Seriously, it won't start.  Turn the key & it's nothing but birds chipping.  It is missing a couple of safety switches, so that'll be my starting point.  

 

Anyway, I figured it was about time I found out why Wheel Horses are so popular with the members.  This one maybe small & older (B165), but it does have a Briggs 16.5 hp Twin that turns by hand, the deck looks solid & the mandrels are not seized.  For $100, how could I say no?  Especially, now that I've sold the DB & the TurfTrac.  The garage seems so ... empty.

The B-165 is a great little Lawn Tractor. It looks to be in pretty good shape. I hope get her running soon and try it out mowing. Good Luck !!

That deck appears to be in great shape.  Likely the deck is worth the $100.

You should have plenty of time to get it to this weekend's big Wheel Horse show....
