Welcome to GTT, Ubernoob.

Looks fairly decent. Not all smashed up, just weathered.

Great machine you found yourself there. You'll probably run into lots

of rusted bolts by the looks of things. Stock up on PB Blaster.

As for the lights, I'd guess someone changed the ignition switch.

Keep us posted.

Thanks for the pics! 

 

Question for those knowledgeable...this is the second tractor I've seen recently with Snapper/Massey crossover stickers.  For instance, the hood decals say "snapper", but the design of the decal is definitely Massey.  Across the back, again, the word says "snapper", but the sticker design extended past the rear tail lights in a rectangular fashion is far different from the traditional rounded snapper decal centered between the taillights.  Does anyone have any information on this?  Were a few of these released during transition years between the Snapper/Massey badging?  I'd really like to get a few sets of these decals if they were available!!!

Is there a good source for used parts? I'm missing a few, like the rear pto drive shaft and the handle to operate the hydraulics for the 3 pt, Ebay doesn't have what I'm looking for.

You need a few more posts to post a 'Wanted' ad. I would go for the sponsors!

Well, today I worked on wiring, I hooked the ignition interlock switches back up (rear pto, transmission pedal, front pto). Cranked it over to check and make sure it all works. Waiting for a new carb, tires, and a fuel tank grommet to come in the mail.

Well, I got the carb and fuel tank grommet in the mail, I put them on the Snapper, and after a bit of priming the fuel system, it fired up! I'm still tuning the carb, and I'm wondering how I can find a tach to set the idle and top speed for the engine; Once I get the tires I can get it moving again, the last time I had it running the carb float bowl was rusted through and I had a bit of a fuel leak :flamethrower: and the tires were cracked and leaking.

Good to hear you got it running again.

Get yourself one of these  tachs. They work great.

For some reason the "I AGREE" icon isn't showing up on the list... anyway, I have one of these tachs and really like it.  You just need a reflective "spot" on the shaft or spinning item.  You get some reflective tape with the tach, but a white adhesive dot works well, or any white or foil that you can stick on.

 

Nice thing is, the tach can also be used to check the rpms of electric motors, drive shafts, etc.

What kind of air filter do these tractors use? Mine didn't come with an air cleaner, I found one on ebay, but not sure what filter to buy.

:welcome: to the forum glad to have you. Looks like a great restore project. Patience is the key for looking for parts. It amazes me while looking for days finding nothing then all of a sudden you find it. Glad to hear you got it running. As mentioned check with the sponsers, they don't always post what they have.
