WOW, just wow!!!! That tractor is gorgeous especially if it's all original,...and all the extra's geesshhh!!!
and a perfect dash and nose cone
I wished I had the money, I would be loading up the trailer to come pick it up from you righ now, and my sons wants the minibike!
You found a gem right there my friend! Since you don't plan to keep it, I would winter it, get it running, and sell it in spring for no less than $800, I would ask even more. That's low hours on an Onan that's been well serviced, it should be a BG/MS motor.
Cute little oil drain, good idea, but if I drained the oil, I would take it off and put a square plug in it, just me though.
As said, these are very similar to the Kohlers, battery/coil ignition. Should have a hot going to that side of coil, maybe ignition switch went bad so they bypassed.
I saw the fuel line lying there, wondered about it. Mystery to why they had it off??? I see that the rear panel with the little red light is removed, I'm wondering if he pulled gas tank to replace fuel line and just never finished?
I haven't got into one, but I think carb is part of intake or you have to remove intake to be able to remove the entire carb. I know you can pull top, but intake has to come off for the rest? The experts will have to chime in on that one.
It also looks like there was an old style 2 bolt 3 point bolted to the rear plate but there is no lower arms pins in the frame so I'm wondering what was bolted on back there?
Yes, there are guys that make the reproduction stickers so they are out there.
I think "click it and stick it" has all the sears patterns.
You got a good grab there, I would have to sell a couple of mine if that one came in the stable.
