Customer Question
I have a LTR166...

I have a LTR166 Lawn Tractor and it abruptly made a very loud and high pitched noise and when trying to restart just makes a humming sound but the engine does not engage. I thought that I had run over something but can find nothing in the yard that would indicate this. I also had a flat tire that was actually going flat as I was mowing and didn't notice until the mower stopped, Don't know if this is relevant or not. Any advice would help. Thank you

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

Is anyone there??

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the agriculture mechanic to know before I connect you?

No that's it.
