    My exmark 52inch Hd Wb is in need of a upper and lower wheel seals which I have and plan on replacing this winter. Plus plugs filters and fluids. Is their anything else I should do why I have it in pieces this winter. It is 5 years old and really have had no problems with it. Needs a new muffler also.

    Might as well go for new belts too. nothing sucks worst than losing one at the start of the season. (except for a bunch of flat tires)

    Put new bearings in the spindles
  7. new belts on everything we own every winter! carbs wear out on most of the 2 cycle stuff, espeially the blowers so we take them off dunk 'em and new gaskets. hadn't thought about pull cords, hole in one, but thats a good idea and we might start doing that.
