SOURCE: The muffler on my grasshopper mower has come

No, not with that engine. I simply cannot IMAGINE that engine relies on muffler backpressure to run. Without the muffler, it'd run awfully loud, though, and may catch things on fire, so you'd best see about getting the muffler put back on.

As to not starting - Does it have a fuel shutoff valve? Check that, then check the spark plug(s) and the fuel level in the tank. Check the charge on the battery, charge if necessary. Test for spark. Unless you think it might be flooded (which would also prevent it from starting), try starting it with a SMALL bit of spray starting fluid.

Does it have a rider-on-the-seat interlock? Are you heavy enough to satisfy the interlock seat? Can you figure out how to get past that interlock?

I have a model 2132 grasshopper mower. The right hydro motor stopped working. How do I disassemble this hydro motor to repair it ?

Grasshopper doesn't seem to sell repair parts for ZT mower hydromotors. The motor is only available as a unit for $1000.
That being said, someone built it out of machined parts, so it could be rebuilt if you can get the machine work done. Maybe.

Where do I find the alternator on a 1999 zero turn model 225 grasshopper lawnmower?

I will assume that you have a battery and a starter on your machine. If you do the alternator is incorporated into the starter. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Battery losing charge

Sounds like you have defective diode rectifier. this little box when working properly allows your voltage to only go 1 way to charge the battery. if you have used a vehicle to boost the tractor you have damaged the rectifier. because a vehicle running puts out 14.8 volts lawn equipment is 12 volts only you can boost using a vehicle only if it is NOT running

How to remove a starter for grasshopper 616 lawn mower

First of all, you need to order the special socket wrench that Briggs and Stratton makes just for this task. (Mine has a Briggs and I'm just assuming yours does too. After that you will find it simple except for the difficulty getting to the bolts. If you need further assistance, re post your query.

Just need a wire diagram for a woods 1250

I owned the same model, quite simple wiring. I went to the local Grasshopper Dealer and cross referenced it with the Grasshopper model 1212. (which is the same model because grasshopper made all of Wood's mowers for quite some time) I asked them politely and they printed it off for me for free and then I made a few purchases (oil filter, air filter, etc) because I didn't want to seem like a cheap skate.
