Went to the auction today.  Bought some treasures.  

Not sure what I'm going to do with 78 chair bottoms (some assembly required) with no legs,  They do kind of go with the tables with no legs.  $5

The tractor with mower deck and blade. Electrical issue of some sort, makes more sense to me $30

two lawn sweeps $25 pair

Parts washer $15

Little two wheel snowmobile cart $5

Tandem utility trailer $750

 

Going to be a while before I can look at husqvarna.  Let you know what I find when I do get to work on it.

 

Enjoy the summer

Sorry to hear about your Mom.  That kind of thing is rough.  

 

 BCS He had two machines.  One machine had roto tiller and sickle bar the other one had tiller, sickle bar and mower deck.  both started and ran nicely.

 

Yes I am interested in 1050 parts.  I have one needing transmission, PTO, and a seat.

 

I'm busy next couple weeks getting some work done to the house.  We family in Cochrane so I'm down that way often.

Up date on the Husquavarna It a 18 hp Kohler came with mower deck and a snow blade.  The PO had electrical issues with the head lights fixed that mowed with it. (It has no head lights.) Went in for lunch came out and it wouldn't start. Bought a zero turn.  Pushed the Husquavarna under some trees.  Fast forward several years until his auction were I bought it for $30  Hour meter has 410 hours.

 

I tried turning it by hand but couldn't get a grip on the pulley the engine seemed stuck.  I pulled the plugs poured some diesel down the holes put the plugs back and left it for 6 weeks.

 

​Tonight i decide to drag it up to the garage and see what was up wit it.  I pulled the plugs tried by hand again no go.  I put socket & ratchet on the front crank bolt.  Nothing no luck.  Decided to use 1/2 drive breaker bar.  Still no luck.  Hmm. Tried it the other way I thought I was loosening the bolt.  Whoop the engine was turning.

 

Poured some gear oil in the plug holes turned it over by hand several times.  Found a battery and booster cables hooked up and it turns over.  Whoop Whoop.  Even had spark.  Put the plugs in squirted some gas into the carb.  Few revolutions later it was firing.   :dancingbanana:  :firejumper: It will run if I'm squirting gas down the carb.  Engine sounds good.  

 

Next step is drain the gas tank put fresh gas in see if I can get it to run on its own.  Then change the engine oil see how it works I guess.

The starter seems noisy.  Im  wondering if the starter wasn't stuck engaged and thats why the engine seemed seized.  I put good torque  in one direction and as soon as I tried the other direction it turned.  

 

With  a little TLC I think it will be a good machine.

Tonight I started the tractor again priming it with a squirt can.  There is a light on the dash showing gas pump.  I put gallon or two of gas in the tank primed it with squirt can again.   After about 30 seconds its running on its own.  Driving it around the yard.

 

 Kind of think it was out of gas when the old guy shut it off and half burnt out the starter until it stuck engaged.  End result is the same I have a nice running $35 tractor.
