I recently picked up what I think is a MTD 990 Farm King . It has been repainted blue , but where the paint is flaking off it looks to be an orangish-red and underneath the white headlight panel it appears to have been originally black as was the steering console and tunnel cover areas . I can't find any model or serial tags , and if there are any they've possibly been painted over .
It appears to have a large single cylinder Briggs , but the flywheel shroud tin which would have the engine serial/model numbers is missing . It has a Delco-Remy starter generator , points and coil ignition system , large long plastic fuel tank .
It appears to be a hydro and the engine does turn by hand .
I've done some internet searches and seen them sold under the Penny's , Unico , FarmKing , etc .
Is there anything that will help identify what name or year this MTD model might be ?
This GT needs a lot of TLC and I'm not sure what all is missing . So right now I'm trying to figure out if its worth repairing as there seems to be a few parts missing or if it going to become a parts machine .
