SOURCE: change oil in riding lawn mower

look at the side of the engine down low. There should be a pipe plug screwed in that has a square head. Put a drain pan under the area and remove this plug and the oil will drain out. It's best if the engine is warm. You should get 1 1/2 quarts of oil out of it. Let it drain for about 5 minutes and then re-install the pipe plug. Add 1 1/2 quarts of 30W oil and then cut the grass !

SOURCE: i need an owners manual for a murray riding mower.

First off, confirm that the tractor is in Neutral and the deck is not engaged. You also need to be on the seat, and in some cases your foot must be on the brake. Then try it.

If by "jump" you mean essentially connect one end of a jumper cable to the battery power coming to the solenoid, and the other end of the SAME jumper cable to the 6 gauge (+/-) wire on the other side of the solenoid that goes to the starter, and it cranks, this means one of two things.

More than likely it is the solenoid that is bad, but the only way to confirm this is to make certain that when you turn the key, it sends power to the small (18 gauge) wire on the solenoid. This is easy to check with a test light.
If power is goes to the solenoid when the key is turned, but the engine fails to crank then the solenoid is bad.

If no power is there, then the problem has something to do with either the ignition switch or ignition wiring, or more likely it is a failure of one of the safety switches, under the seat, transmission in gear, sometimes if the deck is engaged, or other.

One way to confirm that the problem is with a safety switch or ignition switch and rule out the solenoid would be to jump a wire directly from the positive terminal to the small wire on the solenoid that comes from the ignition. If this causes the engine to crank, then the solenoid is OK.

How can I stop leak?


Hi Charlotte:
You'll need to determine the exact source of the leak:
- Failed hose? Replace it.
- Hose not tight on coupling? If there is enough slack, cut 1/2 " off end of hose and re-install.
- Hole in tank or coupling tube. Repair or replace.
Hope this helps.
Cheers.

I need a deck belt for my Murray riding lawn mower model number is 13an772s058


If you still have the old belt, even if it is broken. Taje it to your local lawn and garden center that sells parts and service on riding mowers. Have them measure the belt length and width. If the belt is missing, have them look up belt for the model number of the mower you have.
