Carb will be here tomorrow. Monday, after a trip to the bank, I'll order tires. Think I can get them for less than $100. Ignition and PTO switches I found for under $25 together.Carb is cheap enough but those tires will cost a bit. Im sure it's gonna make them a good mower once you've gone through it.
I see no way to drain oil and refill, Daniel. This is a Hydro Gear 318-0500. Definitely no filter!Sometimes you can change the oil and get them going. I've also seen inside some that had a sintered bronze filter that was clogged with crud. Gotten a couple going by cleaning insides and changing oil.
