Hi--I just picked up a David Bradley tractor, 917.5756 with a Continental motor. It is missing the air cleaner, gas tank and handlebar grips. Anybody have anything? Thanks, Bill

Must be a walk behind with that engine. I can't help with anything but the grips. I can find new grips much like ones on yours at good flea markets. What OD is the tube the grips slide onto?

I have 2 DB's with Continental Engines, One AU7 and One AU8...Great Running Engines...I was missing some parts when i got them and they are very hard to come by unless you stumble upon someone who dosen't know what they have....Guys that know what they have & how rare they are are slow to part with them and want a lot of $$$$$...The Gas Tank & grips are a relatively easy find, they were allmost all the same but the engine parts are tough, the only place I was able to find them was on Ebay .... Good Luck

I have the Continental powered DB's in my collection and Dan is right, hard to find other than ebay. The Continental gas tank is unique in that it has raised rings on the ends as opposed to smooth like the Briggs tanks on the DB's.
