SERVICE AND ADJUSTMENT
HOW TO LEVEL THE MOWER
HOUSING
If the mower housing is level, the blade will cut easier and the lawn
will look better.
WARNING:
Before you make an inspection,
adjust-
ment, or repair to the unit, disconnect the wire to the
spark plug. Remove the spark plug wire to prevent
the engine from starting by accident.
1.
Make sure the unit is on a hard flat surface.
2,
Check the air pressure in the tires. If the air pressure is incor-
rect, the mower housing will not cut level. Make sure the tires
are inflated to: Front Tires 22 PSi (1.5 BAR), Rear Tires 14 PSL
(1 BAR).
3.
Open the cover (see Figure 24).
4.
Move the lift lever to the LEVEL ADJUSTMENT
position (see
Figure 24).
5,
Loosen the front and rear adjuster knobs (see Figure 24 and
Figure 25). Make sure both sides of the mower housing are set-
ting on a flat surface. Also, make sure the lift links and adjuster
plates are loose and can easily move up or down.
