1. the key will not start it. have to jump across on the terminals.
2. when engaging the mow deck it has to be done slowly, tho dose seem better after greasing the bearing casings. it dose spin up better. but needs to be slow or the engine dies.
3. when the engine starts to die, depressing the clutch, and retarding the throttle will keep it running.
4. wont mow much or far with out the motor dieing.
I am new to this area, was glad to see that they are collectable and have a following. I had bought it because it was a good price and well built,, plan on using it in the garden also. can anyone help, guide me to resolve these issues. I do plan on tearing down and rebuilding/restore this winter

Yes, you got a good deal. Maybe better than good.
I do believe there are going to several minor maint. adjustments and possibly a carb rebuild in your future... but Casey has the best first step. Try some carb cleaners and also look around here a little bit to read up on the effects of ethanol in the new gas and also the benifits of SeaFoam for continued long term reduced troubles.
When you get the chance, there is a service manual that will be invaluable. It can be found in the manuals section under Massey Ferguson. Good luck with your new GT, and if you have pics, please post them.
