Welcome to GTT. An Economy is a great first tractor. You should beware that this can be a very addictive and fun hobby. Start out by downloading the manuals for the tractor and its engine from our Manuals Section(3 free downloads per day). Then look through our Galleries to see what they can look like. Post pics and questions when you have them. Good Luck, Rick

Welcome to the forum! Looks like the pics didn't come through. In my signature is a link on how to upload pics here. We would rather they be uploaded than using a link.

COOL! and the price is right. I would be patient with the engine...give it time and use slight pressure. If there is some movement it will let go and allow you to turn it over eventually..

Well, it's not a Jim Dandy. From what I can see in the pics, it looks to be a Power King! If those are two piece rims in the back, it's a 24" tractor, the big daddy. Dual transmissions, very nice. Armstrong hydraulics but sometimes they are best for mowing. Got pics of the sheet metal so we can nail this down a little better? Would a serial number tag have survived? Well, maybe not. In the close up of the transmission I think I see where the SN tag was. If it was there, then you have the older style short hood tractor, 1972 or older.

Hi Denden, "when I lifted the back I move one tire foward the other moves in the opposite direction" that is normal so your good to go there, as for a carb you can get a new aftermarket carb on e bay for about $55.00 and that's the way to go, they are brand new and work great I've installed 4 on different engines now, you can not buy a good OH kit that includes the throttle shaft and bushings for that money and just about every carb needs a throttle shaft and the bushing.
