I had to switch to my blade today because one of the auger bearings on the blower is loose and I can’t tighten it. I’m not sure if the end plate on the auger tube is threaded or if it has weld nuts on the inside. Either way it feels stripped out. The parts manual doesn’t call out a nut so I don’t think there’s a loose nut inside but that’s what it feels like. I don’t want to mess with it right now.

Another fun thing that was happening was the engine dropping off and almost dying...but only when I turned left ??
I finally figured out the choke cable had miraculously started to get yanked when turning LEFT and pulling the choke arm on the carb. Not sure how this is happening all the sudden but I guess I’m going to have to reroute the cable or install a longer one. It does get old just trying to work in RIGHT turns. I felt like UPS.

Big daddy cousin of the GK.

Up for auction.  Not necessarily a garden tractor but we can stretch the rules right.
