The steering column should be black, other than that it's looking good.

That looks real nice, was there any mechanical problems. I have a 1250 hydraulic also. I bought it two years ago with a deck & snow plow. PO said it just quit. I seen the governor rod hanging down so I practically stoled it. I have one gt to finish & will be breaking this one down soon. I want this one to be a worker but I know once I start tearing it apart I may just do a total rebuild...that bright yellow sure looks good. Lol

Sawdust I am running into a few problems. PTO isn't engaging. Don't know yet if it's the switch or the PTO is bad? Also, got it started but it wouldn't take any throttle. It would sputter and die when I gave it some throttle. Found out it was of all things, I didn't have condenser grounded. Just had it hanging. Runs much better now but leaks gas out of carb if I don't shut fuel valve off.
