affraid Hey guys. Some of you might know that i have my own welding shop. Well i cleaned the shop last week and hauled in 1400 lbs of scrap crap in to my local recycling yard. While i was pulling my truck back on the scale to weigh, i spotted a Craftsman lawn tractor sitting off to the side. I went into the office and asked the owner (of the yard) what he would have to have for the mower. He said they usually just cut them up. Again i asked how much? He said ,"How does 25 Cents a lb sound?" I said sold! The mower was mine And i brought home $50.00 to boot My buddy that was with me said " I cant take you anywhere,"LOOK! SOMETHING SHINY!!)  Anyway, got it home. its a craftsman lt1000 12.5 hp briggs ic gold. I had to put a gear on the starter, put a drain plug in (cause they drained the oil out and tossed the plug) filled it with new oil, cleaned the spark plug, put a battery in it out  of one of my other tractors, of corse some gas and bingo,, it started and ran like a new one!! My  buddy couldnt believe it. HE spent 20 minutes cleaning it up!! So now i have three

Fantastic! You gotta like a deal like that.

To get around the wife, I told her MULE was hers. She continues to believe it. Free pass! LOL
