There's usually alot of used attachments on Craigslist and ebay. Sometimes Rick (Blackjackjake) will have some used attachments for sale as well

I will definitely try the marvel oil. I do plan on running it for a little while to see if any problems arise. My plan is to use it to pull logs to the 4 stroke chainsaw mill I'm building. So I figure I would tear it down and do the work to have it ready to haul logs come fall. Am I better off leaving it alone? I realize it's prob never going to be worth what I put in it, but that's still less than half or even a fourth of a new garden tractor and it would pretty much be a new garden tractor. It looks pretty indestructible. I also love to build things so there's that too. If I'm asking for trouble tearing it apart then I'll gladly leave it alone and use it. Just figure if you wait til it goes, more to replace
Tearing it apart is fine. You will find some things that need attention. I think it is up to you if you want to use it as is for now or take it apart. Just remember that if you do a nice job on it then it will be out of commission for some time. They are heavy tough tractors for sure. Deerelope did an outstanding job on his. There more pictures of it somewhere I've seen them on this or some other forum.
