I guess it was ment to be. A Snapper 1650 came up on CL while I was trying to get hooked up with the WH D-160. The morning I left to get the WH I said to myself "if its still there when I get back I will call". After the adventure of that morning I couldnt bring myself to think about going out again. Then the rest of the weekend adventure happened I forgot about everything else. Yesterday while sitting at home taking car eof William I was cruzing CL. The 1650A was still up threr and he dropped the price too. I called and left a message. I did not hear back from him till this morning. He called and we set up a time and place. William and me had a road trip.

I got her back home and put the charger one her. I did not find a spark so I checked the points. They were not conducting so I hit them with sand paper. Got spark. Put some gas in the tank and it started to leak out. The PO had buggered up the cut off. So I poured a little gas on the breather and she fired up. :smilewink:

Quick checks and found all the deck spindle frozen, no problem I had just gotten done rebuilding the spindle for the 1855 and havent put the deck back together. Aux spool valve handle is broken. Doesnt feel like the belts are on the rear PTO. The deck has a hunk missing.

Anyway, the trailer pulls better with a load on it. It wa snice not having to cram a GT on it. The gate/ramp is the shizznit.

Onto the PICS

Nice tractor. On the trailer, one of the pics looks as if you have the ball too high. When empty with that candition, the trailer will pull 'funny'. should be near level, maybe a tad high when empty

It's always nice to bring a "new" tractor home even when you need to do some mechanics. Glad to hear the engine fired up and it has has the extra goodies .

It is not hooked to the truck in th pics. I had unhooked it and pulled the truck around. It does ride high when empty and with the tractor on there it was level and pulled alot better with a load.

Might want to build a box on the front for your tie down goodies and such. May be it needs a little tongue weight added. Plus being new, may be a bit stiff in the suspension. What does it do when empty?

Nice tractor. Am I seeing things or are there 2 different sized front tires on it? I find my trailer is a pig when empty as well. There are no shocks so the springs are really bouncy with no weight on them. I found mine handles much better when it has 500lbs or more on it.

Nice score coldone! Looks like that chunk went missing in a hurry, like something knocked it out! Sounds like a decent machine. Nothing wrong that can't be fixed (of course to most of us, that's anything that's wrong LOL). Glad you got it running too!
