Found this on an area classified ad. Got the Manuals, tiller, mower deck with newer blades,tire chains, plow blade & frame. The tiller is attached (one tine is off, with it, but off) the tiller lift needs a new key, engine is free, one tire is FLAT. We settled on $140.

Oh, and it came with a collection of free mice. One ran over my shoe while I was trying to take these pictures.

WOW, that is quite a tractor for the money.
I noticed your driver had to get up and help unload.

Just the AC emblem would cause me to get my wallet out.
Yes I have it bad.

You got a good deal, basically bought the tiller and got the rest for free and the mice, that just puts the icing on the cake LOL. Can't wait to see how your project turns out :D

Well, I'll have to start another thread then. I have a Garage to clean out and a MF10 to do 1st. My son wants to plow next year, guess it can wait a while. The guy hinted he was a week or two from hauling it in for scrap. Kinda glad I called.

I've got an AC B-10 with the tiller deck and mower deck. The tiller on that thing is a monster - just a great tool.

I know I said I wasn't gonna work on it, but had to clean the mice out... I put in another battery & turned it over... no spark. Filed the new looking points & got a VERY weak spark. Just enough to see if the end of the wire was touching the head. I could hold onto the end of the wire. Changed the condenser, still weak. Anyone have any ideas? I've heard the coils are suspect on these larger Briggs engines... a friend said rust on the magnet/pickup... Either way, the engine has to come out to work on it due to the way it's mounted.

I am no help with any special info on the Briggs. Do you have the point gap set? I know it affects timing more so then spark but I have seen it cause a weak spark also. I know you said you filed the points, are they completely clean on the faces now? Do you have a spare coil to test with?

I did set the gap, It ended up at 18 thou, in order to change the coil, I have to pull the motor. Unit is shaft-driven from the flywheel side. It'll make it harder to work on, but the tractor is solid. It'll be worth it eventually.
