Used the pressure washer this past weekend to remove 30 years of gunk from this thing. Also replaced the front wheel bearings and PTO bearings. Tossed a new set of PTO belts on while I was at it. Hoping to have my mower deck on this weekend to try it out. Had to replace all the pins and weld up quite a few cracks in the deck itself.

That does look good! Looks like the layer of 30 years of gunk protected it nicely. Any pics of what you've done with the deck?

No I didn't take any pictures of the deck. The left side was rotted out so I welded a few patches in and also welded up a bunch of cracks near the mounting brackets in the rear and one crack at the very front where it was splitting apart. I've got all new deck hangers and pins ready to go. Hopefully I'll have it all together and mowing this weekend.
