Not sure I am gonna keep it, picked it up mostly because it was there and complete. I really want to find a deck for my d4-10 so I can begin using it. Funny because I picked this up very close to where I got my d4-10 from so there must have been a dealership there somewhere.

Yep, gotta get it running and mowing first then make the decision. I need to get the serial #'s from both my machines for you. Will do it in the next few days.

Looks good! Does it have a Goldsteins sticker on the dash? They were a huge dealer for these machines in Mass.

very nice! great find. I haven't seen one with graphics like that on the hood. model designation in only one spot per side and different font. keep us posted on it.

The early model V series must have had only 1 model designation. Maybe to differentiate it from the D series tractors? Here is my serial number 6003 V3-6 tractor. It too, only has the 1 model emblem.

No golstein sticker on there, got it of the truck tonight and boy is it rusty!!! gotta give it a bath then see about the engine, turns over but has zero compression. pretty sure a valve is hung open but gotta take it apart to be sure.

Tore into the engine today, it has been rebuilt at least one time. Piston is .010 oversized, someone stamped 1/2 0n the top of the block as well. Not sure what that's about.
I believe the 1/2 is .005 oversize, which was a factory thing when std tolerances weren't within spec.
