Well I took me an 80 mile (160 mile round) trip to get it but I got another Sears 1969 ss12. I am robbing the engine off it for my 68 hydro, putting the wheel weights and rims on my 68 manual, keeping the transmission as a spare, and using the rest as parts. The guy was a lil upset that this was the end of his project (should have finished it then hahah) and that I was going to be tearing it down to use on my projects but glad to see someone wanted this old thing all in the same breath.
I know the rules no road trip with out photos so I came prepared and thought of you guys.
Oh lovely my wife says another tub of parts .....I have to say ...I love all the free tubs...haha
This is an alternator of some sort PO took it a part to see what was wrong with it found the engine locked up so I got this thing to.
Scored me an engine for my tiller needs a carb.
Got this for extra parts, never know when I will bend mine....not very likely but this rusty junk came home with me to.
And to top the day off even pulling a trailer with my old volvo I was not the slowest thing on the road.
Notice that we I am doing 27 mph on the gps and keeping a distance back he was swerving, had no brake lights, and was the slowest thing ever going up a hill , tow vehicle was an older toyoto pick up.
