I sold my 108 and 149 and bought a 2072. I picked it up yesterday.I'm sick so I spent today at the doctor so I haven't got to mess with it much. I gave it a bath and did a quick inventory of things to fix. When I went to look at it the first thing I checked was the rear end bolts. They were all tight but one of the top ones is missing so I mentioned it to the seller and he ended up giving me a parts tractor to make up for the missing bolt. I got the 2072 and the parts frame for $1050 plus it cost me $52 in fuel to pick it up. It runs good doesn't smoke, the hydro is quiet but a little low on fluid. The front tires leak off and I found a pin hole in one. It leaks engine oil a little. It been sitting outside so some of the electrical connections are corroded and it has the black mold on the paint. I haven't run the serial to see what year it is yet. Serial #784969 Model 149730100. The PO had put a 60" deck under it that's pretty solid. Its a little noisy so I bet it needs greasing. Well here are the Pictures Let me know of any other issues to check on this model.

Looks to be in pretty decent shape. It's nice he threw in the parts frame. Congratulations on your deal.
