Good deal Kenny, I notice every tractor you get is bigger than the one before, what's next?

That is a great buy Kenny!  No way to go wrong on it being it was the drive issue that parked it & not the engine. Looking forward to video of her purring like a kitten, then roaring & blowing black smoke!   :dancingbanana:

I am wondering if the loose hydraulic filter is the reason. We'll see!

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.

Maybe you need a manual with more pics and less words... :bigrofl:

My Kubota engine I stuffed into my Bush Hog JB had the shutoff solenoid & it fried as soon as I went to start it.  BUT, it also had the manual shutoff arm too, just not used in it's application.  So I just hooked up a shutoff rod to the arm & no need for a new solenoid.  Maybe you'll be lucky enough to have a double system too.

I think it does, Daniel.

I downloaded that last night, Eric. Much easier to understand that one.

 

For all you folks out there, I got this for $300. I'm hoping the hydraulic filter being very loose is why it was parked. I'll get a couple gallons of fresh fuel this morning and check the hydraulic fluid level. It takes 10w30 or 40 for fluid. Got some wiring to repair so I can use the ignition switch for starting it. One drive tire has bad sidewall leaks, but I happen to have 2 23-9.50X12 tires. Tad bigger, but they would work if needed.

I just strolled out to look at something on it and found a whole crate full of goodies the SIL brought over last night, including a parts book. There are some new belts & idler pulleys on top. Will check it all out later.

Kenny, You did very well on this one Ole Buddy. I bet you'll have it up and running in no time. Did you get the spare transaxle?

There has been one of those floating around Newton for a couple years now. I first saw it at J&G Mowers(where I  bought my 318).

They were asking $5,500 for it.

Then I saw it sitting on the corner of a postage stamp sized lawn several blocks away with a for sale sign on it.

Now it's sitting out in front of another house with a lawn about the same size.

My brother was asking me about it the other day. Hmm He don't have any lawn either?

But if he talked real nice I would let him come out and play on my 9 acres with it, if he agreed to let me drive it some too.

That is the way to cover some ground in a hurry.
