Thats what I do when I read all these articles that you guys write. I have a "super 575" that i saved from a junk man.Finding parts around here is tuff to do because there is a junk craze goiung on here that you wouldn't believe. You can't find an old car, lawnmower or anything made out of metal period. I've been looking on line and I guess I just don't know wherte the right places are to look. I rerally need a complete speed changer assy. and a complete reverse assy. Maybe you can point me in the right direction. I love this forum and I've already learnt alot from the people on here. MANY, MANY THANKS. Proud owner of a 917.575135 with a D&B 143302/5025 6hp. All very restorable. :firejumper:

Welcome oldmanskipper to GTtalk Glad you join the site . I didn't have a walk behind until this past spring and now have 3! I'm still learning about them and trying to figure out how to use them correctly ( attachments ) There is a good group of DB people here and maybe one will be able to help you find the parts your looking for , Al

Welcome to GTt oldmanskipper! I am sure you will find the info you need on here.

And as far as the scrapping goes, It is going to get worse I'm afraid. To many people are out of work and scrapping what ever they can just to get by. I sure hope things turn around in this country soon!

Man-O-Man. Where is Ruckersville at. Looks like you have everything I need. How much are you willing to part with. I can't tell if the reverse assy. is complete but I bet it is from looking at the rest. Where did you find such a complete tractor? O.K. I'm calming down. didn't mean to sound greedy or anything but I almost vcried when I saw those pic's. Let me know for real what you might be willing to do. Regardless, thanks for the answer and thanks to all of you for the warm welcome!!

welcome to the group, you will find a whole section here of differnt kinds of two-wheeled models. There are lots of pictures to go with them also.

DB are some of the easest tractors to find as they were mass produced, and mass marketed for Sears. Complete ones show up on ebay all the time, and many are on craigslist. You just have to be on the look out for handle bars poking up though the weeds.

Welcome! The junk craze you talk about is going on here as well. All kinds of people advertising and just driving around asking if they can pay you for any junk metal you have. I'm afraid a lot of good salvagable equipment is going to the scrap heap. Good luck with your projects! I recently picked up a Troy bilt Jr tiller at a yard sale. I think I'm getting hooked on the 2 wheelers as well.

Lots of people here just going around taking the iron . You cant leave any thing sitting out side that small enough to carry off or not chained down. Starting to be a real problem.

Stealing stuff from peoples property is a good way to get shot at in some parts. It's probably happening here too.
