I bought this a couple weeks ago knowing that it had a crack in the block, so the price was right. Brought it home this afternoon by way of the car wash. 37° so figured it was the best chance I would have to find what was under 2 years of inside dirt and dust. Tires were still about half up and looked good. B7100 HST with a 52" deck. Deck had been rebuilt with all new bearings 3 years ago. Tractor has not run for 2 years. Radiator drain was open. Oil had antifreeze in it. Drained about a quart of antifreeze before the oil started to emerge. Left a pan under it for the night. Will flush out as much as I can with diesel fuel. Fuel tank was 3/4 full, looked and smelled good but will drain that and use it for starting the fireplace. Overall the tractor don't look bad at all.
The deck is lowered. What is a good way to raise the deck for mobility clearance as the engine is not in running condition as yet. Would like to raise and chain or block it up some how.
