    So I aquired a Craftsman Stage 2 Snow Blower with a 7.5 Briggs motor. I got it for free and it had been sitting for quite some time so I did a quick clean out of it before trying to fire it up. I drained the gas tank and completely cleaned that out, I changed the oil, I took off the carb and...

    I have a Craftsman T1000 (203700) 42" riding mower. I've changed the blades on it a couple times (due to my hitting roots, etc). None of the Craftsman videos out there ever mention installing the blades at 90º angles to eachother. The manual for my specific model doesn't mention anything...
