it says there are 2 new posts, in the center section there are no bold titles so it's not there...click on new posts and it displays the "PLEASE HELP need a seat" post or whatever it was.

Red X for a pic.

I think some of the sections don't show. For example, there can be a new off-topic post but it won't show in the list. Lash did that to try and keep just motorcycle related stuff up.

I have a nice red lawnmower. It's a bout 10 years old.

I change the oil every Spring - just use standard dino oil.

I have noticed the tread on the wheels is pretty much worn bald - can anyone recommend a good brand of tyre for a 4.5 hp red lawnmower?

Thanks.

I would strongly suggest round. They're the best.

No way a 10 year old red lawnmower puts out 4.5 hp. Do you have a PCIII and where is the dyno proof or is this just seat of the sneakers?

Maybe your powerband snapped. You'll have to replace it with an aftermarket one, just be carefull whoever does the job doesn't forget to pre-stress it a few times so it doesn't crack the first time you start-up the engine.

Up for a ride?

if you are mowing your lawn in the snow I recommend Kold Kutter screws for studding your lawn mower tires for added traction. oh and a slip on exhaust will get you to at least 8.5 HP

Are you running the gnome WM Beefsalad? What flavor of Linux are you running?

XFCE4 on Xubuntu 9.04 with this laptop (Toshiba Qosmio), I also have XFCE4 on Xubuntu UNR 9.10 (ubuntu netbook remix) on my Acer Aspire One.


And I think I now know why I thought the forums were "full of shit"....posts in the classifieds section don't show up in the center of the page, so I guess I'm the one full of shit!
