Also thank God for Saturday. I usually do my chores in the dark, go to work, come home in the dark. Did the fuel filter in the pitch black at 9PM the other night.
Anyway, with some time and sunlight, I pulled the old girl out of the shed and checked the new filter in the sunlight. All good fuel in there. The crap went with the old one.
While it sat there idling, I lifted the bucket and located the side cover mounting bolts. When I took off the wing nut holding the outer air filter, I heard a strong hiss and the filter has SO much suction that I couldn't pull it until I shut off the engine.
I pulled the outer, loosened the inner and started back up. It ran like a champ. Asked the owner when the air filter was changed last. Maybe three or four years ago. Mystery solved.
Now to figure out how to service the transmission.
