I replace belts with Huskee Kevlar (blue) belts from TSC and have had very good luck with them. Most belts designed for automotive use don't work well on lawn tractors.

I noticed in your original post that you set the gap to .03. I assume you meant .30. If you really meant .03 and not .30 set the gap at .30 put her back together and start it up.

If the oil leak stopped it was probably due to the gasket being dry from not being run and warmed up. As long as the leak has stopped there is nothing to fix. Enjoy the tractor!!

I'm not quite sure what I'm looking at but it looks like the oil sump and the engine block. Is it oil that is leaking? If so it is probably the sump gasket which is leaking. If so the sump bolts may...

.If your fuel was 1 1/2 years old that is your problem. You will need to drain all of the fuel out of the tank and be sure the tank is clean. Gas should not run out of the carb which tells me it...

Was it running well before it quit? The first thing to check is your fuel delivery system. A common problem is a blocked vent in the fuel cap. Also check for obstructions in the fuel tank and be sure...
