I know exactly what you mean there. It took me a couple hours to change the drive belt on mine. It came apart fairly easily. Getting it all back together right was the fun part. But they are cool little mowers!

Picked up my parts order today (dealer is 25 miles away), belts, couple of decals, some paint.  I'd ordered new plastic hub caps for the front (the 2" ones), they sent smaller black ones (I may have ordered wrong, don't admit to nuthin')!  Had one minor problem & had to pull the engine this morning, oil seaping around one of the recessed bolts in the bottom of the pan.  Put sealer on the bolts & tightened them, see if it's leaking in the morning.

 

From the sound of the forecast, I'll want to stay in the shop tomorrow (cold), should get the biggest part of it done!  I'll try to remember to take some more pics.  ~~  Lowell
