it runs great, no smoke tons of power. but the clutch doesnt exactly stop it or slow it down, infact i was in reverse low, and i plowed into the dodge =( i only left a scratch, but it should buff out with ANY luck. and she didnt loose traction either. the deck is an animal when i get the clutch either adjusted or what im gonna mow the lawn. the blades are like new.

mows like a dream. took on foot high grass in high first. didnt even bog it down. and the clutch was just sticky. pushed it in and out for 10 mins and it worked.

Sounds like you've got it all worked out. Should bring a good price or a nice trade deal.

Congrats on making it a survivor!

Almost sounds like that loader is going to have to wait for a while.

well i cant afford a loader and an engine rebuild on the ht20. ill use the engine alot more than the loader. so honestly, me and a buddy whos taking a mechanic vocational course are gonna rebuild. and if i have some leftovers depending on what i need and dont need, i might buy a 3 point from sams. plus i hear kwiw way loaders arent exactly that good, but a loader is a loader.

and if it didnt run, is hit it with the dodge and scrap it before selling it to lowballers.

Glad you got it going. Yeah, those clutches stick if let set too long, but really hook up good when working right.

I don't have a creeper, so I honestly can't say. I do have a Sears with hi/lo trans. and it is a real PITA to change. Probably due to not using it much.
