craftsman lts 3000
I bought this tractor last spring, it was used. paid 350 and it came with 42 in mower deck and 42 inch plow. i need someone to help me fix it.
1. stearingwheel is extremely loose.
2. seat sensor is problematic, i am short and only weigh 140
3. running rough
4. started kicking out of gear on takeoff, once going it seems to be ok.
i have never had a riding mower and cannot afford to buy a new one. i have just under 1 acre and its a hill. it seems that i may have caused the issue with the transmission by not starting off in the right way. i need to know where to find parts and a manual so i can fix it. i am mechanically incline but have never worked on small engines or transmissions.
I live in dubuque iowa so if there is someone around here that could help it would be greatly appreciated.
