Well guys, here are the pictures I promised. The first 4 pictures are just as it came off the truck. The 5th one shows the rear end where the hitch will live if I ever find one, and the last one is after I removed the mower deck and all associated belts and pulleys.

Enjoy,
Harry

Nice find Harry. Glad it's what you wanted/needed. BTW I don't think I've ever seen a bald front turf tire. LOTS of left turns I guess. LOL

I think that's a fine looking tractor. You'll have fun with that one.

Nice JD. Looks ready for work.


Thanks, Dave. It has a few minor things to work on, but nothing major. I need to put new motor mounts on it, and tires. I still need a lift system of some sort and or course, a plow. (dirt plow, that is.)

Oh, and by the way, if any of you guys need a good mower deck or know of someone who does, I'd sell mine, or maybe trade it for other parts I need. The deck that came with mine is a 47 and has new blades and belts. The bearings all seem good except the main drive pulley needs replacing.

I think you did good Harry. As for the deck you can always put it on ebay or craigslist and the money you get from it you can use towards a nice brinly plow. You can usually get a nice used Brinly plow for around $125.

I think all of our tractors unless they have been restored have little quirks or bugs that need worked out.
