Many homeowners are pursuing the perfect emerald.
This usually means that their mower has suffered a lot of use and abuse.
Without regular preventive maintenance, there is a good chance that an over-working mower will splash out when you need it most.
Of course, you can buy a tune for $50 to $75 --
But if you\'re willing to invest in a bit of sweat equity, it\'s not hard to do it yourself.
Just follow these steps-by-
Step instructions for adjusting the mower.
To get started, you need a socket wrench, plug wrench, screwdriver, lock clamp, oil pan, working gloves, air filter, spark plug, oil and gasoline. 1.
Disconnect the spark plug before starting the mower work.
This is a necessary safety feature as you will be in contact with the mower blade.
The mower cannot start unexpectedly when the spark plug is disconnected.
Just find the spark patch and disconnect the rubber boots with your hands. 2.
Drain engine oil check your owner\'s manual to see how to drain oil from your mower.
If you do not have a manual, search online using the brand and model of the mower.
For most thrust mowers, you can either remove the oil discharge plug located on the chassis, or tilt the side of the mower and drain it through the injection tubing.
If you have a drain: tilt the mower back, loosen the plug with a socket wrench and remove it by hand.
Prepare the drain, because the oil will flow out once you remove the plug.
To drain the oil by injecting the tube: take out the oil ruler and carefully pour the oil into your drain pipe.
Be sure to tilt the mower to the side closest to the filler tube so you don\'t leak oil in the rest of the mower.
Do not pour the used oil into the garbage or sewer.
Many auto repair shops will dispose of used oil, but you may have to pay a little. 3.
Replacing the air filter is usually blocked by oil and debris, so replacing the filter before each mowing season will help to protect the mower\'s engine and ensure its optimal operation.
To replace the air filter, remove the air filter products cover using a screwdriver.
Your mower should have a paper or foam air filter.
All you need to do is remove the old filter and insert the new one.
If it is a paper filter, make sure that the folded side face is exposed.
Reconnect the air filter cover with a screwdriver and wipe it clean.
Cost of : $5 to $104.
Before removing the plug manually, please replace the spark plug first. Loosen the plug using a spark plug wrench.
You will notice that there is an electrode and an extended arm at one end of the insert mower.
Make sure there is a gap in the new spark plug, because if the arm touches the electrode, it prevents sparks and the mower does not start.
Insert and tighten the new Mars plug with your hands.
Use the spark plug wrench to turn around again.
Be careful when you tighten so you don\'t damage the porcelain tip of the spark plug.
$3 to $65.
Grinding the blade you can grind the blade with a metal file or a table grinder, or have a professional grind the blade at the mower repair shop.
No matter which method you choose, you need to remove the blade.
Tilt the mower side and use a locking clamp to prevent the blade from slipping.
Then, use the socket wrench to unscrew the bolt that holds the blade in place.
Wear a pair of working gloves to prevent cutting your hand while touching the blade.
To solve minor wear, clip the blade onto the pair and run the metal file along the cutting edge.
For more damaged blades, you will need to use a table grinder.
If you don\'t have a desktop grinder or you\'re not sure how to use it, take the blade to the repair shop and get the professional to grind it.
The cost of sharpening the mower blade: $10 to $206.
Before refueling, replace the oil and gasoline to make sure to plug in the drain.
Many push mower use SAE 10 w-30 oil.
