There was a guy today at the local tractor show selling a trailer load of gravely parts, attachments, and a couple walk behinds. I bought the mostly complete one for $75 and a reel mower attachment for $40. The seller says it's from the 1940s. The motor has compression and rolls fine. Tank seems to be in good shape. Tomorrow after work ill get more pictures (9/18/17). I wasn't able to buy more today but I do have the guy's number and can get more. He wants to sell everything.

I'm completely new to Gravely. What model / year is the walk behind and reel mower attachment?

Awesome! Thanks for pointing to me that website.  :thumbs:  Believe I found the model & year for the mower and tractor. Looks to be a 1964 Model L.

I think it's earlier that 64.  the oil bath air cleaner and the front casing are the clues.  Did you get the front PTO cover with the tractor.  I think that is for a front cart ( hard to see in picture) and is worth the $75 you paid for the tractor

Heres more pictures. I've already started taking it apart to clean it and see how bad the motor is. Motor seems fine but definitely needs new gaskets. The WICO coil is in rough shape. What can I use to clean inside the coil?

It's a cultivator I think. Front broke off and it had the cover still on the gravely.

No way! That plate I found under the motor is a "heater block".  :rocker2:
