Well i finally picked up my first tractor after gaining some interest over the past few years. Overall seem to be in great shape, engine runs good, and with some minor tlc should be back to great condition soon. I have been looking for quite a while for one but most ive come across have been to far gone, priced to high, or out of reach for my mechanical ability. This one should fit the bill as i start down the path of learning ha. A few questions.....
1. Any thing major i should watch out for. Currently eveything seems pretty tight, but there is a some hydro fluid here and there but nothing "dripping".
2. Any leads on a gas cap and float? from pictures ive seen of other models there was a gauge, that is lacking on this one.
3. Any leads on a front blade? Ive talked to a guy on CL with one he said fit, but it needed and adapter. I have not come across any info on said adapter so im a little wary. Im in VA by the way.
4. Mower deck seems to be in good shape and runs fine, but it appears there was some sort of shoot on the end that may be missing by the empty holes. Any idea if its missing or are there just extra holes for some reason?
Thanks for the help guys, cant wait to dive in.
