I just inherited an Economy tractor, but can’t really find anything online about it. It’s a pull start but I don’t know what year it is. Serial No. is X8783. It has a Briggs & Stratton model 23CFB type no. 707520 ser. No 7574 motor.
It does run and has a 48” mower deck. I figured out how to adjust the height of the rear of the mower deck by adjusting the height of the rollers but the front still dips down and scalps the lawn. Deck is not level.
My questions are:
-What year is it?
-It calls for “MS” class 20w or 10w oil, can I just put any conventional 10 or 20w-30 oil in it?
-How do you adjust the height of the front of the deck to level it out and not scalp the lawn? The front is at about 2” off the ground and the back is set for just about 4”.
-Where do you find parts for these tractors? Everything I see online seems to be for 1600 or 2400’s.
Thanks so much for all your help.
