1955 RJ-35

I bought this on Ebay a few years ago. The seller took a crappy picture of it and hardly nobody bid on it. So I scarfed it! It has the original mower deck too in good shape, I usually have it mounted. I'll keep this one in original condition as usual....

Here is my early production RJ35. Made probably in the 2nd batch of 1955 tractors, not in the first 100 produced. Has the cast iron steering wheel, gas tank stand and some other early production parts. I added the non original Kohler engine but it should be a Clinton engine. bth_017-2.jpgbth_018-4.jpg

These are some photos of my 1955 RJ-35 that I purchased earlier this year from RedSquare member fireman (Jeff).

      Picked this up today and I'm very happy with it!! Early 1956 RJ35 with cast iron steering wheel. Down the road I will be tiring this into a 1955 RJ! Thanks Shawn!! What does everyone think? Definitely a project but definitely a restoreable one!

      Got a problem with an rj35 I'm restoring.  After almost 2 years I'm finally able to ride it.
      So during that first ride I manage to get a rear wheel hooked on a cedar plant.
      Next thing I know I'm doing donuts around this shrub because I can't disengage the transmission. 
      Also my left leg is perilously close to getting caught under the rear wheel so I can't use the break.
      After  about six laps I finally get the engine to stall - not sure how to be honest - and now of course I can't get the rj started again.
      There is no spark.  I've pulled the fly wheel looking for any signs of trauma and there are none.
      Spark plug wire shows no damage, coil looks good same for flywheel. 
      I've spun the flywheel with a plug grounded on the block and there is definitely no spark.
      Really not sure where to go from here. 
      I could pull the coil from another K90 I guess but don't really want to as it's a complete engine too.
      Thoughts??

      Hello, just wondering if anybody has an early style 1955 RJ35 lift handle they want to sell? Mine has the gas tank stand so those early lift handle's are the old style I need. Thank you! Keith
