parting stuff like that dont work good around here, nobody would want it

If that LandLord was closer to me, i'd buy it in an instant. I need backup parts for mine.

I hate seeing it parted but I must live to far away. I love these old things.

Not sure what it is but can never find anything like that around here. Tried an auction once and big bidders on that stuff. Guess I will have to be happy with my wheelhouse and powering.

theres not much interest in the hobby around here,people would rather spend their money on new ones that dont last as long as the old ones i see 2000 and newer machines on craigslist that are basic junk, beat up, blown up. but my 69 hydro trak 12 is still going strong.

I don't know why you people don't realize it probably did run when parked, did you ask him if he robbed the parts for some other tractor?

The points plunger is part number 298125. There is usually some on ebay if a vendor here doesn't have one for you. You need to replace the points plunger bushing also, unless you plan on removing the cam and installing the plunger from the inside of the engine. Get the rubber boot, retaining clip, and metal ring for the boot. This keeps oil out of your points box. Oil fouled points won't spark. All of these part numbers can be found in an illustrated parts list for a Briggs 233431 engine. That tractor is worth restoring in my opinion since it's mostly complete. I guess it all depends on how much you are willing to take on. A complete restoration is time consuming and can get costly.

well before the discussion on the points i turned the steering wheel, it didnt turn anything else, look at the steering wheel in relation to the tires, he said o i must have put the steering wheel on crooked, after that i had doubts about his story. but i do know it is as is sale buyer beware, that is how all my other deals was.but dont try to bs a bs'er.lol.
