Where do I start restoration of my Bush Hog D4-10. It does need a carb and linkage.

Welcome to the forum! Pictures will help. But getting it operational should be your first priority. Pictures will give us an idea of its condition and possibly if it is missing any parts. Glad to have another fellow BH owner on the site!

Start by just checking that everything turns as it should.  Then go to the engine & get it running proper.  Process of elimination.  Pics are always good!

First off, resist all offers from olcowhand, TD&H, and sacsr! Otherwise, the above info sounds correct!

Good info above. I try to get everything assembled and properly working. Do any repairs, replacements, welding, etc first and check everything out. It's better to start with a whole working assembly before moving on to finish work. Have done it the other way once and had to redo all the finish work after having to re-rebuild an engine. I also like to make a parts list before and modify it during of what parts I need to find or replace. Take lots of pictures before and during. They can be very valuable if you cannot exactly remember how something should be assembled. Do it once and do it right and it will last a long time. Good luck.
