You are thinking kind of along my lines. The 2185 i really dont have much desire to mess with, i was just keeping it because of the drivetrain, (i wanted to transplant it into one of the G9s), but the only G9 with a nice body i want to make original anyways.
A few ideas for ya IMO--> Don't shoot me guys!
First off the 2185 would be the first to go in my book. It's a recent MTD product and may be worth something for the tranny and tires/deck.. Fix the motor if you can but they don't fetch a lot of $$ in my area anyway..
Next up would be (Speaking of MTD.. the 2050.. Yes, they are a nice machine but a lower value machine aka- stamped metal frame....
The snowblower.. If it don't work, there are a lot of them I see abandoned on the side of the road free for the taking.. Buh bye..
Pressure washers.. The pumps are the usual culprit followed up by dirty fuel systems. pretty easy to fix but I see lots of them running for ~$50 on CL. A $70 pump and your in business.. Buh bye to one of them..
FORD LT8.. Another lower end light GT in my book.. See ya...
The engines- If they are smaller HP with holes in the blocks---> out! The Wisconsin would stay in my wife's parking spot in the garage! Larger twins or common engines would be keepers for future acquisitions.. (Like you won't pick up another machine!)
The plow? It's your call.. Post up a picture in the forum here so someone may know what it fits.. Go from there..
The 77 LTDII? As an old Ford owner I'm kinda biased.. If it looks like this:
Lots of $$$$ can be eaten up working on these.. The big ? is how bad is it?
The Lone Ranger- Another how bad is it and can I afford to fix it? If not, offer it up to some like minded individual..
Just a few suggestions and personal feelings from a guy who has whittled his mower collection down to just one of everything but it all works!
Good Luck with the wife when she sees the Wisconsin!!
The 2050 i wouldnt of messed with but i didnt do my research, i thought it dated back to atleast the 80s, but its currently in my shop on blocks, ill mess with it some but im not gonna put much thought into it i dont think.
The LT8 i was plannin on useing as a toy for trail riding, the jury is out on if itll stay or not.
All the motors i have are good, no holey blocks :), the wisconsin ive thought about selling but i dont know if it runs or not, i was told it did.
The LTD II is in nice shape, it was my first car, 351w/FMX trans. 2 door, although its baby piss yellow :) lol, all it needs is a timing chain, carb, and fuel tank. BTW is that your LTD?
The ranger....ehhh its sentimental but needs alotttta work.
Thanks for the help guys, i think im gonna sell some, but not all of it. Maybe keel an eye out for another 149 cub.
Heres a pic of the LTD circa 04, it still looks the same, been sitting in a garage since 07.
