We'll here it is. 350 bones with the 42" deck and blower. Runs good, it's dirty and grimy but pretty cool. Good deal?

You're going to love how well that cuts grass, if the deck is in good shape. (that's a subtle hint for you to post another pic)

I'll get a pic up tomorrow. Deck is good and solid. All the bolts need to be tightened and the center roller that is under the deck has a bent bar so one roller was locked and dragging. I have it disassembled and am ordering replacement parts. The deck height adjusters are locked up pretty good as we'll so I will soak them in WD40 for a few days and play with them. I need to adjust the PTO clutch and lube whatever needs to be lubed on it. The blades spin but it is loud and rattle right now. I may need some help on the PTO clutch adjustment if the manual is not very clear about the process.

We have the rear sleeve hitch adapter that goes on the lower 2 pivot points for using rear implements like back blades, moldboard plows ect.  PM me if your interested.  Its a brand new reproduction I bought back when I had a 920 Simplicity, but I never used it and dont have that tractor anymore. The adapter needs a new home.  It will be one piece you will need if you want to eventualy use rear ground engaging implements.   Looks like a great buy, Congrats!    Mike and Michele T

That looks pretty nice! Is that paint really as good as it looks in the picture?

It is quite nice given the age and it's all original. I am quite excited about this tractor! It will be great to use and clean up. A bit of a practical restoration will probable take place.

I can already see the I need to replace the oil seal on the rear axle on the left side.  It is dripping a little oil.  I checked on the Manual page and saw an owners/part manual which is great.  Is there a good service/repair manual for these tractors?  I know replaceing the seal(s) wont be too big of a job but I like to have the service manual so that I don't end up messing more up than I fix.

 

Thanks

Thats a good deal. Good Luck with it. You always have to get them up to snuff when you buy used, but still cheaper then new.

Here are a couple pics of the deck.  Not too bad.  The arbors feel good.  It is missing the lower blade gaurd and the middle rollers with the roller shaft and brackets.  All those parts on on the way.
