Gas fumes will do that to you. Sorry for your woes :( . Been having a few of my own lately.

My SS15 is getting me aggravated. Fixed the leaking carb but still have problems with it bogging down in gear and it stall out on me in the middle of the field.

Might have found some of the issues. The new head bolts are a hair longer too. The old ones are 2-7/16 and the new ones 2-1/2

There is more difference to those bolts than just length. Measure the original from the washer to end. Bet you have close to 1/4" difference there!

I ended up putting the old ones back in with a new headgasket.

Got mule drive belt fix but the blades don't seem to be spinning fast enough to cut grass. I think it because I'm missing the rod that goes between the deck and the mule drive.

Is the deck belt slipping? The rod on mine releases the deck brake. Could your deck brake be engaged?
