ok, lets start with a story first shall we?
a few weeks ago my buddy bill (billthetractorman) sent me an email with pictures of a 68 super, so i looked but didnt really have the money, but bill wanted it (saying this almost kills me) to steal parts from for his SS12 but he didnt have any money either (for other reasons i dont know about :banghead3) so I somehow gathered the money to buy it (300). i went and picked it up today and it came with a 48in deck, a white snow thrower, wheel weights (bill says he wants them lol) the original muffler with a bonus cup of corn inside lol and other odds and ends. It runs farily well for running on old gas but does need some help.
here are pictures to show you how good of a condition this thing is in.

The white pieces in your last photo are the mulch kit that goes in the mowing deck. I have only ever seen those pieces in a parts catalog. Those are a real good find. I would be interested in dimensions of those pieces if you have some time to measure them up. I have an SS12 of the same year that I wish was in that good of condition. Mine has been well used for many years. Thanks for posting pictures and keeping the tractor together. You will enjoy it.

Here is a photo out of my manual for the 42" rotary mower. When I get my scanner up and running again I will scan the whole manual in and save it in the manual section on this site. 0629110909.jpg I hope this helps you with the placement of the mulch kit on your mower.

I would try putting a couple of ounces of Marvel Mystery oil in the spark plug hole and let the engine sit for a few days. This may help un-stick the rings if they really are stuck.

well, I had put some regular 10-40 in the cylinder last night and this morning it had all leaked down the intake valve and leaked in to the carb bowl lol so I drained all that out and got it fired up. I went out to mow the front yard and made a few passes and then a wood pecker somehow got in the engine. Where do I got from here? I dont have the money to uy n ew parts but I do have anohter really worn out HH120 I could pull the internals out off for my 68? Any comments or proposals?
