I went to look at a Ride-A-Matic today and I am thinking of getting it, It has alot of implements that come with it but needs a few things. I'm not sure of what would be involved in acquiring all the parts to restore it but it seems to be all there except the guard for the pulley and steering wheel. He would take $300.00 for it all. Let me know what you guys think?????

I would get it, can't pass that up. The attachments and lift pieces are the hardest parts to come by. Looks like the only thing missing is the engine and it's pulley.

I think I have some pics of dad's ride-a-matic and I will post them if I have them, maybe it will give you an idea of what is missing. If I don't have any I will go out and get some, especially of the belt setup.

The engin is there just not installed, It's a 7hp Kohler.

I couldnt find anything that looked like pic #7

kind of looks like it may have came from a grading /leveling attachment.
I do have manuals for the rest of the attachment pictured though
