Snagged this off Facebook marketplace for $100.  Came with mower deck(not frozen and pretty solid overall), 12 hp Kohler that was supposed to have been rebuilt around 5 years ago, then the project just sat, so basicly no hours of use.  She needs a proper fuel tank that lines up with the hood opening and the plastic cup holder/tray that goes in the RH fender top.  Plan to get her going mechanicaly with paint to follow next year.  Gonna be my "yard" tractor that sits out under a tarp or under the tree for now.  Also has massive amount of "play" in the steering box, I did trace it back to the box itself.  I will pump it full of grease(feels dry) and adjust the nut a bit, but I bet its going to have to be replaced/rebuilt.  Trans feels good, detents feel good as it shifts into each gear.  Should be neat, you do not see many of this series at the local shows, older Massey MF series, yes.  The 1200 series...not so much.    Mike
