Any time you can save a horse from the glue factory for scrap...are you kidding me. We want pictures. :) I have saved a couple that way and now they are like brand new.

I saved this one a few years ago...no way it was going to be glue...

Ok here it is. Way to nice for the scrap pile. 30 mins of work and it runs like a top.

The only things i can find wrong is the key switch doesnt turn the ingnition on and the when the pto is off the bearing is loud. The deck has a small hole in it but the spindles seem good. Couple of seals leak in the trans but after 45 years that aint bad.
