4. When cutting in heavy or moist grass, the rear of the
lawn mower may be raised one setting higher (by
lowering the wheels one setting) to allow better
discharge of the grass.
This will also make the unit push or propel easier
because it will reduce the drag of the rear of the
mower on the grass. This will not harm the cutting

2. The drive belt is sprlng.loaded at the gear case to
maintain proper belt tension. Keep the area around
the gear case clear of trash by removing drive cover
and deanlng (See Fig. 16 and 17).
3. The gear case is lubricated
with multi.purpose
automotive grease. DO NOT USE ANY OTHER type
grease or oil in the gear case. See "GEAR CASE'"
under "Maintenance".
4. Check your mower, each time you mow, to be sure
that the front wheels turn freely. If wheels DO NOT
turn freely, remove any trash which may have gotten
into the wheel, pinion, or bearing areas.
5. If at any time, the drive belt is replaced, use only factory specified belt to get longer life and maximum
performance.

2, For extremely heavy cutting, make the width of your
cut 1/2 to 3/4 the normo/ cut, This will reduce the load
on the engine and give you cleaner cutting and
bagging.
3. The user should note that when cutting moist, heavy
grass with a rear bagging mower, dumps of cut grass
may fail to enter the grass catcher. To pick up the
dumps if they occur, run the mower over the area a
second time.
4. Under certain conditions a trail of grass dippings may
be left at the right side of the mower. Mowing in a
clockwise direction with a small overlap will allow
these clippings to be collected on next pass.
FIG.

MAINTENANCE
APPROX
Be good to your mower. Once a year put in a new spark
plug, a new air filter and check blade for wear. A new
blade cuts better. With a new spark plug your engine will
start and run better. A clean air filter assures proper airfuel mixture, tt will help your engine run better and last
longer.

CA UTION: Protect your hands when removing or installing blade of your mower, Wear heavy gloves
and/or wrap blade with heavy cloth when holding
blade. Always use a block of wood when tightening
blade nut or blade bolt.
FIG, 21
8. Tighten blade nut. The recommended tightening tor_
qbue is 70-75 ft. Ibs. Use block of wood to prevent
lade rotation.
NOTE: Torque wrenches are available at most Sears
retail stores and through the catalog.
A loose blade can result in difficult starting of engine.
We DO NOT recommend sharpening blade - you can
keep the cutting edge touched up with a file. Grinding the
cutting edge excessively can cause the blade to be out
of balance. An unbalanced blade can cause excessive
vibration and shorten the fife of the engine and mower.
Use only a Sears authorized replacement blade to get
the best cutting results,
CAUTION: Disconnect spark plug wire from spark plug
and place wire where it cannot come in contact with the
spark plug.
1. To remove the blade and blade flange, turn mower
on its side with carburetor and air filter up (See Fig.
18).
2.
Take blade nut off by turning counter-clockwise. Use
a 15/16" box or open end wrench on the blade nut

4, if the tab in the blade flange is damaged replace the
blade flange.
NOTE: The blade flange with tab attaches the blade to
crankshaft. It is not intended to protect the crankshaft. The
tab must be in good condition and located in slot af
crankshaft to keep blade attached.
5. Put the blade flange on the engine crankshaft with the
tab in the slot of-the.cr_ankshaft (See Fig. 19).

STOOGE
Never store engine with gasoline in tank, indoors or in
closed, poorly ventilated areas where gasoline fumesmay
reach an open flame, spark or pilot light as on a furnace,
water heater, or clothes dryer, etc.
It is important to prevent gum deposits from forming in
essential fuel system parts such as the carburetor, fuel
filter, fuel hose, or tank during storage. Also, 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 should be emptied before storage of 30 days or longer. Follow these
instructions:
if your engine is not to be used for 30 days or more
prepare as follows:
Drain gasoline From fuel tank; gasoline in gasoline tank
and carburetor will farm deposits and cause problems in
starting and running your engine.
When preparing your mowerfor storage it is a good time
to serviceyour mower and engine to be ready for the next
mowing season. Replace such parts as mower blade,
spark plug and air filter,
CHANGE OIL: Warm oil drains better,
Drain old oil and replace with fresh clean Sears SAE 30W
oil.
See "To Change Oil" section under Maintenance.
Remove spark plug and put 2 or 3 tablespoons atoll into
s_isark plug opening and pull starter rope slowly to
tribute oil, instaJlnew spark plug and tighten.
DO NOT PUT ANY ADDITIVES IN GASOLINE OR OIL.
CLEANMOWE_ENblNE
CAUTION: Before cleaning mower, disconnect spark
plug wire and place wire where it cannot come in contact
with the spark plug.
Clean around engine and on top of mower. Scrape underside of mower using putty knife or similar toot to remove
any build.up of trash or grass on underside of mower
housing.
NOTE: We DO NOT recommend using a water hose to
clean your mower unlessthe electrical system, muffler, air
filter and carburetor are covered to keep water out.
Water in engine can result in shortening engine life.
CHECKFASTENERS
Check all fasteners and be sure they ore tight: tighten
and/or replace any loose or worn fasteners.
GRASSTCHER
Check your grass catcher often for damage or deterioration. Through normal use it will wear. If catcher needs
replacing, replace only with a manufacturer approved
replacement catcher from Sears. Give the mower model
when ordering.
NOTE: The catcher may be hosed with water, but must
be dry when used.
FIG. 29
REPLACE
BLADE
See "Blade Care" section under Maintenance. To get the
bestcutting results we recommend that you inspect mower
blade for sharpness, wear and damage each year. If
necessary, replace with a Sears original equipment blade.
Replacement blade is available at most Sears stares and
through the catalog. Be sure to give your mower model
number when ordering blade.
We DO NOT recommend sharpening blade - you can
keep the cutting edge touched up with a file. Grinding the
cutting edge excessively can cause the blade to be out
of balance. An unbalanced blade can cause excessive
vibration and shorten the life of the engine and mower.
GENERAL
Always store your mower on its wheels. 5taring mower
on its side or end may result in difficult starting.
When removing your mower from storage, fill gasoline
tank with fresh, clean, unleaded, automotive gasoline.
Check and fill oil to proper level.
When starting your engine the first time after being in
storage for extended period, the engine may smoke for
a while until the engine burns any oi! or gasoline accumulated during the storage period.
DO NOT store gasoline from one season to another. Use
up or dispose of any unused gasoline left from the mowing season.
Replace your gasoline con if your can starts to rust. DO
NOT use rusty gasoline can. Rust and/or dirt in your
gasoline can cause problems.
DO NOT store your mower under any plastic coverj
plastic cannot breathe which promotes condensation and
can cause your mower to rust.
HANDLE
You can fold your mower handle far storage (See Fig.
29).
When setting.up your handle from storage position the
lower handle will automatically lock into mowing position.
