   I am going to nominate my 1990 Lawn Boy GT18 H lawn and garden tractor.  I brought this tractor home about a month ago.  Found it in south west Missouri near Lake of the Ozarks on Craigs.  It rained the whole time driving to go pick it up, and most of the way back.  About a 8 hour round trip.  My son Joe went with me go get it.  Haven't seen him since Christmas.  He and his wife live in Duncan, Oklahoma.  They were up here for Mother's day and a friends wedding.  That's Joe in the first pic.

    The tractor   needed the mule drive pulleys replaced on the front, as well as an idler pulley on the mower deck.  With the help of some good friends here on GTtalk I was able to find the mule drive  pulleys that fit it.  I had a idler pulley from an old John Deere that worked out fine on the deck.    I had to do some work on the mower deck, the bolt that held that pulley was frozen.  Gilson used a cool method of tightening the drive belt on the mower deck...it has  a slide system to adjust the pulley to tighten the belt, instead of a spring tensioner...  Makes for less moving parts, and works great.  I greased up the zerts on the mower deck spindles and sharpened and balanced the blades, and put it all back together.

 

   The old girl mows great!   I have mowed my yard and 2 of my neighbor's yards with it a couple of times with no problems at all.  Been trying to find a sleeve hitch for it, but I will probably weld my own.

OK guys nominate something.

This is my new to me 1971 Massey Ferguson MF12Hydra/drive.

I was looking for a MF12 Hydro for a repower project to make a grass cutter. Found one close by from a fellow GTT member, tractor fit the bill, it was a Hydro, came with mower deck and no engine. I bought a brand new on sale Princes Auto 13hp engine, comes complete with pull start, 12 volt starter, fuel tank, muffler. Installing was easy, removed the fuel tank and muffler that came with it, had to grind down one of the tank mounts as it hit the bottom of the battery box and made a new exhaust for it using a Cub Cadet muffler. Control cables fit without cutting them, the choke works backwards though, on is off, off is on. Engine fit the mounting holes on the tractors frame and the drive pulley was shimmed to fit the new engines crank. 1-1/8" pulley, 1" crank.

 

    I have used the tractor cutting grass now for about 10hs or more, mower deck needs a bit of work mainly idler pulleys worn out. Tractor needs a battery, new key switch, lights and a couple of new idler pulleys for the Hydro drive belt, ones on it now are noisy. Aside from that works good, really good. 

Another one I did.http://gardentractor...r-mf12-with-r71

Ok, you guys asked for it, I will put in my 1970 John Deere 140 H3. I am the third owner. First owner bought this tractor locally in 1970 and had it until 1977. The second owner had it from 1977 until 2011. I have owned it from 2011 on.

 I use it regularly to cut  grass in two different locations. Would like to get e snowplow or snow thrower for it some day. I would also like to make a wood splitter for the front. 

 The second owner had to make a deck for it, the original one rusted out. He took all the parts of the deck, took measurements and made a in deck out of an oil barrel. It was bent into shape in two parts, then welded together. All the other parts were put on to the new deck. works great. And I might add, that I never have any trouble getting around on hills. Still have the original rear turf tires for it.  Noel

Even though I find it hard to believe that only four of yas have mowing equipment attached to your tractors we are going with it. Thank you to those that nominated their tractors and good luck. Let the voting begin.
