That might be a good idea.
I have no idea what your trying to do here besides a high performance valve job.

You got it. High performance. Check the fuel pump too maybe rebuild, isolate, or put restrictor. It's the one with the fuel lines and your
pulse.

Taking the blower off is just to let you visually inspect the magnets. This is also the time to make sure the flywheel key isn't sheared. And the timing is set. Its a all or nothing deal. The key is intact and the wheel is timed or not. There's no adjustment.

Well...no.
I did sit down with it though and we had a heart to heart talk. I patted it on the gas tank and asked, What's the matter boy? And it replied, I'm done Dan, I mean look at me, my tires are flat, my deck is rusting away to nothing, I'm leaking oil, I caught on fire...I'm tired you know? So, we both decided that it's best days had come and gone...17 years of service, 7 with me so..yeah.

I really appreciate your help though. This weekend I am going to be purchasing another mower. The question now is...what do I do with this one?

FINAL UPDATE:
A Tiger Cub dealer up the road is going to come out and haul off the now deceased machine.
Last night I bought an Ex mark 60". It is freaking awesome. The only thing about it I am unsure about is the Mulching Kit...how to, when to, use it.
But today...for the first time this year...I mow!
Thanks for all the help.
There are basically two kinds of people...Salt of the Earth...and The Rest. From my experience, professional mowers by and large fall into the first category!
Mow On!
