Does anyone know if this muffler is an original? It looks to be but I was never really sure.

I got that RideMaster, and shoved it off the trailer on a bridge deck over the Mississippi. I'm gonna melt down the implements and make JD wheel weights with them.

Its a 1886-01 if it has the pull nobs. The cut out means nothing now after I found more info sense I made the 1886 ID thread.

 

Are you saying that some -01s came with the oil filter cut out?

01 haws pull nobs 02 is the same but with up and down nobs cut out wont ID a 1886-02 any more because latter 1886-01 had them...  I have paper work to show it.

From the following quote, it sounds like that's exactly what you meant whether you actually stated it or not.

 The melted down implements would make the JD a whole and real tractor then with those on it. LOL

Bolens4life, are you planning on using this as a dedicated tilling machine, or will you be shopping for more attachments?

No, not a dedicated tilling machine. My goal is to own one of each of the LF. I just prefer that they be original with no mods. Perhaps some of the confusion on the cutout comment was that I stated there was no cutout on the engine shroud to access the oil filter. Seemed strange to me since my 23 has one. But maybe not.

I plan to keep one tiller and sell the other one. They both work great I just don't need two. They both have the extension kits on them.
