Just remember. You can't have just one large frame. They need others to talk to.

Ok had some time to look at the new girl while my daughter was napping and made a short list since it does start and move and for 250 i figure i didn't do bad since part machines go for 500-800 in this area and nice machine for 1200.

 

It tends to back fire while starting but does start and run and only does it then on rapid deceleration of the throttle.

It does not drip but with the engine off i noticed the mouth of the carb is wet.

The fuel pump is wet.

No brakes.

Now my big issue is that the threads for the exhaust in the head are stripped.

I use to say the same about vintage sleds but found a garage I rent for $30 a month and swap winter summer stuff around. Got to keep them covered and my wife likes it better than alternative. LOL

If it was my house it would be no worries cause it would be mine and a garage in this area even for a single bay would be 250-300 a month.

 

But in other new haven't really messed with the large frame at all with no attachments i could use i'm in no rush. But i was in the shed yesterday and noticed with the selector in park there in a leak at the parking paw. So i cleaned it and set it in drive and today there was no leak in this a hard seal to replace plus does anyone know where to get one.

 

Also anyone in the northeast have a front blade with manual adjust that may want to get rid of?

The parking paw is a simple fix.   Remove fluid from the rear end then unhook the rod going to the paw from the paw.  The take a wrench and take the unit holding the paw off push the paw out and replace the two o'rings.
