Hi everyone !
I'm new to the site, and am glad one actually is out here.
See, my dad finally gave up and passed down the old MF 1450 that I grew up on. That was almost 35 years ago when he purchased it.
Anyway, needless to say it is in very bad shape and probably is better as scrap, but I don't want to haul it off to the bone yard quite yet. I would actually like to restore it back to it's original condition (when I was a kid). There weren't too many that ever sold in my area under the MF name, but there were lots of "Snappers" out there.
If I'm not able to "restore" it, I would at least like to convert it over to a garden tractor that can do some real work, and let me get some projects done that my 5 year old Craftsman couldn't even begin to handle. (They don't make them like they use to)
If anyone has outlets or resources for parts, decals, information, or whatever, it would be greatly appreciated.
This isn't going to be a quick project since I don't even have the original engine. Basically I was able to salvage the frame, drivetrain (minus engine), fenders, wheels, and hood.
Thanks in advance !!
