Bad thing is theres 13 more tractors in the same garage that these came from. I see a wheel horse mid mount engine in my future. My birthday is Friday... The wife may refrain from complaining if I do it then.


Resistance is futile. There is no known cure for this disease. Other then more garden tractors :D

Hey this thing has no means of reverse! This is going to be exspensive!

I am by no means an expert on these tractors, but like Brian posted there are some pieces missing to engage the drive on your tractor. Hopefully they can be found from some of our members or even fabricated in a shop. The Ride-O-Matic I bought would have been a welcome addition to the family even if I had to push it to a spot at the shows. I just wanted one and finally found one for sale. Just be patient and I hope good things happen.

Nice looking RAM. You have a 1958 220-01 ride a matic. The original motor should have been a kohler k160. You are missing the versa drive which is what controlled the speed and reversing. You got a pretty good deal. I have a 58 as well, I uploaded a manual which can be found here http://gardentractor...e-ride-a-matic/
