This is what happens when I play on CL early in the mornings at work............lol It runs pretty good, but needs a little fine tuning on the carb. It has the electric start but someone took the wiring off at some point. Will probably play around with that later on down the road. Two pulls and she is off to the races. She needs a set of tines but for what I gave for her..............I can afford to buy her a new set of "shoes". The price in the ad was a "starting point" and I got it for less than 10% of what a new one costs. A little TLC and she will be good as new! and earning her keep soon.

I got all of the paperwork and manuals on it. I bought it from the 2nd owner and he even had the furrowing attachment to go with it. It was well worth missing my afternoon nap to go get it.

A hardware store 20 miles from me has cases of oil still on the shelves like that. They had the really old lawnboy 2 stroke, too. That got cleaned out as soon as I posted about it on the other forum.

I still have one of the old oil canspouts that cut the triangle out of the top and then you poured.

 

Nice buy. I have a '76 Horse identical to that one and it has been best machine my dad ever bought. It has never failed to start other than the time he and my sister ran low on oil and snap the rod.

i even have a front balde, use it to move dirt and plow snow in the winter, sometimes it's easier to use than the tractor.
