I found a 1614 at a small engine repair shop. It is in sad shape, but looks to be mostly complete. It has a mower deck and 3 point hitch. Seller says it will run and drive. It has the dual transmission.

Am I correct that not all tractors had the dual transmission? If so how can I tell if it single or dual?

Original owner left it behind because he was not willing to pay for a service bill. He is asking $900. Didnt see to bad, but not cheap ehough for me to open my wallet on the spot. Thoughts? I usually dont see these tractors under $1250+ so I am wondering if I should go back.

Without a picture I am not going to say much on price. Does the seller mean it will run now, or need work?

If it has a dual tranny then it will simply have two shifters. There will be one that goes straight up, and one behind that, which bends in an L shape. No, not all of them had the dual trannies.

Sorry I have no pictures, but the tractor is restorable. Not rusty, but will need tires, muffler, and paint. I believe seller said it was an early 80's model. Did these still have a steal seat pan with no padding? It had a home made seat with silicone as a padding.

If it needs tires and is $900 the price is too high.

The rear tires tend to be a little "pricey".

That is what I was afraid of. I was looking for tires lastnight. What is the proper size for these?

The 8-16's can be had from miller tire for about $125 a piece. I thought the tire on that thing was bigger. That's the same size my Speedex has on the rear.

7-16 will fit also and are a little cheaper. Dual transmissions and a 3 pt hitch are a plus.
