Brenda AmRhein Where can you purchase parts for a Power Kraft
18/42 Model Number TMO-3500006? Is there a catalogue?

Pw If there's any way, I could sure use a copy of that manual. I'd owe you a lot. Thanks
Gary Davis Joe: These are MTD numbers. Take them to any lawn mower repair shop and they can get you the parts you need. This unit is a 1984 model. They should also be able to copy you a belt routing schematic.
gary davis Joe , I'm sorry, I looked at the MTD number wrong. My appolgy!!!! The third digit [34(0)]is the year of manufacture. In this case probably 1990.then 699 then (H)= 46" deck then [088] was the code for Montgomery Wards equipment. Gary
Brian Arnall Anyone, I too just got a 18/46. If there is anyway I can get on of those manuals, please let me know. I could sure use one.
Chris I have the manuals for the b&s engine, but i don't have the actual mower manual..........www.briggsandstratton.com........it has all of the out of print manuals.
John I went online at www.bringgsandstratton.com downloaded engine manual free and phone them at 414-259-5262 for tech support on what type of battery and cold crack is req. I too have a Montgomery Wards TMO3500006 riding mower with BriggsStratton 18HP Twin II Model #422707 Type 121401. Who is this foreign guy Robert Johnson? Scam?
Curtis I just acquired a Montgomery Ward 10HP (Briggs & Stratton) Riding Mower FOR FREE! Not to commercialize this forum, but www.craigslist.com is a great resource for finding used equipment!!! The serial# is TMO33875A1041C. Can anyone help me with what the numbers mean? Also, I am in need of an owner's manual for it...
Sam Owner/Parts manuals for the Powr Kraft Lawn tractors are available on MTD site. Go to service or manuals and search for montgomery ward.
You can convert your MW TMO model number to a MTD model number and then get the owners manual/parts list for it. TMO 3500005 and TMO3500006 are covered.

Lori I to am looking for a manuel for the Power Kraft 18/46 Model TM 03400005-134Q699h088. It is Powered by Briggs & Stratton. Serial NO# 2E034h20019.
JEFF When I work on my Power Craft, I turn it on its side. Care must be taken since oil from the crankcase will flow out into the air breather where the air filter resides. Don't want the air filter to absorb oil. ....And that was where the problem was. When you turn the mower on its side, oil will flow out of that transmission hose. I confused it with the crankcase oil. I found that it was easier to put the mower on its side where the grass is exhausted. Well, that is on the side where that hose with the red plug is. That red plug allows the transmission to breath BUT it allows the oil to come out of the transmission. I learned that if you patiently pour oil into that hose (pull out the red plug...has a clamp) you can fill it. I can see no other way to fill it. Use straight 30 weight non-detergent oil....something not easy to find but if you have a Pep Boys near you they carry it. I would imagine a detergent oil might work but I would rather not chance it.....same with multi-viscosity oil. Again, use 30W non-detergent. If I had a clamp I would have clamped that hose off. In any case it takes a long time to fill since the air must escape back up through the hose.

I had the same problem. 1st it would not make it up hills, it started to make noise, and then I actually had it freeze up on me. I added the oil, jacked up the rear wheels, and turned them by hand. I guess the oil circulated and freed up the transmission. That was two years ago and the trans is fine. If you do turn the mower on its side, make sure the deck is in the full-up position. I had it down once and it bent some linkage and the mower would not start. The best thing would be to have some kind of lift...a fork lift or ramps when changing/sharpening the blades. I typically scrape the bottom of the mower and then paint the bottom with that stuff that combines with the rust (Locktite 'Extend' Rust Inhibitor...any good hardware store has it). You try to get as much rust off by scraping and then paint that stuff on. It will combine with the rust and turn black. You can then paint it with green enamel (not latex...real enamel). I just use green to sort of match the mower but who cares...you can not see it. By doing this, grass does not stick as easily to the underside of the deck, making it clog less. Unfortunately I have left it outside in the elements so I have used the same procedure on a few places on the top of the deck. I have replaced the belt shroud bolts with stainless steel ones since the the standard steel ones rust up. It has been quite some time since I made the initial posting....the power of the internet. I guess I should find that posting and post this info in there.

Hope this helps and solves your problem. If you live in a cold climate like I do, probably would be a good idea to keep the can of oil in the house so it is thinner when you fill the trans....probably would be a good idea if the whole mower were warm so it would flow into the trans easier. If you live in a place like Florida, you are fortunate since you do not have snow on the ground like I do and you can work on your mower....but in Florida it is hard to outrun a hurricane on a riding lawnmower.
