Good purchase! Even if its missing the spark, it's still a good deal.

The Deeper I look the happier I am . This is money I didn't need to spend (but well spent)  ... I am starting to really like this thing.

I looked it over good this morning . The front tires and back are in great shape - the fronts are 16X5.50X 8 not what they should be but OK with me.

The starter works - the battery is junk - BUT - It does fire Up !! With quick fluid and a jump ... The carburetor is pouring gas out when it fires so the fuel pump works . It runs strong and fires easy.

So a carburetor rebuild first. And a good battery might be all . Then to test the driveline . It is all here (as far as I can tell) .

What a nice machine - it will clean up very nice and only a bit of a crunch on the hood where someone hit a tree or something .

Here is a follow-up picture of the Saw blades I got from the same sale as the tractor .

 

All of them are pretty old - the big one third from left is an Ice Saw - missing handle its 60" pretty long .

I paid $10 for all four . On E-Bay $200-250 for all.

I finally got back to this beast today .

I have the carb. rebuilt  and  put on .

Just need to get a hose clamp for one of the lines and a new battery . Then add gas and test it out .

 It was definitely cruddy and needed new seals. I hope I got it right , it was the first time I ever did a carb. kit.
