Well, today Dad and I took our tool truck to the scrap yard to see how much it weighed, of course I went for other reasons, the hunt. :D
And boy did I strike gold this time. After going home to switch trucks to Dad's I went back alone, but before leaving Dad and I threw whatever scrap (real scrap) on that we had. Turned out I took in 400 pounds at the low price, and at the high price left with 800 pounds. I ended up paying 108 dollars on these items, which I will list their pricy features next to them:
Wheel Horse with decent rear sheet metal and gear transaxle, having good turf tires and oh ya, a SLEEVE HITCH.
2 large single cylinder Wisconsin engines, one having a good Rockford PTO clutch, the other having what that one was missing lol.
Front bumper off a 90s Craftsman which I promptly bolted on my GT18 when I got home lol.
Also grabbed a 2 speed medium duty truck transmisson mounted PTO unit only, that works. :D
I did leave something behind that I didn't see til one of the workers said he set it aside on the other side of the yard, and I walked over to see it, and will have to go back. I know George will love it though lol.
I will post some pics later, I have to get them off my phone.

Good Job Casey, The W.H. sleeve hitch is worth what you gave for the whole pile.

I had a feeling the sleeve hitch alone was like finding a gold bar lol. In a second I will post a pic of the Wheel Horse, had taken 2 pics but one didn't save I guess.

Casey, Look around the dash tower and see if you cn find the I.D. tag ussually under the dash on tower. It's a late C-series Model, before the 300' came out.

Left pedal is clutch and right pedal is brake.

I saw the ID tag but it needs to be cleaned a little, but of course now it is snowing. I have to ask, can the brake be moved to be the left side and clutch eliminated you think? (I plan to make it electric)

I know Shawn, I left something there I will go back on Monday to pick up, but only to save for some1 else. It is a Massey GT, I suspect a 14 or 16 cause of it's size, and that it is hydrostatic. It is very complete but the hood is damaged and no nose ring lol. It has a techumseh, bot sure its condition. I know this, the set of FMC wheel weights bolted to the back wheels are valueable. As some of you know I am not a Techumseh or hydrostat guy, so I would be saving it for some1 else to have, it's on the edge of restore and part.

Wheel Horse has a pre 1973 steering wheel on it, but seat springs are post 1972.
