I was looking for a mowing deck and a few parts for my 1220s so I went back to the guy I bought my first one from because he had a "600? Bolens" on his craigslist ad. It was complete with a mowing deck, weight box, and the bracket I needed for my Sno-Caster.
I arrived and found that the starter/generator had been removed! I asked what happened to it and he said "I guess someone must have taken it." Yeah, right. It was there a few weeks ago and the connectors were clean, like it had just been removed. If I hadn't driven nearly an hour I would have turned around and left.
It had the parts I needed, they were in good working condition, so I took it.
I don't plan on keeping the tractor, but I had planned on getting it running so I could sell it. Now I have to borrow a starter generator from my BIL to get it running and make sure it's not another smoker.
