day 2 taking off the pulleys cleaning everything up and getting ready for paint. made a paint booth in the garage with heat, due to the cold weather. we spent a hour straightening the rods that go from the handles to the pulleys. so far nothing needs to be replaced, good for the check book.

You won't.....I had one a while back when I was starting out and wanted to fix it up just a little and parts are near impossible to find, especially paint and decals.

day3 got pulleys and spindles off. took spindles apart and are solid so no need to do anything except grease them. my son is learning alot and and is already figuring things out by himself like all you need is a 1/2'' and 9/16'' to take this mower apart. heck i didn't figure that out until he said something. we decides to change the paint scheme alittle bit. deck lid and wheels are going to be black instead of green deck lid and white tires. Think it will pretty kool being straight black/green. going to pull engine tonight hopefuly
