I came across a good parts tractor for my 1977 sears garden tractor.I use it for all my mowing and fall clean up.So far as I can tell it has a good deck,good transaxle,and a decent running engine.

And wheel weights! Parts tractors are very handy as these things get older, can't just get parts anywhere.

Previous owner said belt would not stay on mower, belt retainer for double stack pulley missing and no longer available.Went to e-bay and found a new old stock one,lucky.Clutch spring for drive too strong,ordered right one.Carb. had to be cleaned and a new fuel line.I should be able to cut with it in a week or so.This was a $1300-$1400 tractor 37 years ago and it is still earning it's keep.

A backup or parts tractor is priceless! That one looks pretty good.

After two carb.cleanings and a good fuel tank flush running good.Gear oil looked like a moca shake.New plug,oil and muffler I had in my parts.Tossed out seat cover,not knowing what was living in it and painted steel pan.New belt guide worked good but one on deck too wide .Ruined belt before I noticed it,now modified.Cut lawn without any further problems.Wire brushed major rust areas and primed.It will be back up and parts mach. as needed.

It's so much fun to see the kids having a good time. The smiles are so heart warming. Thanks for the photos!

My biggest problems with cranking up motors after winter I am sure is tied to the use of gasohol.
