Thought you all might want to see the stuff I've been working on.

 

1st is my Cub Cadet 70 with K181 engine and cast end deck.My uncle Gary passed away a couple weeks ago and this was one of his Cub Cadets.I had to have it.My Uncle Lenny made the rear fenders for it.Absolutely Love this little girl.

And My Troy Bilt made Gardenway mower meh.It cuts grass good.

 

My SS15 with deck.Slowly getting some work done on it.Carb is a mess.It was missing the hood and grill so I got the hood and grill off of my old Hydrotrac 12 and bolted them on.

My old Walk behind sickle mower.Just got her running and plan on using it alot.Runs good.

Stuff I'm working on for Ethan Linginfelter down in Bedford.67 Sears isn't forsale but he might sell the others.

 

Old Porter Cable Mark 1 with really good running little Kohler K171.However is is missing Alot of it's body Tins and 2nd gear is either gone or has a bent shift fork.Doesn't seem to be going in far enough.But the other gears go in nice and deep so I have no idea what's going on with the tranny.Engine was seized from sitting for a very long time.It runs beautifully now.

John Deere 112 with electric lift.Rotted out gas tank but runs and moves fine.

2 Bolens 1253s 1 with Hydro Lift.Other is an Engine donor and missing pretty much everything under the hood but a good block.

Bolens 1556 I haven't messed with yet.Is missing a couple parts off of the engine.

 

IMG_20160814_161053.jpg

 

 

I've been trying to stay buisy but it doesn't take long to get one running once you go through the carbs and ignition system.They all run but the 2 Bolens 1253s and 1556.There next in line lol.

 

 

I'll work on anything if I think I can save it.Me and Ethan have come to an agreement that I work on his stuff and get them running and he hooks me up with stuff.That's how I got the SS15,sickle mower and the Troy Bilt.Better than paying someone $40-45 an hour which is the going rate around here for a "Shop" to work on them.

 

I kinda look forward to him bringing me more stuff to work on.He has a BUNCH of stuff down there.Some is good and needs tinkered with to get running,some bad and some for parts.

 

He does want a bit to much money for his running tractors but he'll sell parts very reasonable.He does have a couple hundred tractors down there in various condition but most are for parts.

When they sit outside like that it don't take long for them to return to their prior condition.  Then you have the same projects all over again.  One way to stay busy for sure.  Nice looking little cub.

any chance you could send the serial number on the porter cable, I keep a registry of them, must have been repower at some point they originally came with briggs, I have a parts diagrams of the transaxle if you need

No numbers on this one.It's missing a bunch of it's tin work.

 

 

I've seen alot of pics on the web of them and about 1/4 of them have the Kohler K171.

 

Pretty sure it's the original engine.Nothing on it looks hacked up.Even the cutout for the starter generator has a nice smooth rolled edge.Here are 3 more that are Identical to it.There are a couple more on the web with the same engine but not many.
