No Oil Changes

The automotive-style paper air cleaner element and the improved oil fill tube protect the engines from debris, keeping the oil clean, eliminating the need for an oil change.

Adjusting the Handle Height

Push the knobs until they are loose. Move the handle to the upper or lower height position. Pull the knobs until the square edges of each carriage bolt fits into its related square hole. Tighten the handle knobs as tight as you can.

For many homeowners the side discharge works just fine, and since it is the default for most mowers, most simply use this method. Best of all, cutting tall grass is not a problem. Using the side discharge is easily the fastest method to use. Mowing tall or wet grass is best done with a side discharge.
Can I Use Motor Oil in My Lawn Mower? If the engine manufacturer`s operator manual recommends 10W-30 or 10W-40, the same motor oil types used in vehicles, then these can also be used in your lawn mower.
Over time, oil itself breaks down and needs replacing in order to effectively fulfill its role. If you ignore an oil change too long, your vehicle`s engine can seize up or experience some other serious problem. Should this happen, you may need to rebuild the engine, replace the engine, or buy a new car.
Overfilling a lawn mower oil tank will negatively affect engine performance and possibly prevent the mower from starting. Too much oil in a lawn mower can easily clog the air filter, foul spark plugs, and potentially cause a hydro-lock, which could bend the connection rods in a multi-cylinder mower.
Side discharge mowers direct the grass to the side, and using a bag attachment directs the grass clippings into the bag. Among these three types of mowers, only the mulching mower leaves you with finely cut grass cuttings, which provide fertilizer and shade for the soil.
A side discharge mower is great for mowing lawns that are large in size. This mower will do the work much faster if you allow the cut grass to blow in various directions. This mower is much faster because it does not have to spend time converting cut grass into mulch.

Toro recycler will start until primed gas is consumed.
ANSWER : I had similar problem and cleaned the spark plug and that seemed to have worked, but I think that may be a temporary fix because the engine still seems to be running unevenly. I feel that it must be a larger problem with the carb. If anyone can help this novice to adjust the carb or clean both carb and filter, or offer other solutions I would appreciate your assistance.
