New to me mower

I just bought a 36RH 2007 19hp electric start with only 98 hrs. My question is will a mulch kit for a 52" fit the 36? The person with the mulch kit said the 36 and 52 were the same, you just did not need the single baffel. Is this correct? Also is there a discharge cover that can be used without a mulch kit?

Thank you, Bill

Bill,

While the 36" and 52" share common parts the mulch kit parts are unigue to each size. It might be possible to make it work with some modification for the mounting points and the left side of the 52" part is a little longer than the 36" part so it may need to be cut down.

Best Regards
Wright Mfg.

Wright Mfg had my question right and thank you for the quick response.
I knew on the blades the on difference between most all brands is that the 36 will take two blades and the 52 will take three.

Thank you

I found the block off plate and the mulch kit numbers in the parts booklet I received with this mower. However, the number in my book is different than yours. The block off plate shows to be part number 93460024. I am not new to making mistakes, so I will look again to make sure what number I need before ordering.

This is my first stander and my First Wright mower and I am very impressed so far. I have heard that changing belts can be fun, but overall the mower seems to be built very well and handles great.

Bill,

The 93460024 part was replaced by 93460031, both numbers will get you the same part. The hydro belt can be tricky, most think the clutch has to come off but that is not the case. When putting a new belt on loop the new belt over top the idler arm between the pivot tube and the idler pulley (tight clearence), slip the front section up and around the clutch then wrap the right side hydro pulley and then the left side hydro pulley. Two sets of hands help at the end since the idler will have to be compressed to wrap the last pulley which can be tough by yourself.

Best Regards
Wright Mfg.

I have a question about the mulch kit. I ordered the new number and recieved it but the bolts do not line up. The two center ones work but the far left one is about 1/4 hole off and the far right one [discharge side] is at least 3/4 hole off. Do I just need to drill these or are they suppost to line up? Also, the rear discharge has about a 2" gap between the deck and the mulch plate. The mower is a 36" RH 2007 [i beleive]

Bill I had the same problem with the first kit I ordered for my 08" 36" FD. The bolt you speak of wouldn't line up at all. Wright sent me a new one and it worked. You still have to push that one hole to get it to work but it does work.
