I have purchased a used model 440777 with only 118 hours on it and am looking for the manual but the Briggs & Stratton website does not recognize it. Can you help me find one?

Mechanic's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

2 days now.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

No I am just looking for normal filter info and drainage for an oil change. I have replaced fuel and air filters.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

The manual from Snapper indicates that the two transmission fluid reservoirs should be slightly above the fill lines when cold. Mine are about 3/4 full which is well above the fill lines, is that harmful?

this is off of the engine.
Model: 440777
Type: 0141 B1
Code: 10072OYG
S/N: 100720 YG 22588

The transmissions being over in the site reservoirs is ok, will not hurt anything.
