I will try this again. every way I tried it kept the pics level across the page.
I started work on my 400 this spring. It is an 1981 with the upgraded k582. The restoration planed was a cosmetic one but that changed after I opened it up. This is my first posting with pictures so we'll see how it goes. Thanks to all who have helped me with problems so far.
The drive shaft was the main thing. I wasnt planning on taking th tower off, so that was alot of work. The motor had around 400 hours on it if you believe the hour meter, but it runs as if it is true. I have had to replace one of the neutral start switches. I had to pull the rock shaft to fix the deck adjustment hanger. I had to replace one of the front axles. I got the used 3point system. I got a new muffler. I shouldn't run through all this, it make s me add up all the dollar signs in my head.
The fuel pump was leaking so I replaced it, and it ran great. While mowing I ran it out of fuel. Filled it back up and now it doesn't want to run at all. It will stay running if I give it a little choke, but as soon as I let the choke off it dies. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
