i picked it up a couple of years ago and went through it. the engine was excelent, as was the tranny and other important parts. the mower deck was in pretty bad shape rust and tweak wise, but ended up coming back fine.
the tractor was already a faded tremclad yellow when i ended up with it, didn't want to go through the whole re-redding thing so i decided to throw a proper glow of yellow at it. i'm a cat guy, and only cat yellow would do the trick:worshippy1:
here she is when i recieved it:
here she is last summer after here dinner:smile1:
she does a pretty good job and gets used quite a bit around the homestead and hasn't givin me amy problems or complaints about the work i've thrown at her.

i would have brought it back to red if it wasn't so much trouble. and didn't have a few gallons of cat yeller lying around:D but i've had a few red horses and thought it would be nice to see a different hue on one for a change.
the muffler is off of a honda goldwing. still has the baffle in there and has a nice sound. quieter than stock also.

Or refer to it as your "Palomino" Horse.

Looks pretty good in Cat Yellow. At least when you have it in a herd of Horses, you know which is yours.:rofl2:
Now where did I park my...........
I think it looks good, looks mean. I like Cat yellow because of having their heavy duty diesels.
