What type of oil do you use for 6.5 hp yardman lawn mower mtd 160cc 21 inch self propelled


The manual will call for 30 weight, but 10w30 works just fine. Be careful to not overfill the crankcase. Your machine will take 16 - 18 oz's when the crankcase is empty.

I replaced the pull cord on an mtd mower. and now it won't rewind the cord?


You have to tension the spring before installing the cord. Remove the cord. Put the recoil assembly in a vise. Prepare the ends of the cord so they can be threaded into place. Spin the pulley in the proper direction until it is tight. Align the hole in the housing with the hole in the pulley. Thread the rope in and knot it and pull tight. Slowly let the spring tension retract the rope. Cut the rope to length, install handle, knot and test.

Pull rope cord on Yard-Man Mower, gets to a point and seizes. Can turn through it by hand with blade but still stops at that point each time with cord


My mower had the same problem. There was some dirt or debris built up on one side of the blade drive shaft, but once I shot some oil onto the shaft and turned the blade a few times by hand, it ran good again.

Hope that helps!
