Well im going to post this here since scotts was made by deere....I recently bought this tractor from my local mower shop for 200. It ran, drove and mowed, but it needed a bottom crank seal. I was going to make a series on it on youtube but since i already made a crank seal vid replacement on the Troy Bilt GTX 16, I decided to pass on it. I as of today have completed the tractor itself now, however i still need to clean up the deck. It came with a very heavy duty looking 48" 3 blade deck and has some pretty cool looking blades on it. This was my very first tractor that I ever replaced the crank seal on a vertical shaft engine where I left the engine in the tractor to replace it. I must say it wasnt all that hard to do thanks to the mojack tractor lift. The only problem I had really was trying to clean out all the oil that was spread around the bottom of the frame, oh and getting splashed with oil when i finally got the seal out. After cleaning it all up and washing it, using some meguires compound on it waxing it and finishing it up with some tire shine it is pretty well done. Here is a couple pics I took tonight...

That is a very nice tractor. You got a very good deal on it. I guess nobody at the JD dealer wanted to take on replacing that seal.
