I was going down to Wallmart to pick a cheap printer and noticed an Estate Auction Here sign.So I stopped in and it was almost over.There was a BUNCH of old GTs that got sold.I Lucked into a near Mint 14hp Briggs off of a MTD Fourteen Hundred.And a bunch of other stuff.I had to go back to the house and borrow the neighbors trailer again.
Got the 14hp Briggs,Cub Cadet starter Genny,and a John Deere 112 with a rust free 38" deck and a snow plow that needs some help.The JD is in pieces but everything is there.I hooked up a small gas tank and cleaned and gapped the points on the Briggs engine and gave it a turn with a rope and it fired up almost instantly.No smoke and a nice smooth idle.
The John Deere has a brand new starter on it that looks to never been used.I think that's why is was apart.
I got the original muffler,grill and headlight panel for it.They in a Milk crate with the rest of the small bits.I paid $20 for the whole Lot.I guess no one wanted to stay till the end of the auction.There were very few people there by the time this old JD and stuff came up.They threw all of this up as a LOT.The deck was covered with some old boards in the corner of the barn.I guess no one else noticed it.I'll Get some Pics of the deck and plow tomorrow.I had to leave them on the trailer until I make room for them.
Here's some pics.I have sold the stack off of it for $30.So I'm only down $10 for gas,had to put $20 in the tank.
The JD has a 200 series rear fender on it and gas tank but the tank is full of gravel.I guess he needed more weight on the rear end?
I NEVER get this lucky.I'm marking this one down on the calender.:)
