Thanks guys, for all the congrats, comments.
I've been so busy at work here, for the last few days, that I've only been able to throw her the occasional glance.
Hope to soon, have the time to take her top off, and look for the ID tag. It sure would be nice to know how old
she is.

I know I know, I am behind on many fronts.... and just getting farther behind, I keep stepping over the transaxle (and many other projects), mabey I will finish opening it...

If it is any consolation I haven't gotten any of my projects accomplished yet this year....

Will check the AGCO parts books, there are early and late models, lots of parts were changed, should be able to track down weather yours is early or late.
They made 6000 early ones, how many late models???

Found the tag.
Looked there, and it's a late model. Ser#6665 So I guess that makes it a 65, as PO said?

Then the seat looks to be right, late model, check the engine mounts should be solid.

Definitely an awesome find. In fantastic condition.
Does the cigarette lighter work?


Haven't tried yet. I'll find a cigar to puff, if it does.

Well I got tired of looking at the Cat yellow touch up job someone had done,
And, being it wasn't original because of that Cat paint, I decided to give it
the 1 hour makeover. This winter, I will tear it all down, and do the deserved
resto, but in the mean time, I figured $13 worth of MF yellow paint would
make her look pruty'r.
I'm glad I did it. It looks like new, if you use the 30 foot viewing rule.
I like that yellow colour. Lookin forward to the winter project.

Can't find any reference to carter carbs in the Kohler service manuals.

Where would one find
Carb kits for those Carter N carbs.
I've looked a bit, but no luck.
I'd like to have one on hand.
