I put the carb and air cleaner that I got from Jestin LeClair at tubeframes.com on the 800, and it roared to life :dancingbanana:

The key switch isn't working, so I'm using a toggle switch on the dash (I'm guessing that it was originally for lights) as an on/off for the mag.

The other problem is that Jestin painted the carb, and the throttle linkage is STIFF! So stiff that I can't get it to move with the tractor's linkage. Right now I'm just opening it by hand and not running at anything in the way of higher RPMs. It shifts and runs in all gears, and the brakes work as well.

I'll be taking it to the Lagrange Engine Club's annual show in Wellington, OH on the 17th-19th of next month. And will have it, the front blade, and the dump attachment up for sale. I was at the Lorain County Fair there earlier today, and talked to a few of the LEC guys, one of which was a CUB CADET collector and he "expressed interest" (i.e. started drooling) when I mentioned the dump attachment. He seems to think that it would fit on a Brinley adapter that he has on one of his Cubs. I'm thinking that the 6-way blade for my Cub Cadet LTX1045 may be in my future.

That's not a bad looking 800.
