Decided to wash the 900 I got not too long ago. I know it's not the best looking 900 out there, but it looks better than it did before. Still needs a few kinks worked out of it. It bogs a bit going uphill in 3rd high and I need a new pulley for the mower deck. It's gettin there :thumbs:

Nice looking 900!
Its getting harder and harder to find ones in original condition like that, I see you even have the hard to find Steering wheel cap!!!


How big of an incline are we talking about when in 3rd gear?

Thanks guys. I do have the steering wheel cap, unfortunatley I cracked it from leaning on it :wallbanging: . Gotta fix that. The inclines are pretty steep, but not as much that it should be bogging. I just cleaned and rebuilt the carb a couple weeks ago so I'm hoping it just needs adjusting.

Does that usually work "picking" GT's like that? Do you find some for sale just driving around or you find ones parked on the side of houses and go up and knock on their door to see if they want to sell it?

I know what you mean though. I've done some digging on Craigslist and eBay and seem to come up with a lot of neat old garden tractor stuff out in CT. Seems odd to me, but meh... You don't really think of CT as a huge old tractor owning population. Stereotypically, you think like down south or PA at least... The south of the north!
