I just picked up a Hydro 175 from craigslist for $50 that wasn't running and had been sitting for years.
I spent a few hours cleaning her up - installed the wiring harness and relay kit Am107421, replaced the battery and cleaned the carb out, changed oil and filter, air filter and ignition switch.
Fired her up today and she runs great - mowed the lawn today after some minor repairs to the deck.
I have a few questions though, hopefully someone here could share some knowledge.
Are both rear wheels drive wheels or will it transfer power to the tire with the least traction.
Also will LA175 steering components fit into a hydro 175?
does anyone know the valve lash specs?
Does anyone know what this bracket is for in the picture below
