I went on a road trip the other day, to gather up the Ford LGT165 I'd made a deal on a
while ago.
I just couldn't resist, so I made a bit of a detour, and also picked up this Moto Mower.
Model 6024 Type 400 Ser# K 10480
It fired right up, after I changed the plug, fuel line, filter, and dropped at battery in it.
Engine is tight, and runs smooth. Tranny is smooth, and steering has very little play.
Previous owner, looked after this girl, and only parted with it, because he's moving.
My original intention, was to keep it as a parts machine, for my Massey Executives, but
it's in way too good shape, to become a donor. It came with a deck, but it needs a fair
bit of reworkin.
I think I'll just park it next to it's cousins in Massey Hall.

Way to go Will. Sure is a good looking tractor. Always great to hear of a tractor going to a good home.

The Ford, is still on the trailer, and is going to need a whole lot of TLC. I might have a look at it this afternoon.
I'll snap some pictures today, if I get at it.
