Re: Bought a used SR1433 for $575, what all should I do to it now?
The "00" grease is semi liquid,kind of between oil and grease,any thing heavier wont lube right and anything lighter will leak,since there are no real seals. "00" can be hard to find,but most real mower service shops should sell it,I saw a quart on E-bay for $25 including shipping,this is expensive.The transmission(drivers R/H side) holds 24 oz and chain case(middle of rear axle )holds only 2oz so don't overfill,that causes leaks,the transmission should fill through the top hole(when on rear bumper) since a gear is next to the bottom hole,use bottom hole for level.Since we don't know for sure,what exact model you have, if there is a zerk fitting near the Drivers L/H rear bearing,be sure to keep it greased, there is a bushing which will wear and cause expensive problems,yours could have the Ball Bearings, which lube from the transmission.Check the front end for slop and the nylon bushings,they are cheap and keep the metal parts from wearing out.grease the spindle,fitting on the bottom side,easy to get to while changing blade.
