Well I just got back. I brought it to my dads (going to let him have it) I spent about an hour checking things over. Mechanically it seems excellent. Electrically not so good lol. Even without looking at a schematic I saw a lot of things hooked up wrong. But it will be an easy fix, I will just rewire everything.

 

I cut all the wiring out, turned the engine over by hand with the plug out ( to check valve movement)

then changed the oil and cranked it up with a battery and jumper cables just to see if there was spark and see if it felt like it had compression. Cranks nice, but a weak to no spark (intermittent). the wires going to the stator are in bad shape so it is possible the kill wire is grounding out. Saturday I will pull the flywheel and go from there. If it is the SSI I have one I can use goes for the stator.

 I brought the steering sector gear and shaft back to my house, as the shaft needs to be welded up, or I'll find a replacement.

 The model is a 917.25060 and the Tecumseh HH100 is a 143.629012 serial 1305E.

I'll try to figure the year of them soon, unless someone finds out be for I do lol.

 

Here are the pictures. It came with a deck, snow blower and a dozer blade also.

Looks like a good deal to me. Hope you can get wiring figured out easily. At first I thought it had an offset front axle, but I guess you pulled the axle pin.

The wiring on these is pretty straight forward. And yes the axle was removed.

That's a great deal. The wiring harness is simple but hard to get to the voltage regulator. I wish I got that good of a deal on my sub 12's, and a snow blower instead of a lawn sweeper with them.
