  1. I suspect the 29585 serial belongs to a ST-375 snowthrower.

      Only problem is, snow thrower is only 32 inches wide.

    I'm at it again. As stated in a earlier post, I made it to Portland IN for the Tri State Gas Engine & Tractor Show. While there I got my Lawn Ranger dozer blade. But in route I stopped in Marengo OH and bought a 1964 Jacobsen Chief 800 w/36" deck. (Had to have a donkey in my herd.) Than from the show I went North to Ft Wayne/Leo, IN and bought my 704 w/36" deck. This was a 546 mile round trip. If you have never been to the Tri State Show, it is well worth the trip, lots of tractors, parts and crafts for the wife. A lot of WH's to see. But take a pair of boots; it gets muddy if it rains. This was the Aug show and am told the spring time show is more Lawn/Garden equipment. I plan to go next spring. This week I went to Somerset, VA to get my bucket list tractor, the 1964 1054. It was a 744 mile round trip. This tractor runs strong had no attachments but was well worth it.

    Welcome to the 520 Club

    Just realized there was a 520 club. I recently purchased a 1995 520H with 48" deck and a Snow Thrower. Working on replacing wiring connections that are corroded, and redoing seat. He just needs a good rubdown & some sugar cubes. My Mares (see profile pics) love him. Otherwise great running tractor. Can't wait to try out the Snow Thrower this winter. Love the sound of that Onan. Just a thought, if more clubs were added, make them by the model years. ie '64' Club.
  4. I also drive tanker out of Canton. North Canton Transfer. Small world.

    I live over near New London.

    I have a collection of about a dozen.

    I’ll be at the New London Show July 27-29.

    Hope to see you there.

    Road Trips are no biggie for me. I drive 18 wheeler tanker within 250 mile radius of Canton, OH. But I can't haul WH in a tanker. My wife & I have made several WH road trips. OH to State College, PA 250 miles for a 1986 417-8 with a 12HP Kohler to put in it. 100 miles across OH for my 1964 34R. 1 day trip 12 hours, OH to Niles, MI N of South Bend, IN 355 miles; yes we went past the old factory. For 2 32" snow throwers, 60's models. For 34R parts went to Rittman, OH 57 miles. Another OH trip 234 miles 1 way for my 1970 Raider 10. 360 miles to Vinton, VA to pick up my 1995 520H & Mower & Snow Thrower. Soon to Portland, IN tractor show 230 miles to pick up dozer blade & mower for 34R. Seems crazy but I love the drives and seeing old country I used to drive years ago. Building up my collection to rebuild into my retirement years. My 2003 315-8 I bought new was only 30 miles away. I traded a 1978 C-141 I grew up with for 25 years as part of the deal, now wished I would have kept it. Didn't have WH fever as I do now. Pics in my profile.

    Lawn ranger mower deck

    could you post a picture of the lawn ranger deck
  7. I am 5-6 hours north of you in Ohio. I would drive down and pick up this package deal. Does the snow thrower have the chute crank and flag lift bar? Would you consider $1000.00 cash?Robert R.
  8. No, that is the wrong mount. The mount on the mower I need is for low profile frame. It is similar to the RJ decks. I need the Lawn Ranger 32". RM114, 115 116 or 117; for 1962-1967 years. Thanks for showing me. Trying to find the deck to buy complete but cant get any responses back on the ones I have found.

    Hey Kit Kat the fuel tank will work, may try to extend the neck but as is, it is workable. Engine matches up; Tecumseh changed the recoil setup but the cover is same size as mine. Had good time meeting you and visiting; Thank You for the parts and showing me your herd of horses.

    The IPB for 34R & pics I have found looks like maybe extended neck. Does the cap go above your hood when tank is up against bottom of hood, seems as though it should work. The deck I am looking for would be the rounded and not squared sides. Seems that You have a variety of parts and attachments; would I be able to shop around if I can come up there. I Have a H60 that I need throttle plate and linkages & recoil starter for. I am off this tues wed & thurs.

    That's the type hood I have & mine is good. Do you have the extended spout type tank? I am about 60 miles from you. Didn't realize my map was messed up, thanks for letting me know I fixed it. Would you happen to have the LR 32" mower deck RM113 (115,116,or 117). Also looking for the hitch Part# 4904.

    I would be interested in the third tank. Need one for a 1964 34R Lawn Ranger part #2676. How much would you want? I could pick it up. The 2nd one looks close; just that the cap looks too close to the edge for my hood.

    Lawn Ranger Mowing Deck

    Is this the type deck with flat bar that hooks to frame rails? Is it still available? If so could you send me a pic at rtruck200826@aol.com. I am 6 hrs away in OH I would come and pickup. Would you take $75. Or if you want to trade I have a 36 In, believed to be 1968, 5-1361 deck; needs a patch on front. pic in my gallery. Also has clutch pedal and idler.
