I've got a David Bradley here that came along on a deal recently. It is not exactly my first by any means, but I am not an expert and I know there are a couple here for ol' David.
This machine is a 917-57561. Series 262. Thanks to Amigatec's informative website, I learned it is a Super Power.
The pictures are usually terrible. I don't know what I was drinking that did it, but...
The good news is that it is implement heavy. The cultivator is on it, while it has a sickle bar mower, plow, and a lawn roller.
The bad news is that it is supposed to have a Continental AU8 engine. I am lacking that. I have a Tecumseh H50 on the ship, 143-695032.
The second bad news is that it is lacking the hood, so it is missing all its pride!
My first question is whether anyone knows if that engine is a Sears replacement for the original Continental. If so, I would be fine to leave it, unless someone has a good Continental lying around to sell. They aren't cheap to find, from what I hear.
Once I know whether the engine is Sear's drop in replacement, it would help me decide what belt I need.
The second question is that I need a hood! Does anyone near me have a good hood they would like to part with to make David complete?
Thanks for anyone's help.
