Started to tear down the deck today to get my restore started. Also wanted to find out whats missing bent or broken so that I could start my search for parts in the mean while. Lucky for me I had another 42" mower deck in poor shape that seems to have all the parts for the larger deck that I will need.
I love how solid and simple these are hard to believe this was built in 1967 in the condition its in. This deck has probably mowed more grass in its life then I have. I am so excited about bringing it back to its glory days. I just wanted to share another great attachment I am working on for my Sears Suburbans.
48" missing the wheels, push button for the lift lever, top belt guard , bearings and refininhing.
42" I am pulling the wheels off , Removing the push button, belt guards to short (slight problem)
the deck is shot but a few other good parts to take off it.
