Hi all, I just picked up a 1973 2414 Economy. dual trans and hydraulics. It has been sitting for quite a few years and will need some work. It is completely unmolested, no homemade mods, no welds, none of the holes are wallowed out, orig untouched wiringit does need one rear rim..It had spent almost its entire life on a one acre flat property so it was never worked hard. It came with a 48" mower deck, moldboard plow, disc harrow, some type of rigged scraper blade and a rake. He also gave me the original add book from 1973. In the next few days I will see if I can get it started. I paid $750 for all of it.

Sounds like a good package.1973 is the first year for the newer long hood and the last year for the old style front implements.

 

If it sat outside uncovered for any period of time there is a good chance that both transmissions are full of water and will need repair or replaced.

Welcome to GTT. Congratulations on a great GT. You can download the engine and tractor manuals from our Manuals Section(3 for free per day). I agree with above. Start by draining any water out of the bottom of the transmissions and the rear end. Water settles to the bottom and will drain out first. If there is a lot of water you should over haul the unit or rusted components can tear good things apart. Drain the engine too and put fresh oil in it if it is not seized. Clean the fuel and ignition systems and it may start. Ask questions when you have them. Good Luck, Rick

I'm going to check  all the fluids tomorrow. The engine spins free. I spent about 3 hours last night reading here on the forum to prepare.

Checking for water in bullgear housings and rear-end casing is good idea too. Many times no one messes with the bullgear oils and either dry or water in them and low on oils.

:wave: Welcome to the forum! Sounds like a real nice package deal there. Pics help folks help you, so check out the link in my signature for a video on uploading those. I am uploading a bunch of manuals for these tractors & implements. If you do not see one that may help you, give a holler. I'll see what I have and upload it for you guys.
