    ok I purchased the Mini Z 19hp Kawi 42" deck. Bothe the online spec sheet and the hard copy spec sheet say 10w40 motor oil in the drive pumps but the owners manual says 20w50SL service motor oil. Which one do I use? What is in it from the factory? I dont want mix them or use the wrong oil and screw up the warranty.


    THANKS

    Your owners manual is correct, disregard what the online spec sheet says, it is incorrect.
    It has 20w50 in it from the factory.
    I will bring it to our advertising departments attention.
    Thank you.

    THANKS for the clarification. Also what about a tutorial on adjusting the tracking. I looked in the owners manual but didnt see anything in regards to tracking adjustments. My Z is trackimg slightly to the left.

    First thing, I would wait about 10 hours before making adjustments, due to break in time.
    Secondly, I will get the procedure for you, e-mail me and I will send it to you when I get it.
