I'm so happy today I came across a guy who has over 200 tractors at his shop, only 20 min from my house. I went to pick up a carb for my G 14 and got a complete working H 14:dancingbanana:for $300.00 cad. He will deliver it tomorrow to my house and I will take some pic's and post them. There is 2 problems with it that I know about one is an electrical short that burnt the wiring at the switch and the other is a leak at the rear seal I think. It was sitting for awhile but looks in real good shape and even has the original Bolens embroidered seat in perfect shape. The battery is missing but he put a booster pack on it and it started right up, no smoke. I can't wait to get it home and play!!

I was thinking the same thing Brian. Could spend a good bit of time just looking. Sounds like a nice find on the latest addition to your family awol. Also looking forward to pics.

Yes! I only took the three pic's(behind his back) I didn't want to look to excited when I saw all those toys. When I get to know him better I will ask him if could take more pic's or a video. It's absolutely a beautiful site to see and so close to me!!

Congrats on feeding the Bolens habbit. There are a couple of nice finds just in the pictures you posted. We need something like that only 20 minutes away. I would be even more broke then what I am now LOL
