I found this one in a barn under a tarp. It had been there so long the guy almost forgot it was back there. Rolled it into the shop and after changing the plugs and flushing the fuel system she started right up. Got lots of toys with it to.

This is the first small tractor I have owned.  Got it figuring I could get it to run.  With all the attachments did not think I could go wrong.  Got it home checked the engine out and turned the key and she came to life.  After going through it I have not found anything to fix.  After a wash job to remove barn dust even my wife thinks my tractor is sexy

Nice barn find, glad you saved it.
Toys? What toys? I see a nice looking deck and a nice set of discs... What else was with it?

Got a dozer blade, cultivator, single plow and mother board plow, 42 inch mower, disc, 3 point hitch and a great running engine.  Lost one wheel weight in the barn though.  Might take it back if he don't find that. LOL

If you only have one weight, be sure to use it on the left so you can plow better. Also, use chains.
