My spark issue seems to be cured so now I'm moving on to other questions...

 

Since there is no dipstick, what is the correct oil fill level, for the engine?

  Also, when I was looking over the condition of the belts, I noticed that the drive pulley from the gearbox seemed to be out of line with the transaxle pulley. Looks to me like the side plates on both sides are bent a bit. I don't think it will be an issue, but just wondered if anyone had seen something like this on another tractor. I'm guessing the left rear tire took quite a wallop at some time? I'm kind of camera-less right now, and not sure if it would show up anyway, but I'll try to do some photos some day.

  Wondering too... What type of bolts are used to hold the hood on?

 

Thanks, in advance, BILL

Thanks HANKG. Maybe I can get some, someday. Is that your tractor in the photo? I see it has the proper headlight bracket too.

Bill; on the Briggs singles just bring the oil level up into the threaded part of the oil filler. As long as you can get the cap back in without pushing out oil the level is OK. Add when it gets to the bottom of the threads.If your transaxle pulley is out of line with the  BGB pulley just loosen the set screw in the hub and move pulley into alignment...Dave

Thanks for the help with the oil level, Dave. As for the pulley question, maybe alignment wasn't the correct term to use. The pulleys are actually out of parallel with each other...in other words the axle is not 90 degrees to the drive shaft. Hope that explains it better.               Thanks,   Bill
