The freebie part is great, but the fact that he delivered it too, made

it a real sweet day.

It had been sitting in his shed for 12 years. Last weekend he asked if I

wanted it. SURE.

 I checked oil, spark, looked in the gas tank which was spotless, I put some gas

in, and a splash down the spark plug hole, cranked it over for 15-20 seconds, and

it fired and ran. No smoke, or engine noises. Sweet. I'll have to pull and clean the carb

as it needs full choke to run, but I took it for a spin through the gears. I haven't

engaged the deck yet, but the blades turn free, and everything there seems fine.

I think I'll just clean it up, give it a quick look over, light sand the battleship

grey, spray bomb that with flint metallic grey, and use it to mow around all the

trees. I guess I'll get a new seat for it too. I suppose I should name it Bill, after

the donor.

Will that sure is a clean little 7 you got there and it's even better that it was given to you.  Must be a good friend indeed to do that for you.

Very nice 7 Will. That one is in excellent shape. Nose piece and dash look unscathed, which is rare.

Thanks guys.

Our lawn should be due for it's first cut by the end of the week.

If I get at this tomorrow night, I should be able to use it for that.

Neat and Lucky Guy!  NAME your tractor "Bill"?? Ewwww!  I can't stand when people have names for cars, trucks, mowers and rides!  Can't get THAT personal with them!

Nice looking 7. Glad it was given a chance for a decent home.
Be a nice mower for you.

Bill it is.
