I mess with tractor now and then to tear-down. Man, what a mess of linkages and tight areas AND most bolts have NUTS on them you can't reach w/out pulling other items off and etc. Those deck hanger/lifts have got to be a wonder and I "wonder" how the designer came up with all those bent and curved pieces and links and got it to work! I finally got the engine unbolted and up on bench. Have covers and flywheel off to check for spark which it doesn't have. Have manuals coming for that. Briggs seem much diff than K engines and will be new to me. I need to get the steering wheel off (fun) and then can get dash off and see much more. Darn thing is frayed fiberglas and I get itchier everytime I work around it. Not sure what to do with that. Finding one hard or just try glassing with resin over what's there? Not looking forward to that. I'll post as I go along, won't be quick tho.
