I recently got this 750 in on a trade and just got some time to work on it today. It's in average condition for it's age and is dirty from sitting outside for some time. First problem I noticed when I got the tractor was that it had no spark. I believe this was due to the points being dirty or the condenser went bad. So today I drove to my local OPE shop and picked up a newer Briggs magnetron coil to replace the old one. After swapping the coils out I was able to get the engine to fire on gas dumped down the carb. It won't stay running due to old gas that has been in the tank and carb for a long time. That will be the next area to address.
My plan for this tractor is to get it running good then use it to plow snow with this winter. I'm also thinking about removing the starter generator and replacing it with a recoil start so I don't need to worry about a battery.
