Sold the mower I had and ordered new front tires , rear tire tubes , voltage regulator and choke cable. 

I still need new battery , oil for the transaxle and the engine , wire , battery cables , drive belt  and oil pan gasket.

I got one front tire off after fighting with it awhile but now I got another one that just won't budge even when we used the wheelift on the tow truck.

Just found this thread. Always wanted an SS15. Excited to see the final product. If you have trouble with tires, try a mini tire changer from harbor freight. Works good on small front tires like this, but don't try anything bigger.

Got one but they don't work good with tires that are stuck on from rust or fix a flat.

No they don't. I have one of the larger tire changers too and that has a bead breaker on it that helps a lot for things like that.

I'm working on getting the seized drain plug out of the transaxle. I fixed the S/G with a bolt and a cable in probably not a permanent fixed but as long as it get be thru the start of the growing season. Other then the drain plug and tires I got it put back together.

I flushed the transaxle with diesel and still couldn't get it all cleaned out so I added fresh oil and going to change it out after a hour or so of use. I will post the video later of the crud that came out of it.
