Here's the tag for it. Looks like a 1989 tractor from what I have found. I do know the deck was replaced with a newer 48" unit.

Thanks! It's in slow mode right now, needing a few things to finish it. But it was fun to drive it!

I got it out and just drove it around. Forward speed is impressive! Still have a creep issue, hoping driving it will help that, but I have the TM for it now.

Well, I just bought the stator for this engine. <$18 to the door. Now to find a flywheel cheap. Been driving it around. Creep is getting better, it's mainly when using the brake. So an adjustment may fix it.

I was bored this morning so I wired in the second hour meter. This one is for the engine as it came off that machine. About 487 hr's. on the clock. Pretty simple to do. Had to first make a bracket to hold it. Just wired it parallel to the original.

While I have these pics, a question about the stator/ regulator. Should I use the reg./rectifier on the engine or use the one for the 265? I can hook the stator wires into the JD harness, that connector is just below the hour meter. The JD rectifier has 6 wires on it, that's what feeds a lot of the existing wiring. I have a stator coming, still need a flywheel with magnets.

Since the F725 uses the same ignition switch, I borrowed it for this tractor. No more jumper wires!

Scooped up the deck with the FF20 and fork lift! It needed some cleaning.

Looks better and I put 15 squirts of grease into each spindle.

I'll pull the blades when I mount the deck and sharpen them a bit. Not too bad right now.

Thats a lot of grease in the spindles, too much will blow the seals out then shorten the bearing life. I usually put in two pumps.

Sorry not much of a wiring/electrical guy. Deck looks to be in decent shape.

They probably haven't been greased in the last 4 years!

Found some tubing that fits the exhaust, so I started working on the muffler. I started it and it is much quieter with this.

I'll plug off the original inlet and move the mount to a vertical position when the wind calms down for welding.
