Well, accepting it is ok I guess.  I have found the left front of hood must have been pushed back, the flat tin upright behind that is some bent, and paint off the hood at seam there. Tried tweaking, not much give, so left alone.  Got the rear tire tubed, kept going down in garage. Be done with it till spring, then have to work on the deck's rollers in back. I've got her lubed and cleaned up and should be good to go next summer. I got a new amp guage and it works fine. Not sure why, but this tractor will not start w/out the guage in wiring. Doesn't seem to be main feed from battery, but maybe I'm wrong.

The ammeter has to be in line because the battery voltage to the ignition switch passes through it for the starter solenoid. These things are beasts.
