    I rebuilt the carburetor not long ago and the tractor was running fine, but after sitting for a few weeks it's having some carburetor issues.

This month there is this baby in the classifieds, an 853...

    Hi all! Happy weekend! So... Topped off the oil in my YT3000 and it ran fine, no smoke though I probably added too much, until I stopped to empty the bagger, then it locked up like it had fluid lock in the cylinder. I drained some oil to get it just below full (engine was hot, of course, and oil...

    Note: looked over forum a few times, I assume deck related repairs belong here as well? My father bought this around 2017 back before I knew about mowers enough to offer him advice on what to buy.
