Hi All...I am brand new to this forum and I am happy I found you guys. There is some really great info here and I thank you, in advance, for any help you might be able to provide.
The subject mower is about 9 years old and I am the second owner. I noticed several weeks ago that the pull cord ran into some considerable resistance after being pulled less than 12 inches. After letting the cord rewind, it would start normally on the second pull.
I also noticed that the cord, about half way down, was tearing and not holding on by much. I replaced the recoil assembly hoping to not only fix the cord problem, but also the resistance problem.
The repair went well, but the resistance problem is the same...first pull much resistance...second pull just fine.
I found the owners manual here on this site, but the only lubrication mentioned other than the oil and gear oil is in regard to the wheels.
I was wondering if there is some lubrication needed here and if so, what and with what?
Thanks again for your help
