I finally got a pennsylvania panzer. It is a T75. I brought it home last night
in my minivan. I went over it this morning and after checking everything along with engine
oil I tried to start it. It would fire with starting fluied but was not getting gas. I removed the carb
and it was caked full of varnish. ( old fuel harden ) After a few hours of disassembly and
cleaning I reinstalled carb and a few cranks of the starter and it started right up. I drove it around
a little and it was great. It does have a broken motor mount where mower pulleys are.
Any info from anyone would be great. Thanks

Great find FX, mower deck look's good to, I'd check Dandy Sales for the motor mount plate, there is a link here somewheres...and the grease on the frame keeps it from rusting like mine does !!!! Enjoy and good luck with it ........

Nice , you will never let this tractor go as I will not mine after the first drive. Any questions you may have PM me and I'll try to help. I just finished completely restoring a T75 front to back.

Welcome to GTtalk! And congrats! That is a very cool little tractor. You got the bonus feature, electric start. My T75 is a pull start. They are fun to play around on. And you got a mower deck with yours. Very nice. The fact that runs is a bonus too!

If you want a snow blade for yours, there is one on ebay right now. It is about 50 miles from me. It ends in a day or so.

I added a pic of mine from the night I brought it home after I bought it. Mine runs good, I have pushed snow with it, but have not hooked up my mower deck to it yet.

Thanks to all for the info so far. I can't fine model # on engine but I was just looking
at some of the pictures I've taken and it looks like there is a label on the air cleaner
that has been painted over in black. It also looks like there was a decal or label
over the choke/throttle levers. Are these decals still available?

Well I put the panzer to work today hauling dirt from the front yard to the back
yard. It runs great. I love this thing. I need to get a new battery because the
one in it is dated 1994 and for some reason it will not charge. ( ha ha )
I also found the manual starter. Here are a few more pics. I also need
to get a new air cleaner and change the oil and new belt for the starter/generator
and a motor plate. Oh I did use the manual starter because I did get tired of jump
starting it untill I get a new battery. I also found the model # for engine.
170401 151901 81061511. It looks like the engine is not original and was
made in 1981. I need to sell my piece of junk Harley to make room in
my garage for the panzer.
