How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?
We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :
Pour penetrating oil into the cable (Photo 1). Grab the inner cable with pliers and work it up and down to loosen it. When the cable moves freely and all the penetrating oil has drained out, squirt silicone lubricant into the funnel to keep the cable sliding freely. Reinstall the cable (Photo 2).
When the crankshaft spins quickly, the flyweights open up, putting pressure on the governor cup and crank. This closes the throttle, limiting the air-fuel released into the engine. When the engine load increases, the crankshaft spins more slowly. This leads the flyweights to relax and the throttle to open back up.

My snapper mower only has two forward gears and no reverse. the clutch is worn. Could replacing the clutch fix the problem or is there something else going on with the transmission?
Typically if your clutch is worn, you would experience some slippage in all gears. If your forward gears work, but reverse does not, you should be looking at a potentially more serious problem.

I can’t remove the main pulley on the motor
Instead of spending all day banging on it all day and getting frustrated i usually run down to the local auto parts shop and borrow a puller, most places these days has a lending library where you have pay a deposit and once you bring back the tool they will give you your cash back. Best way to make sure it comes off without damaging it out of frustration. use a few squirts of penetrating fluid before you go and it will help as well.

Where is oil drain plug on MTD mower – Mtd LAWN MOWER PART # 683-04163B FRAME Assembly:RIDER
If it isn’t on the bottom of the engine (above the blade) then you don’t have one. This is not that uncommon. When you need to drain the oil, FIRST- pull the spark plug wire off!!! Then remove the dip stick or filler plug and turn the unit upside down and drain the oil.
Snapper series 23 wont turn over and when you try to manually start it, the pull seems to be locked.
That suggests that your piston is seized, but that may not be the case. First, check underneath to make sure that you have not allowed a build-up of debris that could be stopping the blade from turning. Second, remove the plug and see if the machine (since removing the plug will stop you from having any compression to pull against) will turn over. Might be a good idea to spray some WD-40 or something similar into the plug hole to see if that will loosen things up if the first two suggestions have no effect. You can, of course, (with the spark plug disconnected) attempt to turn the blade underneath. That would move your piston in the cylinder, and, once it is moving more easily, allow you to use your pull start to get the machine running.
Hope this get you started.
