I have the same type of Craftsman mower. I have taken two other mowers over for them to use and they have screwed up both of them. I won't loan them my rider.Hell, I flood the gas powered blower every time I fire it up. My lawnmower is a quick start Craftsman, and I just pull the cord and it fires first time.
Not that I know of. The truck they were near doesn't appear to have any leaks. Not sure on my brother's, but my cat didn't go anywhere near his truck. She normally avoids that part of the yard. She actually didn't usually go in to the part of the yard where I found her.Zanne, any of your autos have a coolant leak?
