this is what the Ward looked like before i tore it down. i was originally using it for parts for my 02 mtd but i realized this was the better tractor.

this is what it looks like now. at this point i put the dash console thing back on, reassembled the front axle and steering and did some stuff at the back.

this is the back. this tractor originally had the gas and the battery in the hood but i switched it around. i took the rear frame piece off my mtd and swapped out the one from the montgomery. i then took the seat off the mtd and put it on also.

this is the ward before i swapped the mtd frame part and seat in

this is what it looked like back in 1987. I took this pic off the owners manuel, which i do have.

this is just a side view of how it is at this current moment


hopefully today i will be able to put in the transaxle and put some wheels on the front.

sice im putting the gastank in the hood i need to find a different engine. im looking for anything that isnt a twin and has at least 12.5 horse power.

i will post more pics asap

Use the ads for selling please, and you can't think it's 12hp if you wanna sell it...
