side of the PTO shaft drives the mowing deck. Let me know if I've guessed correctly so far.

There are some great mechanics out there that can help you. All they need to know is everything you know about you machine.

Please look at the third posting on mechanic and repair forum (Sticky: Please Read Before Posting a new Thread). Sticky says it best.

Stuff in Stuff out.

Give good info in and you will get good info out.
