Default Lawn Mower Help

I recently bought a new home (at least new to me!). The previous owner
is deceased and as part of the sale I acquired his riding lawn mower.
It is a Sentinel E3912000 12 HP, 39 Inch cut. So far I have not been
able to find a owners manual for this mower. I was told it was made by
Murray but their website offers no leads. I searched the web and only
thing I could find was one usenet message also looking for a owners
manual. I emailed the sender of the message and the message came back
right away as "user unknown"
Any help would be appreciated!

Butch

kd,

I bet just about any lawn mower repair shop will recognize this mower as
an MTD or a Murray. Take it down, get it serviced, and have them order a
manual. I 'm assuming that you've already failed to find the manufacturer's
tag that would be on the chassis somewhere.

Dave,
Yes I did find the tag. Mower was manufactured by Noma Outdoors
Products which is no longer in business. I believe Murray bought them
out. Will check with the repair shop on the manual as I have already
servied it. thanks for the reply.

Hi all,
Thanks for the replies. So far no luck finding a manual. Yesterday my
brother in law pulled the head and cleaned carbon off piston and valves
and moved valves manually and it now starts and he said the motor
sounds very good (he has been a mechanic for over 50 years.).
So for about 75 dollars in parts (air filter, fuel filter, battery,
ignition swith, oil and spark plug) and 25 dollars for the mower - I
now have a riding lawn mower. Will keep looking for manual and let all
know if I find one.
Butch
