About a month ago I helped a friend (Larry)  haul home an Amigo garden tractor.    It was missing a few important parts Last Saturday

Larry managed to get permission to return to the machine shed it was stored in to look for those parts. He my brother and I started in one corner and checked every nook and cranny.  This machine shed is used by the local community organization to store and prepare floats and exhibits for the village activities.    About 3/4's around the building I moved some artificial Christmas trees and a chunk of rusty metal caught my eye.   Moved another tree and sure enough the missing tranny cover, seat and levers were hiding like a Christmas present.  Everyone was pleased and relieved.
