If you weren't 16 hours from me I would take her.
Just a LITTLE to far away.Not going through the whole shipping thing lol
She looks to be in really good condition for not being run in a good while.
Cub trannys have a H shift pattern R/1 2/3 just like an old farm tractor or older Truck or car with a 3 speed on the floor.Kinda confusing if your used to the I shift pattern in most other garden tractors.Lock the clutch down on the 1st notch and give it a pull and see if the tires turn at all.1st notch is for clutch only 2nd notch is for clutch and brake.If it's adjusted correctly lol.
That should get the gears moving if there a little stiff from sitting.
I would pump up the tires and snatch up a used spindle for it and get it running.Shouldn't take much and you'll get a bit more for it if you can run it up on someones truck or trailer.As is you'll be really lucky to get $200 out of it even with 1/2 of a sleeve hitch on it.But if it runs and atleast rolls you can pretty much double that.
I would definitely try to get her running.Way to clean and complete to part out.Won't cost ya anything but a little time to clean the carb and points and a little gas in the tank if it's not rusty inside.If it will run snatch a spindle up for it and you should be able to get a a god bit more out of it.I would spend the $32 if I can make an extra $100+.It's a no-brainer lol.
Used Spindle $32 shipped
Lift leaver will move once you get the weight of the tractor off of the deck and shoot a little PB Blaster down the top of the handle around the button.
