Battery posts, terminals, and related accessories contain lead and
lead compounds, chemicals known to the State of California to cause
cancer and reproductive harm. Wash hands after handling.

To connect the battery cables, proceed as follows:
NOTE: The positive battery terminal is marked Pos. (+). The negative
battery terminal is marked Neg. (–).

Remove the plastic cover, if present, from the positive (+) battery
terminal and attach the red cable to the positive battery terminal
(+) with the bolt and hex nut. See Figure 3.

Remove the plastic cover, if present, from the negative (–) battery
terminal and attach the black cable to the negative battery
terminal (–) with the bolt and hex nut. See Figure 3.

ASSEMBLY
Setting the Deck gauge Wheels
Move the tractor on a firm and level surface, preferably pavement, and
proceed as follows:
1.
Select the height position of the cutting deck by placing the deck
lift lever in the normally desired mowing height setting (any of the
six different cutting height notches on the right fender).
2.
Check the gauge wheels for contact or excessive clearance with
the surface below. The deck gauge wheels should have between
¼" and ½" clearance above the ground.
If the gauge wheels have excessive clearance or contact with the
surface, adjust as follows:
a.
Raise the deck lift handle to its highest setting.
b.
Remove the front and rear gauge wheels by removing the
lock nuts and shoulder screws which secure them to the
deck. See Figure 4.
c.
Place the deck lift lever in the desired mowing height setting.
d.
Reinsert the shoulder screw (with each gauge wheel) into
the index hole that leaves approximately ½" between the
bottom of the wheel and the pavement.
Refer to Leveling the Deck in the Service and Maintenance section
of this manual for more detailed instructions regarding various deck
adjustments.
