Guy came yesterday and bought a machine. We had to deliver it locally and charged for it of course. His trade in actually runs once battery was charged and everything works so far. A LT1000 with opposed twin Briggs. His biggest complaint was it will not hot re start, bad magnteo. We have a new magnteo in stock as it seems to be common issue.

Hope to hit it with buffer later, left pressure washer out as we knew we were bringing it home.

Olddeere our thought also! Going to work on it soon. Might not even need to paint deck, someone painted side panels of dash. They painted right over decals.

Found the magneto was actually hitting flywheel, one source of noise. The engine tin was not as bad as I thought. The muffler shield hit as well. This appears to be a engine swap from a MTD as the wiring and muffler studs on sump look same. Think they swapped engine tins over from dead engine. Starter or weak battery make for no starting in this cold weather. Buffed it out yesterday and came out good! Tried to start it this morning to slow cranking.

Found it cranking hard like high amp draw. Checked wiring and found bad starter. We had one in stock and swapped it. I was too hammer happy and knocked a couple magnets off flywheel. We had another spare so swapped flywheel out. Dad will glue the magnets back on and return it to parts. Now it fires good. The fan on flywheel must be wrong one for tins and it hits slightly, will look into fixing it. Thank God it now easy to move for possible nor'easter cleanup tomorrow!

Changed fuel line and dad finished deck. The engine sump leaks oil so needs addressing. Dad has to remove engine on it yet

As dad was re installing the engine I received a call from a tire kicker from a few weeks ago. Guy showed with his young boy and kid threw rocks into yard ticking me off, only reason I remember him! So used to folks saying they call back or will buy never to return again. Well he wants a twin cylinder and the one he wanted is long sold! Told him dad was in process of repairing this one. Well guy came around 4 and bought it and traded in TWO Craftsman!? They both run but rough. Dad gave him $200 off for it and think dad made out ok with asking price of this Craftsman with the new parts in it.

Odd to sell one without add!
