Are the scraper bars meant to have both sides used? Ie. switch the long edge that is under the bucket to scrape and then the scraping edge goes under the bucket?
I think I finally cross referenced the scraper blade part number correctly. JD lists as M110540. Murray / Briggs / Noma list as 1740909BMYP. Even better is it can be had on Amazon for $30. Thinking I'll get one of these as well just to have.
Any other good to have spare parts?
How are the recoils to repair? Rope is not going in last 18-24 inches. Can still start it but wanted to take it off and see if one of the springs needs to be reset or what. Never had to fix a recoil starter before and we can't find the cord to use the electric starter.
If the bolts are in the middle of the scraper bar, it's reversible; If near the edge, No.
You do not need to have a spare, they last a long time if you have your skid shoes adjusted correctly. 1 paint stick thickness under the scraper blade, then lower your skid shoes to touch the floor. You must do this on concrete.
Recoils are easy to repair. You take the recoil off, not the entire housing. You pull out almost the entire cord, clamp it, pull 12" out from the inside, and you go around in a circle with the role as you turn the spring rope pulley counter clockwise I believe.
