Found this one today on Craigslist today and decided to go after it. It's a CC 1862 with about 900 hours on it. The previous owner said it had a head problem or something else, he got it from a friend. I got it to fire up and to me it sounds like a bad head gasket and possibly a cracked ring or ticking valve.
Got a free one today

Can't beat a free deal. Maybe you'll get lucky and the only problem is a blown head gasket. Good luck.

I'd like to harvest all of the power steering components from this and transplant them onto my jd 140

That would be a $200 machine where i live. except the guy would be asking $450, ad would say "ran when parked" "easy fix get the parts online $20."
Nice score, good luck with the new project

Yep, Free is always good! I did that with a Scotts a few years ago. Got it for free, got the parts off it including the engine then sold what was left for $50.
