Got the Speedex from Farmer home today. Chuckbob went and got it in PA for me and Then I went to S.IN to pick it up.  2nd time Chuck has helped me out with a trip to PA for things. Thanks Chuck!  Just so you know, I put are in those front tires and they seem to be staying up. Pushes much better now! Tried to wash some of Moss off with hose, but it isn't coming off w/out rubbing I guess.  Here's some pix of the tractor, minus the engine. Check out that really large belt guard. not sure what goes over opening on side, mesh or solid metal cover?? Pail of parts and pulleys, thinking maybe the deck hanging parts and belt pulleys etc. Not sure yet. This tractor has a belt tightener for clutch and engine stays put. A peerelss type rear-end and not the big bull-gear style like many Speedex have. It even has Floor boards, must be deluxe!  Can't wait to get into it and figure out the systems on it. The deck on this thing has some quality welding, timed gear boxes that seem to move OK and a few rust holes to fix if I even use it. Chuck......the rear lift was moving after I washed it. Not sure if ride shook it loose, or if water got in joints and was lubing them, ha!
