Hoping this won't be a long thread as before. Red is a 917.254450 1990 Craftsman LGT.
Year before last, rebuilt the 18.5 Briggs opposed, and replaced the oil slinger. Replaced Steering bushings, added LED assisted lights, and sharpened the blades.
Last year I added brass bushings to the steering, sharpened the blades, and filled the transaxle with 00 grease
This year I plan on.
1. filling the transaxle with 00 grease.
2. Replacing / adjusting the brake shoes.
3 Remove the deck and test the mandrills / pulleys / and belt
4. Check the drive belt
5. Paint under the deck
6. Replace the battery
Should be good to go for 2 more years.
