    I was going to say the same thing. The grass is so dry I can hear it breaking when walking on it.

    Dirt area is like a dessert, mostly sand.

    We finally got some here and there last week. Was supposed to rain yesterday but didn't. But we have cooled some (for now). So that's good.

    @ Plain Jane Taco

    Just an update, I manually rev the engine up now the idle is a little higher.

    At a better observation the screw I was trying to unloosen was a carburetor screw and not a adjustment screw. I can't find any adjustment screws. Just to make about the adjustment screw I'll call the shop where I purchase the carb from and ask about adjusting it.

    One YouTube video I watch show someone adjusting the idle by bending a lever to tension the spring going to the carb. Another video show adjusting the lawn mower throttle cable ends to increase idle.

    We're supposed to be back in the mid to upper 80's Tuesday. It felt good while it lasted.

    Really no rain in the last 1 1/2 to 2 months. The produce markets are hurting from the drought. As usual when we get really dry summer the Fall season going to flood a lot.

    We dropped down to the mid 80s. That's a break for us based on the last month or so

    Many newer mowers have automatic chokes and throttles. Makes adjustments a little tougher. I was going to suggest bending the linkage a tiny bit to pull on the throttle plate a hair. Wouldn't take much movement at all to bump the idle. So you would just have to play around with it until the get it where you want it

    I'm a fan of the yellow. But that does look clean though.

    Just looking for a change?

    Ugh... just noticed that my headlight assemblies are starting to melt again on the DTRL area. Exactly the same on both sides. They were already replaced once for this issue under the TSB.

    Interesting thing I did today. I've actually done this before. But not recently. I borrowed my buddy's borescope to check the inside of the boxed sections (near the cats) of frame.

    Thankfully they looked great. For the last 3 years I've filled up those areas with Liquid Wrench rust inhibitor twice a year...late fall and late spring. Before the spring application I take the garden hose with the nozzle set to a high pressure setting and blowout the area to remove anything that might be loose. Let it dry for several days then fill it up.

    I also do the leaf springs, front cross member and bottom of the frame channels.

    Very pleased with what I saw. I will continue my routine. :thumbsup:

    Oh....and this scope Bluetooths with my phone. I tried like hell to get some screen shots of the frame inside. But to no avail. Just couldn't hold the phone, the scope and screen shot all at the same time. The pix came out as nonsense :notsure:

    What's the plan? Aftermarket? I'm sure Depo makes some OEM replacements and some upgraded ones too

    It's only about the size of a nickel. I just replaced the bulbs. They seemed hot. Wasn't sure that was a sign if a bad filament. Tried LED's, but that messed up my blinkers.

    If it gets worse, I'll complain to my dealership about not replacing with the corrected assembly. That was about 4 yrs ago.

    It uses a dual filament bulb....one for the parking lamp and one for the turn signal. The DRLs fire both filaments so the DRL will be bright. So it's normal for an incandescent be hot. In fact, that's what's causing the melting of the lense over time.

    LEDs burn much cooler. But the resistance is a fraction of an incandescent. So the flasher unit hyper flashes because it thinks you have a burned out bulb. I think some of the higher end ones have built in resistors. But don't hold me to that.

    Found a sneaky snake today while I was trenching with the tractor. Moved him to a safe spot across the yard. Feisty little thing :rolleyes:

    Just looked at the forecast for tomorrow...think I might die. 111 with 51% humidity. Just shoot me. When it gets to be over 110 and the humidity is over 10%, my house AC can barely maintain 79 degrees inside downstairs and 90 degrees upstairs. Tomorrow is going to be brutal.
