Wash Mower - Pissed Friend
Hello All, I need your help to figure out if I have done something really wrong, or is my buddy just crazy.
I borrowed a friend's mower (Craftsman 19hp B&S 42" 917.270771) as mine was temporarily broken. He advised me to not touch anything on his mower, not to 'unbolt' anything and be careful not to damage it.
I filled the left tire, added some oil (was a bit low) and did my lawn. As a show of appreciation for his letting me borrow it, I washed it for him. Used engine degreaser on the engine, auto wash soap on the body, and cleaned the rims and tires. He won't talk to me now for 4 days.
QUESTION IS: Did I violate some code or law of man's machines? In the world of mowers and men, does "do not touch anything" also mean "don't clean it"?
