Now this tractor is not ready to work.I just wanted to try it out.It needs all the normal maintenance after sitting out for a few years but in spite of frozen throttle and choke cables it will start up and drive.So I eased it out of the garage and dropped the plow....It pushed like a tank!...then died and wouldn't start.So I thought I would pull the gummed up carb and give it a quick cleaning,after getting it back on that didn't work,still no start...So sitting on the seat I sprayed carb cleaner from the can into the carb to keep it running long enough to drive back into the garage. I pulled the gas line off the carb coming from the pump and spin the engine.No gas.The fuel pump is clogged or just bad is my first thought...but I pulled the metal inlet line on the sediment bowl...gas coming thru the line good...so I check the sediment lines and filter. Ah hah! Its plugged and that makes me happy ! ( the pump just may be fine ). I pull the sediment bowl filter and valve off and give them a good cleaning,then blow out the filter,lines and shutoff parts with compressed air.I put it back together,reach for the primer arm on the pump and start pumping it. I can see the gas flow thru as it fills the lines (and comes out the end of the fuel line by the carb,oops forgot to put the line back on the carb ). I put the line back on the carb and pump the primer more until the float bowl is full.Now for the test. Choke it,crank it,it fires right up,off with the choke and the old Kohler is running like a champ ! I am both impressed and happy. I have plans to do some resto work to this tractor hopefully this year.

It's a 1969 by the engine and I believe the only year this model was built. It is a very hard to find model and info on them is very very slim. There is a couple of other threads here about this one and my other one. My other one is serial number 6 off the line which I think is very cool.

Those old Kohlers are a great engine and that AMF is a really nice GT. I'm sure it will push a lot of snow with those weights on it.

They were built by AMF. AMF also built Massey Ferguson lawn and garden tractors for several years.
