Full model number? When did you last use it? Has either rear wheel been removed? Do you see the drive belt turning the top pulley on transmission when engine is running? Will mower roll in freewheel?

How many ques. do I get to ask during the free trial period, how long is the trial.when I ask a ques. to you it says I will be charged when I am trying your program . I don't want to be charged over my agreed amount. Also , how can I know how many ques I have asked ,also am I signing a long term contract like dish tv ?

Both tires and rims are matching , so I don't know if wheels removed . Also where is the model no. I looked everywhere but don't see it.

I was trying to determine if you had removed one of the tires for flat repair. If tire was removed, he axle key could have been lost. The mower would not travel. Next, I was trying to determine if the drive belt for mower was turning the transmission pulley.
