What to do with it. Great question. Right now I am hoping to get it up to par. Tractor was parked because shifter is super sloppy. Here is what I have done so far. Power washed tractor, it was 40 degrees outside. My wife and neighbors think I am crazy. Drained and replaced engine oil, guessing it was5 or more years old. Drained all the fuel. Looks like a new fuel line is in order. Pulled seat pan, to get access to shifter and transaxle, drained transaxle oil, probably first time that has ever happened. I pulled shifter and found out the roll pin was broken. Replaced it but the shifter cone took some abuse from the damage. Looks like I might have to gamble on an eBay replacement. I pulled battery, as of now it is dead so it is hooked up to a 2 amp charger. Doubtful It will be able to revive. Both battery cables looked so nasty, not worth saving, built some new replacements. It looks like at some point some sort of purple sticky substance has dribbled all over the seat. Spent about an hour cleaning it up, seat is in really good shape now. Took the cutting bar off of the dozer/push blade. It is worn out. I have a woven plastic material I pulled out of the plastic dumpster at work. It is what NASCAR race cars use to make the front splitters out of. 1/2 inch thick and tough as hell. Duplicated the bar, and just need new hardware to install it.
The mower deck has a tag, 59730 12842. It is need of new belts badly. Hopefully I can source them. I have no other pictures as of yet. So excited to dive in, never took pictures.
