In warmer weather over priming may cause flooding and engine will not start. If you do flood engine wait a few minutes before attempting to start and do not repeat priming steps. MOWING TIPS MULCHING MOWING TIPS • Under certain conditions, such as very tall grass, it may be necessary to raise the height of cut to reduce pushing effort and to keep from overloading the engine and leaving clumps of grass clippings. It may also be necessary to reduce ground speed and/or run the lawn mower over the area a second time. IMPORTANT: For best psrfonnance, keep mower housing free of built-up grass and trash. See "Cleaning" in Maintenance section of this manual. • For extremely heavy cutting, reduce the width of cut by overlapping previously cut path and mow slowly. • For better grass bagging and most cutting conditions, the engine speed should be set in the fast position. • When using a roar 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. • The special mulching blade will recut the grass clippings many times and reduce them in ,_ze so that as they f_ onto the lawn they will disperse into the grass and not be noticed. Also, the mulched grass will biodegrade quickly to provide nutrients for the lawn. Always mulch with your highest engine (blade) speed as this will provide the best recutting action of the blades. • Avoid cutting your lawn when it is wet. Wet grass tends to form dumps and interferes with the mulching action. The best time to mow your lawn is the early afternoon. At this time the grass has dried and the newly cut area WIUnot be exposed to the direct sun. • If a trail of clippings is left on the right side of a rear discharge mower, mow in a clockwise direction with a small overlap to collect the clippings on the next pass. • Pores in cloth grass catchers can become filled with dirt and dust with use • For best results, adjust the lawn mower cutting height so that the lawn mower cuts off only the top one-third of the grass blade_ If the lawn is overgrown it will be necessary to miss the height of cut to reduce pushing effort and to keep from overloading the engine and leaving clumps of mulched grass. For extremely heavy mulching, reduce your width of cut by overlapping previously cut path and mow slowly. • Certain types of grass and grass conditiom may require that an area be mulched a second time to completely hide the and catchers will collect less grass. To prevent this, regularly hose catcher off with water and let dry before using. • Keep top of engine around starter clear and clean of grass clippings and chaff. This will help engine air flow and extend engine life. cr=ppings. Wben doinga secondcut,mow across or perpendicular to the first cut path. • Change your cutting pattern from week to week. Mow nodh to ssuth one week then change to east to west the next week. Thi_ will help prevent matting and graining of th_ lawn. , " 9 _ ' _.

TO REMOVE BLADE • Disconnect spark plug wire from spark plug and place wire _vhere it cannot come in contact with spark plug. • Turn lawn mower on its side. Make sure air filter and carburetor are up. • Use a wood block between blade and mower housing to prevent blade from turning when removing blade bolt. • Protect your hands with gloves and/or wrap blade with heavy cloth. • Remove blade bolt by turning counterclockwise. • Remove blade and attaching hardware (bolt, lock washer and hardened washer). NOTE: Remove the blade adapter and check the key inside hub of blade adapte= The key must be in good condition to wor properly. Replace adapter if damaged. TO REPLACE BLADE • Position the blade adapter on the engi_ crankshaft. Be sure key in adapter anc crankshaft keyway are aligned. • Position blade on the blade adapter aligning the two (2) holes in the blade with the raised lugs on the adapter. • Be sure the trailing edge of blade (opposite sharp edge) is up toward the engine. • Install the blade bolt with the lock washer and hardened washer into blad adapter and crankshaft. • Use block of wood between blade and lawn mower housing and tighten the blade bolt, turning clockwise. • The recommended tightening torque is 35-40 ft. Ibs. IMPORTANT: 11 Blade bolt is grade 8 heal treated. TO SHARPEN BLADE NOTE: We do not recommend sharpening blade - but if you do, be sure the blade is balanced. Care should be taken to keep the blade balanced. An unbalanced blade will cause eventual damage to lawn mower or engine. • The blade can be sharpened with a file or on a grinding wheel. Do not attempt to sharpen while on the mower. • To check blade balance, drive a nail ihto 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, sharpen the heavy end until the blade is balanced. GRASS CATCHER E_ade Crank shaft keyway • To keep your drive system working properly, the gear case and area aroun the drive should be kept clean and free of trash build-up.

Through normal use it will wear. If catcher needs replacing, replace only with a manu|acturor approved replacement catcher. Give the lawn mower model number when ordering. DRIVE WHEELS Check front drive wheel*s each time before you mow to be sure they move freely. The wheels not turning freely means trash, grass cuttings, etc. are in the drive wheel area and must be cleaned to free drive wheels. NOTE: Although multi-viscosity oils (5W30, 10W30 etc.) improve starting in cold weather, these multi-viscosity oils wil result in increased oil consumption when used above 32°F. Check your engine oil level more frequently to avoid possible engine damage from running low on oil. Change the oil after every 25 hours of operation or at least once a year if the lawn mower is not used for 25 hours in one year. Check the crankcase oil level before starting the engine and after each five (5) hours of continuous use. Tighten oil plug securely each time you check the oil level If necessary to clean the drive wheels, check both front wheels. • Remove hubcaps, hairpin cotters and washers. • Remove wheels from wheel adjusters. 12 TOCHANGE ENGINE OIL NOTE: Before tipping lawn mower to drain oil, drain fuel tank by running engine until fuel tank is empty. MUFFLER • Disconnect spark plug wire from spark plug and place wire where it cannot come in contact with spark plug. • Remove engine oil cap; lay aside on a clean surface. • Tip lawn mower on its s'Klea_ _ and drain oil into a suitable container. Rock lawn mower back and forth to remove any oil trapped inside of engine. • Wipe off any spilled oil on lawn mower and on side of engine. • Fill engine with oil. FiUonly to the "FULL" line on the dipstick. DO NOT overfill. • Replace engine oil cap. • Reconnect spark plug wire to spark plug.

CLEANING Container AIR RLTER Your engine will not run propedy and may be damaged by using a dirty air filter. Replace the air filter every year, more often if you mow in very dusty, dirty conditions. Do not wash air filter. TO CHANGE AIR FILTER • Remove the air filter by turning clockwise to the stop and pull away from collar, • Remove filter from inside of cover. • Clean the inside of the cover and the collar to remove any dirt accumulation. • Insert new filter into cover. • Put air filter cover and filter into collar aligning the tab with the slot. • Push in on cover and turn counterclockwise to tighten. Inspect and replace corroded muffler as it could create a fire hazard and/or damage. SPARK PLUG IMPORTANT: For best performance, keep mower housing free of built-up grass and trash. Clean the underside of your mower after each use. ,&CAUTION: Disconnect spark plug wire from spark plug and place wire where it cannot come in contact with the spark plug. •Tum lawn mower on its side. Make sure air filter and carburetor are up. Clean the underside of your lawn mower by scraping to remove build-up of grass and trash. • Clean engine often to keep trash from accumulating. A clogged engine runs hotter and shortens engine life. • Keep finished surfaces and wheels free of all gasoline, oil,etc. • We do not recommend using a garden hose to clGan lawn mower unless the electrical system, muffler, air filter and carburetor are covered to keep water out. Water in engine can result in shortened engine life. CLEAN UNDER DRIVE COVER Clean under drive cover at least twice a season.
