I got an old midland walk behind tractor, it came with my house! I have the mower, harrow, sickle bar, sulky and disc! So far i love this machine, it has a briggs on it, not sure of the horse power!
I cleaned the points, filled the tank and a shot of start fluid and it started and ran decent for not being started in 40 years. I was able to get it going well enough to pull itself out of my garage.
The questions I have is where can i get information about how everything on the machine is supposed to work? for example the brakes? does it even have one? i took it for a spin with the sulky and going down it hill it was pretty scary!
The throttle cable is there and is free, but i am not sure were or how it hooks up? I throttled it up by clamping small vice grips on a rod near the carb!
I do not plan to restore it, i want to fix it up a little and use it around my property. I definitely want power wash the years of grime off of it!
I will be working on adding pics for everyone to see!
thanks in advance for anyhelp!
