Hi a new member from Australia here.
I have owned... dare i say it a 14-38HXL for years... the hydro has just about quit so after much searching i went finally found a 244-5!!!!! I love this thing but its had a hard life, its built to last and I can tinker with it. It has a 42" deck that needs some work but that will come with time.
Finally got the engine going but I have some questions re trans/Clutch and Engine:).
This may seem like a stupid question but should I be able to move the crankshaft vertically? The engine runs but vibrates a lot? There is some horisontal movement in the shaft as well but I figure that may just be a lower bearing as I think that a previous owner bolted the electric clutch together and was starting the mower with the blade clutch engaged.
I welcome any thoughts:)

Hello all, was wondering if anyone could help me out with info or advice on how to go about fixing my brake pedal on my '92 312-8. I don't know if it's just a pin/part that needs replacing, or there is more to it than that...I have hand tools, but am not really mechanically inclined---learning this stuff as I go. Pics/instructions to follow, would be appreciated.
My machine is parked/put up for the winter, 'bout 120miles from here; going about lots of this backwards, I know, but I'm trying to build my store of knowledge, for now, Thanks for any and all help.
Here is a pic for reference. Dad told me it is a common problem; we just didn't get to it lasttime I was back home, where it is stored currently (after going over fluids, cleaning, etc). I just like things to be "right"...he laughed when I found a replacement NOS hr meter for the pictured empty hole (now since installed),,,to him THAT was an uneeded "bell" (as in, ...whistle).
If the mods need to move this post, no problem; I looked around, didn't see a "specific" place that fit better to post my question.
