    Our mower was new three years ago and the self propelled front wheels already stopped working.

    Re: I Can't Kill It!

    tryin to ID this mower issue, nobetter place than this thread.

    Toro mower with about 10 years old minimal maintenance
    but.. i did replace the carb with an amazon carb this year. Old one wasnt worth cleaning. repairing etc. Also threw on a new spindle and blade, New fuel hose, made sure I put all the arms in correct position on the carb , new gaskets, new air filter

    Now the dam mower sounds like a jet engine, engine seems to be running faster and the self propel feature , which I never used went from a leisurely stroll to good fast pace that is too much occasionally


    Something is up and I'm not sure what. I tried adjusting the carb and well... no major impact.

    only thing I can think of put a gasket between the muffler and the case( lost that a long time ago ) and new muffler maybe( help with nouise but not with the "increased power"?)

    Any ideas?

    No can do. Read through the thread again. I've GOTTA let it die a natural death. I owe it to the old dog.

    That said, even with the newer drive belt, the self-propelled wheels are only occasionally self-propelling. A glimpse of what's to come perhaps? Meh, doubt it...

    Re: I Can't Kill It!

    back in the day, I worked for a garage mostly finding and towing salvage. I recall and old mopar with a slant 6, with well over 300k that we tried blowing the motor, we ran it without water till it got so hot, it seized. but after it cooled, it started right back up. So, we ran it without water or oil, till it seized. Yep, after it cooled , it started ri8ght back up, a few days later, a customer came looking for a slant 6, we told him what we did to it, but it still ran good, we sold it to him for scrap price, and it was used on the road for at least another year

    maybe, who knows ?

    I owned a '62 Dart Gt Convertible one summer, slant 6 typewriter auto, had a zillion miles, as an "in between" car, it was a turd, drivers seat needed 3 pillows to fill the hole in it, top was duct taped, wasn't particularly fast, but it got me where I needed to go for a couple weeks while waiting for my bid to be accepted on another vehicle.
