Hi all, I'm new to the site and new to forums in general, so bear with me here. Just picked up a 5756 with several implements about a month ago and am badly hooked now. I've since found a hood, hood mount and disc harrow. I've restored the cultivator that came with my tractor purchase too. Last week i found a 575135(SUPER 575) that is complete except for motor, belts and a few springs. I've completley dismantled everything except the tranny. Got it cleaned up and put back together. I'm looking for a motor now. If anyone can tell me what length springs to use for the speed changer, reverse mechanism, and reverse control arm I would appreciate it. I'm sure I can get them at the hardware store.

Welcome to the site! Thanks for joining! I like those old walk behinds and I can't wait to see yours when you are finished with it. The cultivator looks great! Thanks for the pics.

:welcome: to GTTalk.

Thanks for the introduction and the pictures. I don't have any big DB's, so absolutely zero help, but hopefully someone has the info you need.

Update on the 575135: Swapped the motor from my 5756 to the 575135 just to check it out. I drove it around the yard :smile1: . It is so cool to take a forgotten gem like this and get it going again. I can hardly wait to get a proper motor mounted and check out the speed changer. Once I get it all back together I plan to use it in the garden while I refurbish the 5756 and then I will put it to work and refurbish the 575135.

Also, I'm still looking for the spring lengths mentioned in my original post. I'm sure I could figure them out but, some help may alleviate the possibility of multiple trips to the store. Thanks y'all!
