I have been searching for a Bush Hog HD-12 for some time now and when one of our own members posted that he had one for sale, I jumped all over it. Thank you goes out to "RAJ" who not only made me a super deal, but also took it to Fastenal to get it shipped to me. I bought it without the wrong WIS engine it had in it as I have the right WIS 12HP engine out of another HD-12 to drop in it. I will try to find a rear tire to match the one good it has. I also have a good set of proper headlights to put on it

WooHoo!  Brian has joined the HD gang!  :dancingbanana:   And below is to answer your questions on the phone about the front axle bend and the throttle lever.  The pic of the axle may not show it well, but the center of the axle definitely has a factory drop.  I think you'll find your throttle is exactly like mine as well.

Thanks Daniel Here's what I've got and just wondering if OEM or not?

 

Front axle factory bend in it?

Brian, the axle looks exactly like mine, as well as the throttle.  While I didn't get a factory tank with mine, I'd say yours is OE.

Here's the one good tire on the rear that I'm going to try to find a match.

It's really in nice shape.
