Just picked up a Snapper 1650 that's been sitting in a friend's back yard for the last ten years. Interested in bringing it back to full working order and thought joining this community could be a big help. Haven't worked on a lawn tractor before so I'm confident I'll have plenty of questions. Been looking around the site and it looks like a lot of folks have been down this road already- thus I'll try not to ask to many of the same questions that have already been answered. Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the site Snap1650. As Daniel said there are quite a few around that can help you. Do you have any kind of mechanical background?

Welcome to the forum! Sounds like you have some volunteers for getting it fixed. There's help on posting pics in my signature. Those are a must have around these parts!

Welcome SNAP1650. I have a 1600A. They are great tractors and you will love it. The usual problems are: water in the fuel system, mice in the covers, and the points and condenser need replacing. The manuals are available for downloading here. When asking questions, pictures help. The little rubber gromet at the bottom of the gas tank usually only lasts 5 years so check it. NAPA has new ones for about $2.75.
Good Luck
