Some of you will remember the old Frankenstine I aquired last fall. Put the chinese motor in it and patched up some tires. Chopped a G14 hood to fit. Had a good solid 4 + Hi/Lo rear end under it. Not to bad an old tractor but NO PTO.
A guy contacted me that had a G12 with a starter out. Said it was his grandkids tractor but was to much tractor for them to play around with. I had another 3 speed transaxle that is in real good condition so we made a trade. I put the 3 speed in the tractor this afternoon. Will back the throttle control down to about 3/4 throttle max. Wil make a good kids tractor, still plenty of power at 13hp Chinese rated which would be about 8 hp from a Wisconsin or Briggs. We traded satraight across and he is doing the hauling.
That old Chinese is a good engine. Sat for over a month in the shed and when I went to get it yesterday morning I started on the first pull. If has electric start but no charging system. Plan to keep it pull start as that is another way to control who and when the tractor will be run.
All part of the fun of buying, selling trading and cobbling up GT's.
