Need to sell or trade. Bought from the original owner.
Very good running and looking tractor but needs finished.
Many New parts installed.
This is a Replacement engine with Zero cylinder wear and No balance gears.
Fuel pump leaked internally and washed out the Points lobe on the Camshaft, the Oil rings and the PTO side Crankshaft bearing.
Crankshaft journal miced out to 1.4995. It is within New STD spec of 1.4995-1.5000.
Installed New STD Piston, New Rings, New Connecting rod, (Used but very good condition Cam shaft, spacers and cam pin) New Fuel pump, 12v Coil, Points, Ballast resistor.
4 new engine cradle ISO mounts, 2 new drive belts. cleaned and adjusted variator, new OEM fuel cap with gauge.
Adjusted valves, flushed fuel system. Included is another brand new STD connecting rod and 1 new set of OEM Kohler STD rings.
Starts easy and runs out ok with points set down to 0.018 but has a noticeable knock if set to .020 because the PTO side crank bearing needs replaced.
Deck has new blades and runs super quiet. It mows very very nice. Don't think the Plow was used but a couple times untill I got it. It has no wear on the cutting edge or skids. Tires are All original and in very good condition. No dry rot which is amazing.
I need to get $650 for it. I have a good bit more than that in it. Or partial trade for a dependable running, mowing lawn tractor with 46"-50" deck with towing capabilities. Might trade even up Depends on the machine.
I need a GOOD Dependable mowing machine.
She's a very good looking tractor. Just needs a PTO side crank bearing but I would replace both. I ran out of funds and time to get this one 100%.
It starts easy and runs out smooth and does not knock at any RPM even under load with the points closed up tighter. I mowed with it twice since putting it back together and it does a great job but it should really have new bearings installed and the points opened back up. It is down on power slightly because the points are closed up tighter than what they should be.
Located. New Paris, Bedford County Pennsylvania.
