How do I install a new battery? The manual doesn' t cover this.


Many garden tractors have the battery located under the seat. Move the tractor to an area you can work easily in and shut off the ignition.

1 Access the battery / compartment.
2 Identify the (-) Negative and (+) terminals on the battery.
3 Note orientation of the battery (-) or (+) as it is installed in the tractor.
4 Place a piece of tape on the (-) battery cable's insulation and another near the (-) battery terminal.
5 Photograph the battery with cell phone, etc.
6 Remove any clamps or brackets if they will be in the way of removing cables.
7 Remove the (-) cable from the battery terminal first by loosening the bolt or screw with required wrench, battery pliers, screwdriver, etc. by lifting it up / sliding out of the terminal.
8 Remove the (+) cable from the battery terminal last by loosening the bolt or screw with required wrench, battery pliers, screwdriver, etc. by lifting it up / sliding out of the terminal.
9 Remove any clamps or brackets if not already done previously.
10 Lift the battery out of the compartment straight up without tilting to prevent spilling acid from the battery.
11 If acid is not already in new battery: place new battery on several layers thick of newspaper and
a add battery acid to new battery as per instructions included with the battery.
b Place caps on battery when filled.
12 Identify the (-) Negative and (+) terminals on the new battery.
13 Place a piece of tape near the new battery's (-) terminal.
Place battery into compartment so that it is in the same relative orientation as step #3 above. This will ensure both cables will reach the correct terminal on the battery.
13 Check installed battery to photo to be sure it is oriented correctly.
14 Install any clamps or brackets if they will not be in the way of installing cables.
15 Connect the (+) cable [no tape] to the (+) battery terminal [no tape].
16 Double check that the (+) connection is correct and tight.
17 Connect the (-) cable [with tape] to the (-) battery terminal [with tape].
18 Double check that the (+) connection is correct and tight.
19 Install any clamps or brackets if not previously done in step #14 above.
20 Dispose of newspaper, acid container, etc in trash.
21 Recycle old battery where new battery was purchased / collect deposit.
Done!

I installed the correction tape and it does not correct


Sounds like you have diagnosed the problem. Remove the correct tape and make sure that it's not the "sticky" type. (it will be hard to unwind if it is). Next try to manually lift the part that's supposed to move to see if it does. If it's sluggish (hard to move) put rags around it to prevent over spray and carefully clean all the moving parts with WD40. Make very sure that the WD40 does not get on any electronic parts! It will also mess up the platen. So, the more rags around the moving parts, the better. I used to work on IBM typewriters, and WD40 sometimes works wonders.

Just recently, our typewriter ribbon ran out and we ordered a new. It arrived and it works fine. However, the correction tape that we already had installed no longer "corrects." It rotates...


The ribbon you got is either very old or it is a non correctable one. The knob should be yellow or orange. The other possibility is that the nlift off is installed wrong the dull side should be towards the paper.

I installed new correction tape, but there's too much play in it. It keeps unravelling. I have no idea how to tighten it up. When I turn the take-up spool, it just unravels it more without tightening...


Verify that you have installed the proper correction tape. The types of tape that can be used with this system are: Item 1030 - Correctable Film Ribbon, 1230 - Correctable Film Ribbon 2pack, 1031 - Multi Strike Ribbon, 1032 - Nylon Ribbon, 3010 - Lift-off correction tapes (to be used with 1030 and 1230 ribbons), 4010 Cover-up Correction tape (to be used with 1031 and 1032 ribbons).
Make sure that the correction tape is installed properly. Pass the tape through the left guide, behind the ribbon guide and out through the right guide. The rough side of the tape should face the platen. Attach the feeder spool to the pin on the left. Attach the take up spool to the pin on the right. Turn the take up spool counter clockwise until a small amount of tape has wound around it. Replace the cassette ribbon and close the case cover. Press [CODE] + [RESET] to move the carrier to the previous position.

The correction tape isn't working. it's installed properly, i think, but it doesn't erase anything.


Try taking the tape out and re-installing with the "dull" side towards the paper...if that doesn't work try a new correction tape.

Correction tape


To replace the correction tape:

1) use [SPACE BAR] or <<-¦ to move the carrier to the centre of the platen
2) open the top cover
3) remove the cassette ribbon (if installed)
4) pull off both spools, pressing against the correction tape with your thumbs. Bring it back to a position parallel with the platen and lift it up and out.
5) Pass the new tape through the left guide, behind the ribbon guide, and out thropugh the right guide. The rough (stick) side of the tape should face the platen.
6) Attach the feeder spool to the pin on the left
7) Attach the take-up spool to the pin on the right
8) Turn the take-up spool counter-clockwise until a small amount of white tape has wound around it
9) Replace the cassette ribbon and close the top cover
10) Press 'spider web' key +// to move the carrier to the previous position.

Hope this helps.
