Customer Question
Would like a blowup...

Would like a blowup of my Yardman 10.5 hp 30" #HKMS 105

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

Slipping started last winter

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have fuel in the tank? If so, is the shut-off valve open and the fuel clean?

Runs great , I just have to help it go

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

Yup

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

If my problem sounds like a slipping belt, how do I access it?
