What's the story on this? Been waiting for the pictures!  No deal then?  Wanna see, wanna see!  If no deal, go over and take pictures just to let us see what the heck it was. Might be satisfying for the rest of us, ha!

Glad you got it. Don't know much about these but looks like a good project. I heard a guy say one time "if it casts a shadow it's worth having".

Surely not a POS!!  I've bought much worse myself.  I think it looks pretty good. Trans stuck is not big issue, common on these, and easy to fix. Building up end ball on shifter with weld and grind down to size again. Tans top comes off easy if you remove the tunnel tin, the harder part and you can sometimes shift the gears back by hand and  put cover back on and it works for awhile with careful shifting of the pattern and slow easy throws. If you look at my Avatar, I don't have the tunnel on mine, put in plate floor and trans is always open to work on if needed. 2nd tractor I did that too. You have to make diff place for battery and oil tank to ride on tho, as it sets on the pan. Heck, if you don't want it, save it for ME, I'll figure out how to get it home....... :dancingbanana: I think you done good! Duals are nice, can sell the adapters easy if you don't wish to use them. Yes, they are cub wheels at both ends.

Pix too dark, does it have the hydraulics and 3 point on it?  This is a long hood, so electric pto in front and later model year, the best decade of the tractor. Lots of parts on epay and other places, won't have any issues with that. Bearings and bushings are all stock items, get anywhere. Get the serial off the tag on dash or front grill if still there. Just a decal, not stamped.  Sometimes under foot  tin  is a stamped number in frame top, but not always. Again, the tin tunnel has to come off to see. We have charts to look up  year. Might be one here now with all the PK stuff loading up  in the manuals section.

 

I see mule drive for mower is still hanging on there, you get a deck? That drops off pretty easy, if you take off, keep it handy, don't junk.  A snow blade is easy to get and mounts on same blocks under the frame if you wish for one of those. Maybe PO has the deck or a blade laying around in weeds or a barn?

Kohler, not Briggs. 3 point hitch, no attachments. May mess with it some next week. Left tie rod end snapped off while loading.This thing has more rust than a "square" body Chebby truck, that's saying a lot.
