Well, I took the plunge.  First things first--add cup holder:

Once I got that part done, I decided to back over the tiller to see how things line up.  I don't have all the stuff to hook it up, and will probably need some guidance on this.

 

This is all I got

I think there's something missing here.

I don't think this is going to work. :)

Nice, lots of stuff missing for both attachments. Mower deck will need what is called a Mule Drive for the belts to pass over and bend, and all the hanger irons for the deck are gone. Did you get a box of hardware maybe?  I would go back to ask PO if around, he couldn't have used with-out the items!!  Maybe in a pail in garage, or in a corner under bench, that type thing. I can get you pix of parts diagrams and load on here. Will be a little later, too busy today.  Is there dual tranny's on this, can't see it all. How about some distance shots! Three point hitch? Maybe not if you have the tiller?  Seems it uses same lift for tiller in back. Can you get Serial number off the tags on dash or grill to maybe get closer on year of papers to look for?  That name down center of hood should be a clue for some, not me w/out looking. I always liked that center name decal.

To answer your question grumpy:

 

Yes, it has dual trannies:

20141001_182052_zpsf1a92fee.jpg

 

Yes on the 3 point:

20141001_182027_zpsc15164e4.jpg

 

Don't know if you can make out the serial, but it is 42029

20141001_182114_zps50aa2eee.jpg

 

And a few more shots

No, no other parts, I already asked.  Seller said the previous owner had told him the tiller worked, but didn't have anything else.  I'm going to look into getting the mule drive in the future, but for now I'd like to get the tiller going.  Can I get a drawbar and switch it out with the three point?  Or is there some other way to make it work?  I'd also like to find a moldboard, but it seems that finding one that is cat 0 is going to be hard.  I hooked up a plow from my buddy's Sears tractor, but the top arm kept kicking over when it would dig in..???  It's just a little too small.

These Economy tractors have always been a problem... They create a lot of drool at my house!

Was the cup holder to reduce the number of times you say "Hold my _____ and watch this?"

Found some info on my thumbdrive, hope it is right model.  Seems 63 to 80  is about same and yours comes out to be a 77 with my serial list. Here is the tiller prints/scans I made. Hope they work, ink is going on my printer and little light.

Mower stuff harder to find, so many variations. Here's some info. Not sure what size deck you had, but this one pix is of bigger 60" and Parrellel Hitch, which may be diff than 48".   The mule drive here looks a little diff than I recall I had for mine, but seems to be for the 48" deck.  Would be nice to have Owner's Manual for the deck, will have to see if such animal is in the drive I have. It would show parts better and how to install also.

That tiller mounts on the quick hitch so it will need to be 1974 and newer and uses the electric clutch instead of a belt tensioner.

You got it! I don't trust my shifty friends to hold my beer when I say "Watch this!" 

 

 

Wow, thanks for all the info guys!  This gives me an idea of where to start. I'm afraid I'm going to have a hard time finding what I need anywhere close to me.  These tractors aren't very common here in New Mexico.  All in due time I suppose.  Cat 0 stuff is proving hard to find as well.  What do you all think of the Cat 0 sleeve hitch adapters that Ballard Fabrication makes?  Sleeve hitch implements seem a bit more available.

Many Cat 1 items for Utility size tractors are narrower mount than standard Cat 1. then you can change the lift pins on some of those, even having to turn around and bolt in backwards so pin is facing IN, instead of out has worked for me. Look for Cat 1 stuff with I think 20 or 21" spacing and removeable pins. Pins usually held on by nuts both sides of metals.  Farm stores should have other size pins to put in it's place.

 

You have a tag on that tiller with a model number?  Seems my info keeps stating diff things for diff models of tillers. Might be able to break down better if I knew that. Anything on deck anymore?  So many differences over the years,  hard to get exact needs down.

Lots of stuff on ebay if you go to that. BUT, gotta know just what you want then also. That can be shipped right to your door!
