Long story short I bought this for the Engine.It has a perfect running Briggs 16hp V-Twin Vanguard with 877 engine hours on it.I got it for $225 delivered.

The PO dropped it off last night and I rode it around a bit this morning.Seems like a nice solid tractor.Tranny is smooth and the cruse control is a nice feature.Engine is Nice and smooth running and seems to have a alot of power.
It needs the front deck hanger welded back on to and a PTO belt be usable.

The steering has No play in it at all and all the tires look like new yet.

I think I may have to find another tractor for the project I need an engine for.This will make an excellent lawn mower for mowing.

I would like to get the Side panels and headlight assembly for it.And possibly another grill,the grill on it is BEAT.

I haven't given it a bath yet or worked on it in any way.She's pretty ugly but she'll be all better soon.:)

The transaxle in this thing is HUGE.I may look for a plow or Blower for on it.

Eric I have what you are looking for on the side panels and grill. Just finished gutting a 2185 for the command 18 that was in it. Shoot me a PM with your ph# and we can talk about this.

My brother in-law had a 2165 at the farm for years, cut 4 acres every week, with the lane and the front and side yards. They were tough, espicially if you seen how we would drive it. We check the level in our beer bottle before we checked anything on the tractor. Just kept going. Also had tonnes of power for the snowblower - 2 stage.

i wouldnt put a snowblower on it. we had a 2135 and we bought the snowblower brand new. all i have to say is that is rusted out so fast once exposed to salt you could hear it rusting at night, lol. these things arent built like they used to be. the old narrow and wide frames can take the abuse because they are a solid gauge steel, now they are little more than tin
