I asked the neighbor across the street if he knew of any zero-turns around. Said his SIL had one sitting in the back of his property. Went and looked at it, couldn't find any spark plugs in the engine. Anyway we struck a deal and I am now the proud owner of this:

I have gotten it to turn over, drained the old fuel. Tomorrow, I'll get new fuel. What else do I need to do to get it started. It seem the glow plugs are working and the owner said they had to be used when it was started for the first time each day. It has 5408 hours on the clock and is a Mitsubishi diesel. I think around 25 HP. Has good antifreeze in the radiator, but the water pump is a bit hard to turn. I thought the alternator was froze up, but I guess the belt was just stuck to the pullies. I will need the adjustment bracket for it, that is broken.

It's a Toro Groundsmaster 322-D. He said the transaxle was out of it, but there is a spare one he had picked up. When I was draining the old fuel, I found the hydraulic filter very loose. Wonder if it's just out of fluid?

I got it mainly for the engine. Can you say FF 22-D? Gotta read some in the manual, see if I can find a wiring diagram as mice have chewed the wiring all up. It has sat for 2 years in under some trees, one tire has sidewall leaks. It will need a tube. But it's a 23-8.50x12. I think a Cub wheel would fit it for now. Has power steering!!!

I have faith in you Kenny.

You'll get it going. It looks good visually. A few leaves and crap to

clean off. If you got it for the right price, I'd call it a good score.

Looking forward to seeing what you do with it.

Kenny, I bet since you have a wiring issue you aren't getting fuel if it has an electric shutoff solenoid.  You may also have to get the lines cleaned out if it has sat for a while.  Diesel does go bad too!

Willie has it all figured out.  :thumbs:

I've been trying to read the manual. I think it does have the shutoff solenoid. Got a lot of wires chewed into by mice, so have to figure that all out.

Sweet find.Heck I would of left the old fuel in it if there wasn't much water in it.Throw a battery in it and crack the injector lines loose and give it a whirl. 

 

 

We paid $300 for our 4 cylinder Continental gas powered GroundsMaster 72 It does not have power steering but it turns really easy any way.It had a steering column like the old Cub Cadets used but slightly longer and beefier.

 

Water pumps are very pricey for the Continental engines.Around $600 through Toro.

 

 

My uncle pressed the old one apart and put new roller bearings in it and found a set of seals somewhere.I forget where he got the stuff.It took him a few days to get it back together but is hasn't leaked a drop in the 6 years we've owned it.

I had about 2 gallons in it, no water!
