If it wasn't for that plastic dash... :(

Seriously kinda like it, engine in gray primer may be a factory replacement,states snowblower ,see brackets for 2 stage springs... unusual for that late of a model to have the sundial hour meter,(if it is a '87) hood scoop and cowl induction fan probably good for 2-3 more mph, it may give a HDT1000 a run, if it was closer... more I look at it the more I like it...Seriously

Looks good!

Paint doesn't make the engine, or tractor worth more. The scoop is for the electric fan added, and personally, I wouldn't buy it.

Power steering is a +

The plastic dash on my HT23 is all busted up. I plan to adapt an aluminum dash from a 1050 parts tractor that I have. It looks the same size. Good Luck, Rick

I would question the addition of the electric fan

I don't see it providing any benefit the way is mounted


I would think if you have cleaned  the shrouds,engine fins

and flywheel fins it should cool just fine

What's the point in the electric fan?  Looks like to me, it would actually impede cooling.  The flywheel is blowing air in the front, and it would rise up and out of the shroud.  If that fan is blowing down, it is going to blow the heated air right back down on the engine.  If it is setup to pull, that would be slightly beneficial, but it is going to bake the operator in the summer.
