How to: Make A Riding Lawn Mower FAST!
Here's a video covering the pulley swaps, and custom tensioner pulleys I've
built and installed on our off road and mudding tractors. Pulley swaps make
you lawn mower faster. You want to
increase the size of the front, and/or make the back pulley smaller to
increase the speed of your lawn mower or tractor.
Green MTD has a 4" front, stock rear
Craftsman crawler has stock size pulleys
Murray has 4" in the front, and 5" in the rear
Craftsman Deck removal How to
A how to video is for Craftsman's made after 2000. The removal of decks on
older machines is very similar. This is also needed to be done before the
install of a snow blower.

Brand New Craftsman Riding Mower Review and Test Drive "Please Read Below For A Detailed Review"
Music used with permission from www.PurplePlanetMusic.com
The performance of the mower is perfect! Don't expect much when it comes
to ease of use. The controls on the sides of the seat are difficult to use
and the blade height lever is far more heavy than the old style which was
positioned on the side of the engine. The ride is incredibly smooth and
the hydrostatic transmission makes accelerating/deceleration effortless.
It will not mow in reverse so anytime you need to stop and reverse you have
to operate the speed lever to slow down with your left hand then disengage
the blades with your right hand then reverse and come back to neutral with
your left hand then engage the blades with your right hand and accelerate
with your left hand. Why can't a person just reverse and keep going?
Simply put, "Great Performance, But Not Comfortable To Operate."
On a scale of 1-10
Blade Engagement Lever: 3
Deck Height Adjustment Lever: 1
Speed Adjustment Lever: 5
Parking Brake: 4
Turning Radius: 6
Cutting Precision: 9
Valve Adjustment Briggs & Stratton Intek OHV (Craftsman Riding Lawnmower / Lawn Tractor)
Time to tune up the intek engine in my Craftsman lawn tractor, learn how to
adjust the valves to factory specification. This procedure is very similar
in most OHV engines in many popular brands of riding lawnmowers equipped
with a Briggs & Stratton small engine.
I also show you a larger oil filter that may be used on these engines and
it is cheaper than what the OEM recommends. The number for the long filter
is a NAPA 1348 and the short filter is 7035 check out the pricing from your
local auto parts store.
I have a new gasket on order because it is unlikely the old gasket will
reseal without leaking. I will also be changing the spark plug to a NGK V
type to see if the performance is any better, this lawnmower runs like a
top and it is six years old.
I am an independent Amsoil dealer, the synthetic engine oil developed for
small engines has been used in this lawnmower since it was new. The engine
oil has not been changed since last year and it is a dark amber color, it
has not turned black. Amsoil ATM has not contributed to any visible
deposits as you will see in the video, the inside of the valve cover is
shiny metal and there is no varnish build up like you would see from using
regular motor oil. I also run Amsoil in the hydrostatic pump and the final
drive in the transmission.
Thanks for watching and all comments are welcome!
