Will take carb apart tomorrow and the gas tank is full of crud, just used a spare tank for now too.....seems to run without smoke though, which is the best sign......makes it worth fixing.

Messed with it a bit today....figured the blower out I think......
I am wondering about this idler pulley thing....I guess its for the mower deck, the belt comes off the engine, over this thing and down to the deck.....Seems like a long ways to go....Has anyone got any pics of it in place?

The bracket and pulley you have pictured is the mule drive for the mower deck. It slides into the front of your frame, can really only go one way. When you work the mower engage pedal, you'll see a threaded rod move back and forth in the front of the frame(the threads are to adjust your belt tension). As you are looking at the front of the tractor, the rod attach's to the mule drive on the left hand side. The whole mule drive slides out to add tension to the mower drive belt when you depress the pedal. If you have any trouble, lemme know, I'll try to get some pics.

Thanks for uploading that manual...I already downloaded the 1979, so with this one it should help a lot
