  1. thanks! this helped re-assure me, i was confused about the twisting of the shut off valve plus the tube was loose, i went ahead and tightened the tubes large nut. A little hello from the factory assemblers i guess?

  2. Thanks for posting this! I've got to do an oil change for the first time this spring, and there's just nothing like first seeing someone else do it right. What did home owners do before youtube?? The manual is useless. They give a maintenance table telling you when to change the oil and filter, but I did a text search through the manual, and the only time the word "filter" is used is in that table. Ok, it shouldn't take a Nascar mechanic to figure out where the oil filter is on a lawn mower, but it shouldn't be that much work to mention it. And the diagram outlining how to change the oil is pretty much useless.

    Excellent job, James.

  3. any idea why would my mower ( Ariens 42") wont hold a charge anymore? I strated having this issues after 2 years of used. I need to keep jumping my mower in order to make it start, it will work good for the next 2 or 3 days but if I dont use it within those days it will die again and need to be jumped. any suggestion will be highly appreciated!
