I have an old, 1967 I believe, MF7 with the deck and snow thrower. I live out in the IL farm country and it is just too small for my property(6 acres, 3 mowed). It is sitting behind my barn after consuming another set of rings and maybe the cylinder this time. The carb float stuck while I was trying the snow thrower out and you can guess the end results. My questions are:
What can I repower this with?
Is it worth continuing to try and use this or is there someone with a smaller property and more mechanical aptitude than I that will give it a home?(I'm in IT for a reason...)
Thanks to everyone and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

As for remotoring, there are a couple of threads on GTTALK regarding repowering of older tractors. You might take the opportunity to read a couple, some with mixed results, and decide if this is a path you want to go down.
My $.02 is that you'll have substantial dollars in remotoring & you may as well invest it in an older, yet larger unit (watch Craigslist & etc)
and glad to have you here.
