Hi, from what the seller told me the engine needed overhaul he took it to a small engine shop they OH'd it but installed the rod in backwards, engine ran less than an hr and broke the rod and case, it been sitting in his shed for a number of yrs no engine but the rest is suppose to be there. We'll see hoping to go pick it up tomorrow or Wednesday.

Well got it off the trailer power washed it and it doesn't look to bad I'm happy with the deal. Don't know what model year it is, the SN decals are missing and I could not find a number stamped on the tractor as of yet, but I'm thinking around the mid 70's what do you fellows think?

Thanks Username, and thanks for the model yr target date.

Ok after spending a lot of the evening going thur Larry Goss's thumb drive I'm thinking it is a 1976 model yr at least that's what I'm going with.

That's in really nice shape, Gary. The hood doesn't look crinkled, and those belt guards on the deck are really snazzy.

That seat and steering wheel were last used in 1977 and the front mount blocks were first used in 1974 so that it how I cam up with the time frame but of course they could have been changed.I might have a block if you need one.

Ok all, have a question what is the shift pattern of the 3 speed tranny's is it R upper left down left for 1st and 2nd upper right?

Another question what gear do you generally use for the rear trans?
