    Old stuff.
  1. Jim, Its a Kohler, with an updraft carb setup like the 633's had. don't see that exhaust arrangement often however. I'm pretty fond of my 953. Just a big sweet machine! David PS If its good and you're not gonna use it, I am interested in that gas tank and mounting hardware?
  2. Apple Country show pictures

    Richard, The unknown tractor is a Mayrath. not many of them around. That looks to be an excellent example. Thanks too for sharing. May have to put this one on our list. David

    Don't know why but I just noticed this.

    The hood will be supported in the front and pivot on exactly the same arrangement as your 855. Welcome David

  7. 701 solenoid and regulator

    MY bad, sorry everyone!!!
  8. 701 solenoid and regulator

    Not to muck up the works and maybe I'm wrong here, but there was no solenoid, just a momentary switch? Along with the two prong two wire ignition switch? Am I missing something? It should be the same as a 953, right?

  10. A wheel horse and it's new friend

    Greg, I really enjoy the pictures of the 1045, my 2 don't get worked at all , but the wife's 845 stays hooked to the cart. Thanks for sharing, David
  11. Ignition Switch Replacement Commando 8?

  12. RJ and early suburban seat springs

  14. RS-83

    Selling my RS-83. PO told me that the engine has been rebuilt, it does have NEW wheels and tires on both ends. The rears are 1/2" wider than the originals, the fronts are the correct 3X12' welded to the original centers and spokes. It does not have a steering wheel that fits and I am sure there are miscellaneous parts missing (this was a frame and boxes of parts when I bought it). You should assume that it needs everything except wheels and tires. I do. Delivery to the Lawn & Garden Tractor Extravaganza at no charge. We will also be attending a few other shows, PM or call for details.
