Hello everybody,

 

 I was able to acquire this Bantam Tractor today. Was told the carb needs some work so I was wondering if anybody might have some literature or location to find more info on it. Thanks.

That's a neat little bugger. :thumbs:

 

I usually just google the particulars and that brings up forum links, etc. :wave:

Well I lucked out. The gentleman I received the mower from said it hadn't been ran in ten years. Thought something was wrong with the carb.  Brought it to my house tonight to clean it so I could start messing with and checked the spark plug and it had spark. went ahead and put some gas in it and it fired right up. went ahead and mowed my front yard tonight. My three old son loves it. He calls it his mower and says I get the push one ha ha.  It really is a blast to ride.   Now planning on cleaning it up and doing some minor maintenance items. 

 

Cant decide if I want to paint the hood or powder coat?  Also not sure what color to go with.  Any ideas would be great.

 

This is my neighbor and his grandson taking a ride.
