Nice job! A good carb cleaning I'll bet it'll be good to go. :ThumbUp:Got two other push mowers running for the year today: my Craftsman that I have had since new, and the "other" Snapper that I got as a freebie.
Changed the wheels on the Craftsman since the original ones were quite cracked - surprised they hadn't fallen off yet. Lubed the friction points and changed the air filter. Still need to change the oil but that is a quick fix.
The "other" Snapper needs a bit of work in addition to a normal tuneup. The mount for the rear axle on the right side is broken, so the right rear wheel sits too low. So, need to replace that. Other than that, it is very hard to start. I can pull and it just barely puffs a couple times, and if I catch it and pull fast enough, it might start. Starts a little easier with starting fluid, but I am pretty sure I need to go after the carb and clean/replace it. It has a B&S engine on it, but I need to look up and read more info. Definitely needs an oil change at some point, too. Did lube up everything like I did on the other mowers, at least. I like this "other" Snapper because it has multiple speeds for the self-propel...I think I'd rather keep it than the single-speed Snapper I used yesterday.
lol!I and another neighbor that helped take care of things wanted to cut it down or at least trim the branches up higher on it but she did not want us to do it. One day we got stabbed one too many time and lopped off some of the lower branches anyway.
Great news! Now you can successfully mulch with it. :tango_face_smile: Thanks for the update!Ordered the chute plug (Snapper part #7016814YP) for the '90 Snapper mower on Sunday night. Just got the part today and it fits like a glove!
Now I can leave the chute on when mulching and can use the bag if/when I want to.
