Just a thread I thought to start up to hear what others have done. To start it off I brushed off some grass clippings off the mower deck. :hi:
Welcome N2!I worked on my LT 133 I purchased over the week end for $50.00. Put air in tires to 30 psi. All the wheels/tires had like water in them or something like that. IDKW. Does any one know of this or is a common problem or trick I have not heard of yet?
I Installed a $35.00 Battery and pressure cleaned the carburetor area & linkages and Brake Assemblie at the Transaxle and at the Parking Brake. Lubed the parking brake rod and sliding/rotating lock to clutch brake pedal. Adjusted the Brake pad setting Nut at the transaxle so it would stop again because it would not stopo when I got it. Adjusted the Idle, Choke and all remainging Throttle Linkages. Got it to run at a lot higher RPM's and removed the caked and dust filled Air Filter which now needs to be replaced with another one soon and need to replace the oil and filter as well.
Still have lots to do but at least I got it running Safely for now. Still need to find a hood and few pulleys for the mower deck.
Does any one know if the LT 133 has a PTO Option for tillers and the likes?
I would go look for a 318, 322, 330, or 332 or a 420 or a 430. Be prepare for sticker shock on the tiller attachments.Thank you for the warm welcome and info on Balasts.
I guess I'll start looking for a deal on a Garden Tractor now. Good Article on the diff types of mowers and tractors. :good2:
Now to go let some air out of the tires if they have not exploded already.
Does any one here have any good suggestions for a JD Garden Tractor with a 3 point hitch optionthat that can handle a decent tiller attachment and run the tiller from the tractor and not from a tiller w/it's own motor?
Preferably a used model that is slightly aged but still looks modern. I'll start looking the CL adds and get to cracking on getting this lawn tractor a new home after I get it in tip top shape.
