Great find. When you are picking up the additional parts don't forget to ask about literature, signs, promotional materials, and a bone pile. There is always forgotten stuff. Good Luck, Rick

Going down tomorrow to get the rest of the goodies, there's also some Troy-bilt stuff mixed in with it

Some hot all the luck likely got it cheap

Paid a fair price in my eyes,didn't steal it,the loader was the biggest interest,I let the owner set the price and I thought it was fair

It seems like with some new paint, a set of headlights and a decal kit that it could be made to look pretty nice again.  :thumbs:

Had a chance to go out and check the tractor and loader out,my good friend Kevin(WrenchinOnIt) also stopped by,,needed another set of eyes on it,I fired it up and yep the crank is bent for sure,all the years of doing this never saw that,can't imagine the noise it had to make when that driveshaft came apart,also I found a model number on the loader,its a model 25,any thoughts from you guys about it,has the pto shaft driven pump,the loader is in very nice shape,if it's been fitted for this tractor some one did a super nice job,even Kevin is amazed how nice it is for the age,here's a couple pics

That I am, not a single fatigue or stress crack on it ! No repair welds anywhere ! Very nice mount/shield for the PTO pump, if this was made to fit this tractor it's as nice a job as I've seen.
I like the uprights sit on the channel iron and not cantilever like on the model 14, I like it's wider stance that allows for the muffler to stay horizontal, I like, I like,I like, nuf said . Thanks buddy

I wonder if a machine shop could straighten the crankshaft?

The previous owner checked with a shop,they said it couldn't be done,and a new Kohler crank if you find one would be way out of hand dollar wise

Great haul there Rick. If that engine runs good I would not be concerned to much about a bent crank. Kind of hard to bend a crank and not do other damage.

I think you have to be, it connects the engine to the hydro pump via the driveshaft (no longer in unit ) I don't believe the universals would hold up to the wobble it would subject them to, I thought it would have at least taken out the rear seal yet its been running several times and setting in the same place for over 24 hrs and no drips, it's a shame because it is a nice sounding engine

I don't need that set of FMC front wheel weights on that other tractor lol I'm looking for 1 more set of 8in an 12in

That tractor and its' weights want nothing to do with you... you have history.. :poke:

I wonder if a machine shop could straighten the crankshaft?

Thought the same thing, serial number and specs number put it beyond the bad oil pump era on the 532's , pretty much the fact that its a 2087 with the plastic dash and PTO brake did as well. It's a shame, the engine sounds really good.

Could always get a second opinion - the worst they can do is say no like the first place did.  I know that machine shops straighten automotive cranks after they weld them to build up journals.  Another idea might be to adapt a collar to fit the crankshaft and then turn it on the crankshaft so the adaptor runs straight and make up a shorter shaft from it to the hydro - just a thought.
