Here's a few pictures after the initial attempt at refurb - sanded and painted some of the major pieces (decals I just taped off - kinda like that they are the originals).

 

New seat, new rear tires (ouch...), redid all the wiring (and yes I removed all of the interlocks), new choke cable.  It's got no lights on the front (previous owner riveted blanks across.....grrrr) so any info on replacing those would be good.

 

So how about attachments ?  I think my step-father has a mower deck for it but would love to see what else is out there now that I have a functional machine.

Thanks duct tape (by the way, love your user name) - so does that mean that there is always tension on that pulley (i.e. it is engaged all the time )?

This is the bar you need, it 23 inches long, with a bend in it. The curve is about 3 inches in it.

Yes it's always engaged, but if you park lever is right then your pedal will be locked so you won't move, mine is not a i always hit it when I get on and it try's to take off. How hard is you foot pedal, mine seems why to sensitive the slightest touch and your off in a hurry,same with backing up

Seems like there is no end to attachments for these, I've seen loaders backhoes reel mowers, anything you'd use on a farm, someone made a smaller version for these tractors and others like them. I have a hard time finding them but I see more stuff on the other side of mi than my area. I drove5-1/2 hours to get my 1225 and attachments.

The drive idler is meant to be engaged at all times with that loose spring in your one picture. It connects to a cotter pin attached to the frame and the other end goes to the hole in the idler arm.

 

Looks like someone modified the idler lockout system to aide in free wheeling,

Here's a manual describing how the idler lockout works and what it looks like:

Do you have the brackets for lights? If so I do stock new headlights for these as well as many other parts, if you need something let me know.

Dr. Bolens - no brackets for lights, everything apparently removed by PO.  Do you have bracket that would connect to snow blower to connect to the tractor ?

 

Anyone have any other attachments for sale ?
