Hey cub, Welcome to GTtalk, glad you joined us here. If you get the chance, introduce yourself in the member intro forum. I would love to see some photos of your White.

Welcome cub1, there are quite a few here that have MTD's and the Whites seem to be getting more interest lately

  Is your 1855 a silver stripe or a red stripe?

  I would love to see a picture of the cab, never ran across one .

Supposed to be going Sat.  Now he says only runs on choke and one front flat that will hold air to load. AND, he will have to get it uncovered for the pick-up!  Guess must be outside. Hmmm!   Going to get that and a W/horse blade on same trip and same area! That was weird to be close to each other.  Now talking cold and snow showers for That day, but nicer Fri and Sunday sunny.  Wouldn't ya know it.  Keep an eye here for pix. Maybe have to take them on the "Sunny" Sunday! :smilewink:

Left 9:00 am to get tractor. Went thru blowing snow in IN and clearer roads in ILL at border. Tractor ran pretty good and loaded on trailer which was covered in slush. Went and got Whorse blade next and came home, back into blowing snow in IN again and a few slow running drivers each way and snow plow once. Got home 8:30 tonight in dark. Messy, snowy tractor still on trailer till tomorrow, Sunday. Will get some pix then.

Here's some pix of the tractor on trialer all crapped up and dirty. Didn't start and had to drag it off.  Now is running but needs choke to run. Changed the fuel filter, but Don't think it is filling very well. Barely has any gas in it, but hasn't quit yet. Put some Sea Foam in it.

Here's more pix of tractor in garage, kinda cleaned up with spray cleaner. Can't find the model and serial stickers . Did find something under seat that is not readable. See picture. Think those may have been ID stickers?  Note that deck is Huge and sticking out both sides. I've hit door already with one side. Found the numbers on deck and engine. Want to figure year of it.

 

Deck

Model 190 740 190

Ser.  A8W 1565

 

 

Engine, Briggs 20 V-twin

Model 351447

Type 1180-E1

Code  97122411  with  4952 below it.

Late 97 engine, so you figure tractor is 97 too or will it be 98 model?  Wow! Never had one so New before! Will I have to Wax it then?

All the conrols must need oiling/greasing up as they kinda move hard or jerky. Would drive much easier if loosened up.  Creeps a bit in N, so needs adjust there, the brake pedal doesnt seem to apply the brake, yet moves lever to N OK. Should adjust easy. Need to get one front tire or at least tube, has slow leak.

I'd wash it good and see if waxing wouldn't do the trick!

Very nice tractor ! You'll love using it, plenty of power in front of the best hydro / rear combo.
