Hi I need a parts and repair manual for the yardman 12a-978q452 mower , I can not finded on line.

I know this was more than a year ago, but I just got one second hand and had to find the same thing. It's made by MTD in Canada. Here's the site to find it. They don't have the manual for the exact same model number, but I've gone through it enough to know it'll work.

Go under the mower and install a cable shorting clamp like you use for car park brake cables that are stretched, which is most likely your problem. You can buy this type of small "U" bolt clamp from any hardware store.

Yardman intek 12A-979L401 runs with white smoke and stops, the ohv valve cover is full of a oil and gass mixture, the oil fill has the smell of gas in it

The carburetor has probably malfunctioned and the needle valve is staying open. It is responsible for most of your problems. Oil will HAVE to be changed, Don't run it till fixed. Pull carb, disassemble and clean noting condition of internal parts. Install rebuild kit if possible. The white smoke is a result of either water in the gas or gas in the oil....or a combination of both.
