It might need a new governor it idles fine and then I went and plowed a small patch it wouldn't get below at 1900 rpms at idle restarted and it back at 1200.

I thinking about selling my 2013 Craftsman LT2000 and buying a deck and the parts to finish the SS15. Also it would be one less thing to move.

I had a little bit of money left over so I bought a roll of gasket material. There was no gasket between the block and the intake manifold also but some fittings and bypass the fuel pump. Soon as I make some more money I need to order the parts from Doc to finish. I forgot to add it show 1300 rpms at full throttle and 995 at low throttle,

Where is a good place to get tire tubes? I had bad luck with the Tractor Supply ones.

Traveller. Had two split in half while putting on the rims they seem to small to fit around rim. I order some in a past that went on without a fight.
