WARNING: Experience indicates that alcohol blended fuels (called gasohol or using ethanol or methanol)
can attract moisture which leads to separation and
formation of acids during storage° Acidic gas can
damage the fuel system of an engine while in storage.
To avoid engine problems, the fuel system shouldbe
emptied before storage for 30 days or tonger_ Drain

o When using a rear discharge
lawn mower in
moist, heavy grass, clumps of cut grass may not
enter the grass catcher. Reduce ground speed
(pushing speed) and/or run the lawn mower over
the area a second time°
If a trail of grass clippings is left on the right side
of a rear discharge
lawn mower,
mow in a
clockwise direction with a small overlap to collect the clippings on the next pass°
For side discharge
lawn mowers,
cutting in a
counter-clockwise
direction, starting at the outside
of the area to be cut, spreads grass clippings more
evenly and puts less load on the engine. To keep
clippings off of walkways, flower beds, etc., make
the first cuts in a clockwise direction°
To start a cold engine, push primer five (5) times
before trying to start. Use a firm push. This step
is not usually necessary when starting an engine
which has already
run for a few minutes.
Hold operator presence control bar down to the
handle and pull starter handle quickly. Do not
allow starter rope to snap back.
o To STOP engine, release operator presence control bar.
NOTE: In cooler weather
it may be necessary to
repeat priming steps. In warmer weather over prim_

you do flood engine wait a few minutes before attempting to start and DO NOT repeat priming steps.

TO REMOVE BLADE:
o Turn lawn mower on its side. Make sure air' filter
and carburetor
are up,
Use block of wood between blade and lawn

when removing
the blade bolt.
o Protect your hands with gloves and!or

CAUTION:A LOOSE

AND_AY MAKETHEiNGINEHARDTOSTART.
Use only a Sears authorized replacement blade to
get the best cutting results.
NOTI::We do not recommend sharpening blade - but
if you do, be sure the blade is balanced.
TO SHARPEN BLADE:
The blade can be sharpened with a file or on a
grinding wheel. Do not attempt to sharpen while
on the lawn mower'.
o Care should be taken to keep the blade balanced. An unbalanced blade will cause excessive
vibration when running and eventual damage to
lawn mower or engine.
o To check blade balance, drive a nail into a beam
or wall. Leave about one inch of the straight nail
exposed. Place center hole of blade over the head
of the nail. If blade is balanced, it should remain
in a horizontal position. If either end of the blade
moves downward,
blade is not balanced.
Sharpen the heavy end until the blade is
balanced.
TO REPLACE BLADE:
NOTE:When replacing the blade adapter, be sure
the spacer is in place inside the hub of the blade
adapter, otherwise the blade will be out of location
and affect the cutting height (See Fig. 11).
o Position the blade adapter on the engine
crankshaft° Be sure key in adapter and key way
in crankshaft are aligned.
o Position blade on to the blade adapter aligning
the two (2) holes in the blade with the raised lugs
on the adapter.
NOTE:Be sure the word TOP (stamped on the blade)
is toward the engine (See Fig. 11).
