CAUTION: Alcohol blended fuels (called gasohol or using ethanol or methanol) can attract moisture which
leads to sep a ra tion and for ma tion of acids during storage. Acidic gas can damage the fuel system of an
engine while in storage. To avoid engine problems, the fuel system should be emptied before stor age of
30 days or longer. Drain the gas tank, start the engine and let it run until the fuel lines and carburetor are
empty. Use fresh fuel next season. See Storage In struc tions for additional information. Never use engine
or carburetor cleaner products in the fuel tank or permanent damage may occur.
TO START ENGINE (See Fig. 3)
When starting the engine for the first time or if the engine
has run out of fuel, it will take extra cranking time to move
fuel from the tank to the engine.
Be sure freewheel control is in the transmission en-
gaged position.
Sit on seat in operating position, depress brake pedal
and set parking brake.
Move attachment clutch to "DISENGAGED" position.
Move throttle control to choke position.
NOTE: Before starting, read the warm and cold starting
procedures below.
Insert key into ignition and turn key clockwise to "START"
position and release key as soon as engine starts.
Do not run starter continuously for more than fifteen
sec onds per minute. If the engine does not start after
several attempts, move throttle control to fast position,
wait a few minutes and try again. If engine still does
not start, move the throttle control back to the choke
position and retry.
WARM WEATHER STARTING (50° F and above)
When engine starts, move the throttle control to the
fast position.
The attachments and ground drive can now be used. If
the engine does not accept the load, restart the engine
and allow it to warm up for one minute using the choke
as described above.
COLD WEATHER STARTING ( 50° F and below)
When engine starts, allow engine to run with the
throttle control in the choke position until the engine
runs roughly, then move throttle control to fast posi-
tion. This may require an engine warm-up period from
several seconds to several minutes, depending on the
tem per a ture.
AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION WARM UP
Before driving the unit in cold weather, the trans mis sion
should be warmed up as follows:
Be sure the tractor is on level ground.
Release the parking brake and let the brake slowly
return to operating position.
Allow one minute for transmission to warm up. This
can be done during the engine warm up period.
The attachments can also be used during the engine
warm-up period after the transmission has been
warmed up.
NOTE: If at a high altitude (above 3000 feet) or in cold
temperatures (below 32 F) the carburetor fuel mixture may
need to be adjusted for best engine performance. See "TO
ADJUST CARBURETOR" in the Service and Adjustments
section of this manual.
