No motor, Look like the gear box may be apart too. Tires maybe worth that??
Plastic hood looks decent too, or at least very repairable.

They went from one of the most durable drive trains on the market to one of the weakest in the market in one year.Most of these later glass models are sold with the transmission in a five gallon bucket.

I bet Grumpy will be looking. I could really use that hood for my Snapper made PK, I think he needs one too
If you look in the pic below, looks like manual steering box, but there is a hydro pump too, maybe that's for the lifts.

Can you use the one pc hood to replace the 3 pc hoods?
I just acquired a later model Snapper with the 3 pc hood and am curious.

OK, I wanna stay away from these now too. Have had a few, never much luck with any, cept one. Not power steering on this one. Don't see the clutch anywhere, usually one of first parts to go bad, then trans after. Biggest thing on this that is neat is those Huge 31" back tires/wheels. Have had those, and they really do need space to get into garage with those on! Looks like dash and some body parts would be pretty good shape. Probly a $150 parts tractor in my opinion. I see lots of these chassis made into other miniature tractors or other things in portland each year. the chassis is nice and heavy, driveline NOT! And another Minus on this one is the Twin KT17 engines were junk most times.

Guys, hoods are competely diff set-up. Even the dash on the 3pc bumps way up high and hood has to bend up to meet that. Sides held on by special clips and places where plastic slips in at bottom. The frames are the same, but think every body part is diff, including floorboards and rear half of body. I was told Body Shops can repair the hood panels, much like working on plastic parts on some cars. Not sure, bet not cheap either. Mission wanted about $350 each for the sides and over $500 on hood, and didn't wanna make any other deal because of rarity of items. Ka-Ching!!
