It's sunny and cool out today and a great day for some seat time. I changed out the break in oil in the 23D yesterday and sharpened the blades on the deck. The engine ran great and it mowed like a new machine. I painted and installed a lift bar that I had laying around, and I had a length of galvanized chain that was exactly the same as the original to put on it. The Chevy orange engine paint is a dead ringer for a color match, so I'm happy with that.
I'm looking for the right hand side optional implement lift lever if anyone has one. Thanks.

It's actually a 32" deck, a great excuse for more seat time! It took a little getting use to, but it works well.
