A few years ago one of my Dad's buddies dropped off a tiny tractor at my house. I took it all apart then I stopped and started taking apart my speedex, which I am now putting back together. Just before school started this year I picked up on the toro were I left off. I got all the parts sanded and painted but the engine needs a coil and/or a condenser, it has no spark. Its all together other then the engine. I dont have many pics of it, the only ones I have are after it was all taken apart. I piled it together to take some pics a while ago. I put a 5 gallon can in some of the pics for a size reference. I will uncover it to get some pics of it all painted in the next few days.

It pretty much is done. Its all painted and together other then the engine. The engine needs a coil and/or a condenser. then I just have to put it in.

I finally got those pics. Its pretty dusty even though I have it under a cover in the garage. I painted it back to original colors, mostly. All the parts not on the tractor are on the seat. Steering components and engine and it will be together. Its all original except the seat, when I got it it didn't have a seat. In the woods about 1/2 mile back there is a little wizard about the same size as this. So, one day I decided to get a ratchet and a pipe for leverage to go take the seat off of it. It came off pretty easy and the bolt holding it on didn't even brake!

Thanks guys! I will definitely take a video once I get it going!

The engine model number is 130902-0203 its a 5hp briggs. Does anybody have a part number for the coil and condenser? Or know where I could find a number? I will look on the briggs site and let you know if i find anything.
