Got the Deere service manual today!  Well worth the $20-some I have in it.  Looks like a 3 HP Briggs too on the 18" deck.  They list two different versions of the 18 but I am not sure which one this is.  Working on a space in the basement to work on the project.  :D

Made some time to start the teardown.  Things are coming apart pretty well but the blade bolt will need some serious PBBlaster application before it comes loose.  Deck looks to be very solid and it is complete and pretty much original.

With a break in the week and great temps outside I have made some more progress on the lowly 18" trim mower and will post pics a bit later.  Today's progress includes:

  • drained oil (was black but no suspicious contents like metal shavings or other unknown chunks)
  • removed blade (still has a decent edge on it)
  • removed the engine from the deck (bolts came out easily)
  • removed the wheel mount/adjuster assemblys (will replace all 4 since JDParts says they are still available)

At this point I have a bare deck that will need cleaned, stripped, and straightened for primer and paint.
