Scott,
Picked your tractor up for you today, with the help of jdelfjunior and ckjakline (fellow members), and it is now at my place. As per your request, here are additional pictures of your recent purchase. If you need anything additional, let me know.

Troy

More than likely a 1967 to 68 model. Someone cut that hole on the left side frame above the footrest. You need to order a Bolens twist-lock throttle cable assembly from bhts, as they are identical to the OE usd by Bush Hog. Thre should be a 45 degree elbow in place of the 90 that is on the exhaust, then a pepper-pot muffler. Your muffler heat shield is gone of course, but simple to make, and I can get you a pattern. The rear lift "spring assist" is also missing, as is the complete PTO clutch, but as I already told you, a Cub Cadet clutch can be substituted. I can't see from the pics if the mule drive pulleys are underneath or not. That seat cushion looks to be for an old Massey farm tractor, possibly for a MF35 or MF50, so you might sell that & help fund having a good new seat built. This is about all I can tell from the pics.
All in all, a great project tractor. I see a restored tractor in the future!

Scott,
You're also going to have to repair or adjust the steering linkage as well. When we were trying to get the tractor turned around, we found that the steering doesn't turn much in either direction. Sometime when you try turning a little harder, the hood goes up and down. Not sure what the deal is there. I'll check for the mule drive tomorrow when I get home, and let you know if they are there. If I can help out with anything else, let me know. As long as I have your permission, I'll look for, or check for certain things that may be in question. Just keep in mind, that I'm a John Deere man, so these other colored tractors are a little new to me.

Troy
Any thing you are willing to do is fine with me

I just appreciate all your help.

Right now you are more of an expert than me on these bush hogs.

I was aware there was some steering issues.

Maybe so George, but at least it's only temporary and eventually going home. The neighbors are already starting to talk, and wanting to know if I'm converting to red. LOL
I already have one red machine, and don't want another. At least my red machine is in the shed where nobody can see it!

If you're reading this Scott, I'm just kidding of course. The Bush Hog can stay here as long as needed. No hurry!

Scott,

The motor type is TRA-10D, and it does not turn over by hand. I tried turning the flywheel by hand, and it feels tight. I noticed this tractor has a big transmission, so is it possible that it is keeping me form turning the motor over? I can't imagine that it would, but thought I'd ask anyway. I hope you aren't going to have problems, or ended up with a lemon.

Troy

Sorry, I didn't realize Caleb changed the login.
