Looks pretty good Chris, Hydros are nice to drive, forward backward so easy.
Did you get all the brackets for the mower and snow thrower?
Good Stuff

Not sure yet. Need to look at the parts books.I do know the deck is all apart and pieces are in a box,he said it needed bearings in a spindle, but I also notice it is missing all the spindle pulleys.The blower looks like it needs something else on it to mount up, and it is missing the shoot angle rod(seems like all blowers loose that part) I'll research tonight and work on it tomorrow. It is so windy and cold here today and tonight we are going to be in the 20's.

If you happen to know of someone with parts let me know. List is getting longer already LOL. Steering wheel, headlights, headlight bezel,carb, voltage regulator,plastic dash,mower deck spindle pulleys.
I will rig up a carb 1st to see if the engine is any good. If not, I will do a repower with a 12hp Kohler that I have. Has anyone ever put a Kohler in a MF yet?

Sometimes its best to buy a second parts tractor and make the best 1 of the 2.

Chris, That looks like an even better deal than the original photos showed. I've never been close to a MF ( well GT size), it looks pretty stout. What is the little round black knob on the tunnel flat between the foot rests for? It reminds me of a creeper on a Cub. I tried to figure it from the bottom side photo, but my eyes are just too tired to follow the details...

That would be the parking brake.
You push the brake pedal down, move the knob, release the pedal, and the tractors brakes are on, it also disengages the Hydro drive.
