txab replied to Seth Putnam's topic in 1973-1987 Chevrolet & GMC Square Body / Rounded Line PickupsUsually not. Pretty straight forward. Disconnect positive cable at battery.Then work on removing starter.. You'll usually need to check to see if the starter needs to be shimmed for proper clearance against the flywheel when engaged. Probably plenty of Youtube videos out there to help you.
I bought a Toro Recycler, Personal Pace version with electric start about 10 years ago. I love that thing. Other than oil, blade sharpening and a spark plug occasionally, it's been a workhorse. The Personal pace feature is nice. I walk faster than my late wife did, but we both could use it. I have no idea if they are still as good of a mower. I've seen where many mower manufacturers advertise never change the oil, just top off. I would be unable do that.
Also, you mention having trouble getting the pan off and out. A common issue is for people to screw up the shift solenoids and/or wiring for them. As mentioned above make sure you got the old filter seal out and the new filter seal in place and the filter inserted all the way. Also make sure you got the correct filter for your pan. If the new seal is not seated properly, it can suck air at that point too Here's a pic of the seal in place, it's in the process of being removed. **Edit: It won't let me link to the picture
