No problem. I just fixed that for you. Glad you got it running again. No smoke is always a good thing!

That's Awesome!!! Can't go wrong for $40!!!!!! I wish you luck with it. It looks to be in great shape. Just be careful GT's can become addicting!! LOL

Good news, glad to hear it's a runner!

You will love the cut, deck floating with the axle like it does.
Great deal and a very good looking tractor. Let us know when you're done mowing and how it works.
