Hey guys! Being new to the club, and fairly new to garden tractors and mowers, can you help me out with some of the abbreviations you are using? I assume anything gb is gear box, but beyond that I am ignorant. Help!! Steve

One other clarification - "Welcome to the SITE" is appropriate for this initial thread starter since CLUB membership and hence a "Welcome to the Club", requires payment of dues.
