Almost WAY off topic now but here goes.....

Just been delivered an H20? (2087) #202874, mower deck, tiller and snow thrower. $400.00! Repainted I'd guess.... No decals at all.

What a brute! This thing is HUGE!

The K532 is now running (kind of). More "putzing" to come to make it sweet.....

I used to play around with the K582's at work (panel control-early 80's) and still remember the smell of that new engine making ready to go to work on the Toro "Rake-O-Vac".

 

My new toy is mid Seventies (if I understand correctly).

This one smelled of burned leaves, oil and gasoline when it woke up........ And my clothes smell the same. :-)

Much more to do before I till my gardens with this behemoth.

Thank you gentlemen.

That was not a bad deal for a large frame. It will continue to impress you with its power and all around usefulness.  They do that to me, anyway.  :thumbs:

Welcome to GTTalk. It sounds like a great deal for a great tractor. The fact that you are familiar with those engines is a big bonus.

It ain't pretty but it's pretty big! The water can and oil can are not miniature. Find the oil can and win! ;-)

OK, got this done. Now to put the new spark plugs in so it runs right.

These opposed twin engines make the sweetest music!

No way man! She's mine to play with....... ;-)

At least you got the joke!

That darned old bird. Just like a woman, give her two new spark plugs that WILL work and..... NOPE. I ain't runnin' for you...

AT ALL.

I'll buck you, that noisy starter and bark at you loudly! She did.

Ugh, why didn't I just order the points and a condenser when I was at the parts store? Ugh. Could've had'em in the morning.

I don't like it when a machine kicks my butt. It usually does not happen that way.

 

Machines are cool. Engines are cooler!

But every once in awhile we meet one that kicks us in the AXX. She's a'kickin' me.

Stubborn old mule.

Uhuh uhuh BANG! Is what she said to me tonight.

She will be mine. Else it's a male machine then I'm sunk! Don't know how to deal with that....... That tractor may be.....

:-) Good fun.

Difficult old Basxxxd.

The sensitivities of these old machines.

But when you learn them and they you? Sweet music!

Tomorrow!
