    1973 No Name 12HP Auto

    Here's the wiring off the solenoid. One of the wires has broken off the connector. And here's what the switch for the clutch pedal looks like, though I'm not sure if it's still wired up, I didn't feel any wires coming off of it from the back. And it's a bit hard to look at it at the moment, as it's surrounded by other mowers.

    1973 No Name 12HP Auto

    Hey, sorry, I've been busy the last few days. It is still for sale. It does have a safety switch on the pedal. I'll try and get a picture it and the solenoid wiring tomorrow.

    1963 953 with Deck

    I have a 1963 953 with deck. The engine is free and turns over when a battery is hooked up, but it and the wiring need to be completely gone through. Deck is pretty solid, does need some work. $150 OBO, I might be able to deliver it for a fee depending on distance. Call, text, email, or PM.

    Pickup Bed Winch

    Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. Life has been a bit nuts. It works great. The only thing I'm going to change is I'm going to wire it into the truck battery, the small one dies too quickly.

    Guy on my local Craigslist is selling a "Wheel Horse C-120 Lawn Tractor -Field Find" for best offer. I'm going to offer $50.

This mower will be sold in one week. If you want to email an offer that's great, I will consider it.

    Considering Buying a 270 Hydro With Thrown Rod

    $150 The front already looked like that.

    Considering Buying a 270 Hydro With Thrown Rod

    It looks pretty much identical to the 419XT I got to flip and I love that thing. (Except that there's some electrical fault that's causing the PTO to not engage reliably) So I'd get this fixed to be the mower, then the 312 can be the trailer hauler and snowblower machine, and the Raider 10 can be the snow/dozer blade machine. Who knows what the 953 and 1973 no-name will end up being.
  10. On my local Craigslist, there's a 270 Hydro with a bad engine. Everything else apparently works, and it looks in good shape. Includes the deck, not sure what size. The guy is asking $200. I'd try and talk him down to $150. Do you guys think it's worth grabbing?

    Pickup Bed Winch

    Now that I have a pickup again, I started looking into ways to easily load tractor finds into the bed instead of having to drag a trailer around.I stumbled across this (http://www.toyloader.com/) and thought that looked like a good idea. But not worth $600. So I made my own. (Well, my dad ended up doing the welding and metal work. He enjoys it.) The steel ended up being free since my dad got drops from work, but if I had to by it, it probably would have been around $25 from a metal store that sells drops by the pound.The winch was $50, the battery was free from a junk mower, the box was $4, $10 for the connectors, $10 for the pins, $5 for the winch plate. So I spent around $80, but buying everything would put the cost around $140 or so. Haven't had a chance to test it yet.

    953 Aquired

    953 Aquired

    Finally started doing some work on it. I pulled the steering shaft so I could extract the broken bolts. I got lucky and they came out easy. I'll get some new bolts tomorrow, grease it up, and put it back in. And that's probably about all I'll have time for right now. I needed to get the steering fixed so I can get it out of the driveway and work on the other mowers that I need to get fixed and sold. One question, is the electrical system a negative ground 12 volt system? I know I probably won't be able to get into trying to start it for awhile but I'd like to know for when I do.

    953 Aquired

    Posted about seeing this last summer, finally got it. For free in fact. Definitely needs some work. Steering isn't working, wires are broken, tires are probably shot, hydraulics leak, and it's rusty. It came with a custom blade and a mower deck (not pictured). Still deciding whether I'm going to try and fix it or the 1973 12 Auto. Or both of them.
