    You're correct Star Tech time for better eyeballs. Lol.

    Defective ignition switch?

    The wiring diagram in the parts break down is 5 pin. Why did you buy a 7 pin switch ? Or do you mean the original switch is a 7 pin ? https://www.partstree.com/models/425000x8a-murray-42-lawn-tractor-2003/electrical-system-1/

    Oily Spark Plug

    I think enough about talking about this. Good luck with the repair, one way or another. Over and out.

    Oily Spark Plug

    Bert He's just deglazing a cylinder bore. Doesn't care about the physics of it. The more he knows, the more confused he will become. "NASA, we have a lawnmower engine to fix".

    Good luck with your repair.

    Oily Spark Plug

    No! Use mineral spirits or kerosine. The hone you are getting is just fine. The square corners will round a little as it breaks in. Stop thinking about it and do the job. I've been rebuilding cars/ trucks/snowmobiles/engines/trannys/rears for 50 years. Don't overthink the wheel.

    Hustler Super Z 2008 Pump problem maybe.

    Here's one explaining the system. Also if you're going to do this repair, clean the outside of the pump first before disassembly. Clean is the key to this job.

    Hustler Super Z 2008 Pump problem maybe.

    I would think it has an oil filter. I so, cut it open and squeeze the element out. What do you see the the pleats of the filter. Here's a video on rebuilding a pump. Use it as a guild.

    Oily Spark Plug

    At quick pace to 10 seconds is about right. Look up a youtube on honing basics of cylinder bore. It's really not hard at all.

    Yard Man 3hp 18" Chain Drive Rototiller repairs

    If the shaft is still OK, yes all that would be needed is the bushing and plug. I would change the roller bearing on the other end of the shaft also. Could you post a picture or two of the problem also ?

    Troybilt model 13wm77ks011 only drives in reverse

    Look at where the forward/reverse lever (3) hooks to the rod (29) underneath. That rod goes to the transaxle Make sure it's pulling and pushing the link on the trans the same distance. Look for anything that looks to be an adjustment for that rod also. The parts breakdown of your machine doesn't...

    Oily Spark Plug

    Yes. Go slow to get the feel of it. Only let half of the stone come out of the bore each way.

    automatic compression release, KS590-3020

    I'm going to guess this is a OHV engine. If it is all you do is loosen/remove rocker arms and remove push rods. No need to remove valve springs.

    Hustler Super Z 2008 Pump problem maybe.

    Could the pump have lost oil and its low now ? And I agree with Star Tech. The area must be clean when working on a hydraulic pump. Dirt and hydraulics don't mix. Have rebuilt parts on Cat machines and know that.

    Briggs twin cylinder cam timing

    I know this is a shot in the dark, but always thought it should be dot to dot. (Crank and cam).

    Hustler Super Z 2008 Pump problem maybe.

    Don't know what number pump you have but a quick search does show pump rebuild kits for Hustler. Seals and gaskets no hard parts.

    Thanks for the info on that.

    Troybilt model 13wm77ks011 only drives in reverse

    Did this happen overnight or did it come on slowly ? Have you checked the drive belt ? You have a rear that is prone to have forward gear problems. Here's a picture of it.

    Oily Spark Plug

    With the piston out, ball hone. When ball honing keep the cylinder wet with mineral spirits. When done wash the cylinder with warm soapy water and rinse then dry. Then with clean paper towels use automatic trans oil to wipe the cylinder down. You will see a black film when doing this. That is...
