Going to go look at a Ride A Matic this evening. Owner says it runs and drives good. It's a 231-01, 1960 model. Anything in particular I should look for on this unit? Have never been around one before. From photos I think there are a couple covers missing to start with. Has been repainted and the hood side decals are painted over but that is all cosmetic.
Ride A Matic Advice Needed

The main thing to look for is the Belt Guards!
If you dont get those with the tractor they are scarce as hen's teeth when you look for some separately.....

From the one photo I saw of the machine, it looks like the belt guard on the right side in not there. Not sure on how it is to look from the angle he has but will know more when I look at it in person.
