That looks identical to my 127 condition wise when I picked it up.They are great machines.

After I dumped $400 into mine rebuilding the engine,PTO,wiring and paint mine looks like a new one.I have yet to fire it up after a complete rebuild but it should last another 40 or so years.I'm having trouble locating 30 weight oil for in her.There isn't a quart to be found in a 15 mile radius of me.Plenty of 10-30,10-40 oil.10-30 is to thin to run in the summer.I don't want to chance blowing it up because of thin oil.

Mine has a fresh .010 over block,fresh .010 piston and rings,new crank and std rod with new shims and gasket kit for the block and rebuilt carb.Small block chevy points conversion with Accel 1.4 OHM GM racing coil with internal resistor.She should run pretty strong after I get her broke in.

I love this machine i need a seat and a front grill The engine has not ran in years and has a tapping sound i am concerned about but i think it may just be the lifters i will see what some seafoam will free them up

trading a cheaply built bic lighter mtd ridding lawnmower for a solid, cast iron miniature farm tractor IH isnt a bad deal at all. the mtd will be resigned to the junk yard and the cub cadet will still be going
