You will love having turning brakes!  Looks like the pedals are in the "park lock" position??

Good Looking 318, if the gas cap is missing or has the gauge lens is gone, you will need to drain the tank as it will have water in it. I know this from experience. :wallbanging:

I would remove & flush the tank regardless.  No telling what history has been left inside that tank.

Great buy!! As for the Grill, mine is off more than it's on. It's just in the way when your mounting snowblowers or adjusting the clutch.

I got it home, the only that i can see messing is the front grill and the mule gaurd. Havn't checked to see what year it is yet. Let the fun begin!
