My wife bought me the mower last June, used, for my birthday. Its in great shape and runs excellent. However, the model number on the mower does not match up with what engine is actually on it. I think it should have a 16.5hp Kohler, but it has a 16.5 Briggs, so Im assuming it has been replaced. When I search for the guide with the number on the tractor, I dont get any models with a 16.5hp engine, so when I search for the manual with the 16.5hp engine and model LT1000, I get model number 917.271133. When I get more time, Ill give the engine model number and the number thats on the tractor.
Im still waiting for all my parts to come in, but I started it up and mowed with it yesterday. Runs very well, so Im hoping I dont mess it up when I replace everything, lol.
BTW, im still trying to figure out how to grease all the zerks... I just dont see where to do it, then again, I havent watched any videos yet. I did buy a briggs grease gun kit tho.
