NOTE: TIRE CHAINS CANNOT BE USED WlTH THE MOWER ATTACHED.
Mower should be adjusted properly front to back and side t o side for good mowing performance. Refer to REPAIR AND ADJUSTMENT section (page 22). Use the runner on the R.H. side as a guide; the blade cuts approximately an inch outside the runner (Fig. 8). Drive so that clippings are discharged onto the area that has been cut. Have the cut area to the right of the machine. This will result in a more even distribution of clippings and more uniform cutting. When mowing large areas (Fig. 9), start by furning to the right so that the clippins will discharge away from shrubs, fences, driveways, etc. After two or three rounds, mow in the opposite direction making left hand turns until finished.

CAUTION: BEFORE YOU MOVE THE GEAR SHIFT LEVER, COME TO A COMPLETE STOP. FAILURE TO DO SO CAN RESULT IN GEAR BOX DAMAGE.

d
FIGURE

If grass is extremely tall, it should be mowed twice. The first time cut relatively high; the second time to the desired height. The left hand side of mower should be used for trimming. See Speed Selection Chart. Do not mow tall, dry (brown) grass over 6 inches tall. It is a fire hazard.

3. Blade Care
A GRADE 5 HEAT TREATED BOLT CAN BE IDENTIFIED BY THREE LINES ON THE BOLT HEAD AS SHOWN AT LEFT.
For best results mower blades muast be kept sharp. The blades can be sharpened with a few strokes of a file, or on a grinding wheel. We suggest they be sharpened after every 25 hours of mowing. Do not attempt to sharpen while on mower. If you mow in sandy soil check the blades after each two mowings. The sand wears the blade away rapidly. a . Blade Replacement Raise mower to highest position to permit access to blades. 7 . Remove the hex head bolt, lockwasher and flat washer (Fig. 7 7 ) (turn counterclockwise) (-). 2 . Remove and discard old blade. 3 . Clean top and bottom of mower housing. 4 . Install new blade with SHARP EDGE DOWN and secure with flat washer, lockwasher and hex head bolt. TIGHTEN SECURELY.

REPAIR AND ADJUSTMENT
b . When grinding, care should be taken to maintain blade balance and the blade should be checked for proper balance before reinstallation on mower. An unbalanced or bent blade will cause excessive vibration when running, and eventual damage to mower or engine. Replace bent or damaged blades. c . To check blade balance, drive a nail into a beam or wall. Leave about one inch of the straight nail exposed. Place center hole of clean blade over the head of the nail (Fig. 131. NOTE: CENTER

HOLE OF BLADE ON NAIL, IF BLADE IS PROPERLY BALANCED, BLADE SHOULD REMAIN IN POSITION SHOWN IN FIG. 13. IF EITHER END OF THE BLADE MOVES DOWNWARD, BLADE IS NOT BALANCED. SHARPEN THE HEAVY END UNTIL BLADE IS BALANCED.

When mower is to be stored for a period of time, clean it thoroughly, remove all dirt, grease, leaves, etc. give blades and underside of housing a good coat of grease or rust preventative. Store in a clean dry area. A . Fuel System It is important to prevent gum deposits from forming in essential fuel system parts such as the carburetor, fuel filter, fuel hose, or tank during storage. Also, experience indicates that alcohol blended fuels (called gasohol or using ethanol or methanol) can attract moisture which leads to separation and formation 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 storage of 30 days or longer. B . Engine Oil Drain (with engine warm) and replace with clean engine oil, (See chart page 76).

BRIGGS 81STRATTON ENGINE WARRANTY POLICY

To avoid misunderstandings which might occur between engine owners and authorized Briggs & Stratton service accounts, we are listing some o f the causes of engine failure, where repair or replacement is NOT covered by Briggs & Stratton warranty.

NORMAL WEAR
Warranty will not cover repair where normal use has exhausted the life of a part or engine. Engines, like all parts replacement and service to perform well. It should be remembered that mechanical devices, need p e r ~ o d ~ c the service life o f any englne is dependent on the care it receives and the conditions under which i t has to ooerate. Some applications, such a t~llers, s trash pumps, rotary mowers, are very often used in dusty or dirty conditions, which can cause what appears t o be premature wear. Such wear, when caused by dirt, dust, spark plug cleaning grit or other abrasive material, which has entered the engine because of improper maintenance, is not covered by Warranty.

ABUSE OR NEGLECT
1. Bent or broken crankshafts: Such damage is normally the result of abuse, such as striking a solid object with the cutter blade on a rotary lawn mower, and is not covered by Warranty.

2. Engine repairs required from the use of contaminated or stale fuel are not covered by Warranty. Such failures
would include sticking valves, and carburetors and fuel pipes which are clogged by gum deposits which form' through the use o f stale fuel. Always use clean fresh regular gasoline.

3. Parts which are scored or broken because an engine was operated without sufficient lubricating oil, the
proper grade o f lubricating oil or contaminated lubricating oil are not covered by Warranty. Check oil level at least every five hours and refill when necessary. Change oil at recommended intervals.

4. Damage caused by overheating or overspeeding i s not covered by Warranty. Overspeeding or overheating occurs i f the cooling fins become plugged with dirt, grass or debris, or if an engine is operated in a confined area without sufficient ventilation. Clean fins on the cylinder, cylinder head and flywheel regularly. 5. Damage or wear caused by dirt which enters the engine because of improper air cleaner maintenance is not covered by Warranty. Clean and re-oil the air cleaner regularly.
6. Damage or wear caused by grit from blast cleaning spark plugs is not covered by Warranty. We do not approve of cleaning spark plugs on an abrasive blast cleaning machine, since grit can remain in the plug, and later enter the engine. 7. Warranty does not cover the tune up or adjustment of an engine unless the need for such repair is the result of defects i n material or workmanship or both. If equlpment is assembled and adjusted by the owner, the engine Operating and Maintenance lnstructlons are sufficiently clear t o permit the average owner to make minor adjustments. Such mlnor adjustments are NOT covered by Warranty.

8. Broken parts, w h ~ c hresult from

excessive v ~ b r a t ~ o n caused by loose englne mounting, loose cutter blades, equlpment to englne crankshaft, overspeedtng or abuse in operation, blade unbalance, ~mproperlyattach~ng are not covered by Warranty

9. Repair or adjustment of assoc~ated parts or assembl~es such as clutches, transmissions, remote controls, etc., which are not of Br~ggs Stratton manufacture w ~ lnot be covered by Briggs & Stratton Warranty. & l
10. Only ORIGINAL Br~ggs Stratton parts, or parts approved by Briggs & Stratton may be covered by Warranty. &
WARRANTY IS AVAILABLE ONLY THROUGH SERVICE CENTERS WHICH HAVE BEEN AUTHORIZED BY THE BRIGGS & STRATTON CORPORATION. YOUR NEAREST SERVICE CENTER IS LISTED I N THE YELLOW PAGESOF YOUR TELEPHONE DIRECTORY, UNDER "ENGINES, GASOLINE" OR "GASOLINE ENGINES."
