I Bought this home the other day with a carb kit for my Wheel Horse 656. I only went for the kit but ended up with this also. It had set outside for quite a few years and was covered with green and black crap all over it. (Alas I washed it off as soon as I got it home without thinking to take pics of it.) It cleaned up pretty good and with a little work on the wiring it now starts and runs really nice.
The Deck is another story. The deck itself has a lot of surface rust but is in fairly good shape.
The Belt was stuck to the pulley's from years of rain and rusting. The pulley's are pretty much scrap. I don't really know that I want to spend the money to repair the deck so may post it for sell to someone who has a rusted out 44 inch deck but decent pulley's.
I may just end up putting the whole thing up for sale and try to refrain from buying tractors when I am out buying parts for the ones I already have. .
