Plan on picking tractor up tomorrow after I  get hay, but remembered I had these in the Jeep.

Here are the covers of the 4 manuals/pamphlets I got with it.

Got 'er home today. Of course I had to tinker some.

Pulled plastic tank off ( I so love plastic tanks) cleaned it out some. Threw charger on battery. Checked the oil level. Pulled plug and spun by hand, motor was free and had some compression. PO said it would  not turn over.

I think Glen Pettit hit the nail, I pulled mower lever up and motor turned over fine. Looks like clutch safety rusted shut and someone by passed it, same with seat safety. Anyway, had spark with plug out, but it's weak and intermittent. I tried some starting fluid, but nothing. Going to remove all wire connections and clean/re-gap points and see what happens. I think I'm close, I hope it doesn't smoke too bad. Plug was black, but not full of oil build up I would think with oil burning.

Sorry no pics. I'll get some soon.

You have a very good GT for the money you have invested.

The B-80 is a nice GT......I have one also.

MUWAHAHAHAHAHAH.....It's Aliiiive, IT'S ALIVE!!!!!

:love:  :love: 


Best $75 I've spent in a while.

Put a good battery in it, sanded/cleaned/re-gapped point, and she fired right up. Have to say, no problems with mosquitos for a bit. The longer it ran though, the more she cleaned up. I'm thinking if I run some MMM through a few tanks of gas and see what happens. My puller buddy is already wanting to help rebuild it, if I let him lose, I will be pulling by the end of summer haha.

I already have an idea of what I want to do as far as restore. Not going to be factory style restore, going to go a little out of the box, but that maybe winter project, it will go on back burner for a while.

I have no idea how I missed this thread. Really nice GT!

"Best $75 I've spent in a while". Is a sentence that is one of the bigger under statements I've read lately...

Notice the mower description on the front of the tractor manual and on the front of the mower manual.

1-0622 is a rear discharge deck

1-0722 is a side discharge deck.
