Not exactly a garden tractor, but i couldnt pass it up. its a 1966 MTD Lawnflite 4hp and it is in all original condition. Cleaned the carb and tank and she runs like a top. I am looking for a parts manual for it. model #360131 serial#3557239. had to take a pic along side my 72 MTD Wizard.DSCF5962.JPG DSCF5963.JPG PG]

That is a cute little turkey, no doubt about that. 

 

What engine is tucked underneath that hood?  Turbo diesel?

Very cool and looks to be in incredible shape.

 

So I tried your model number in MTD's manuals site and of course it doesn't come up. Thinking about the number though, I wondered if they reversed their normal format as models starting with 13 would be a riding mower / lawn tractor with 1 being the year ('71 or '81) and 360 being a model number of a smallish rider.  Sure enough searching for model numbers starting with 131 does bring up a model 131360.  It's similar but just a bit bigger and has an opening hood.  Dead end.  But..... then I noticed a model 340.  Opening the manual for that one sure as heck looks like yours.

Get it at:  http://manuals.mtdpr...m/mtd/Public.do

Enter 131340 as the model number and any number (I use "5") for the serial.

 

Are you sure about the year being 1966?  They don't show any riders for then.  I'm not sure how far back their online manuals go but I was just checking for a '66 650 garden tractor.  They didn't have the manual available but they did at least show it.  Did the numbers on the engine confirm the year?

Can you imagine any adult man being able to fit on that??? Do you stick your legs out over the hood?
