Picked it up over the weekend. Little bit of carb work and cleaning out the gas tank and she purrs like a kitten. Came with snow plow, moldboard plow, tiller, discs, mowing deck, turf tires, mud tires, and a wide set of tires with chains and wheel weights. Just a few questions. I need to get some parts to address the loose stearing and get him yard worthy.
1) is this a 59 ride a matic? (7hp engine)
See first pic

2) can someone help me out with numbers for the ball joints? Wild hunch...Bolens 1000 will save the day (see pic 2)

3) the bearing that allows the front wheels to articulate. I need a part number . See pic 320150614_085847-1.jpg IMG_20150618_172808.jpg IMG_20150618_172932.jpg

Looks like there was a problem with the pics, did you do a direct upload from your computer?

Worked now :D

 

Looks to be a 230-01 1959

Seems to be in decent shape and the attachments are a big bonus

 

Ball joints are 1707639

 

The center pivot was just a shaft and housing no bronze bearings were used, if yours is very sloppy you may have to get it machined and put a bushing in there.

Any chance you've been able to use the blade? I'd like to know how it works.
