OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!

For the first time since I discovered ATLTF about 4.5 years ago, my work is allowing images from the site!  It was part of the reason I waited so long to join.  Even though I read a lot of the forums, I just could not enjoy the site because of this and, I forgot to look again when I got home if a topic caught my eye.  It wasn't till later that I did catch the site again from home that I got hooked in for good 2 years almost exactly ago.  From there the rest is history!

We moved into a different house on Aug 30 2016. The old house had quite a few projects started and not finished. With work and life I never went over there to work or didn't stay to long if I did. Well during the tail end of this spring motivation  finally kick in, been over there everyday and spent some real time working each night. (That's why I've not posted on my build off mower all summer.) I got it to a good stopping point and had a realtor list it on Friday.
I have it priced lower than market value due to stuff not being completely done, and its connected to a little league field.
Just got word from my realtor that I had 2 offers made today. Its been on the market for 5 to 6 days, I can't believe it thought I'd be sitting on it for years.
I know in not out of the woods yet with it, but this really made my day.

How could afford to sit on that vacant house all these years?  I'm glad you sold it.

I understand.  A house unused can be a money drain.

one of our neighbors came by and needed some parts for his poulin rider, he didn't have any money so he offered a trade, it's got a few issues, the fuel tank was half ful of water and the carb needs worked on because of that, and the deck pulley was hitting the steering arm, but all we traded was a spindle for the deck and a discharge chute cover

it's got some damage on one corner, and the 6.5 briggs under the hood doesn't seem to mount up right, there's only 2 bolts holding it in, but the 3 speed tranny shifts through all the gears, the deck and blade are in really good shape, to be honest we can't decide what to do with this little guy, my niece wants it, she's 11, but our roommate wants to buy it to mow small yards with, and then there's the fact this could make an awesome little speedster which is actually what I thought of doing originally, but I do have my little jd rer I planned to build a street cart or race style mower out of, we could sell this one to our roommate and keep the big mower he was buying off us instead, I know my niece wants this one, but I think the little john deer would be good for her too, I can easily get another street cart chassis later on, or get my little 50cc e-ton 4 wheeler fixed for her to ride, if I could figure out what is wrong with it

I've been doing some research on the little toro, it's made between 70 and 73, it came with a 5hp briggs and has a peerless 352 transmission, the deck is only 25in and it comes stock with 13x5-6 rear and tiny little 11x4-5 front tires, i'd love to build it to be honest, but the steering needs some parts and I can't seem to find the parts needed to fix it, it's not safe to ride as is, the drag link comes off at the ball socket and it's not a part where I can simply replace the ball ends, if anyone knows where I can find parts for this i'd be most grateful for your help

I did that to Ol Red and I couldn't be happier with that fix. @darkside0914 You're going to have to get creative with replacement parts.  That thing is rare.

then I guess i'm going to have to figure out what's wrong with my welder, if this toro is a rare little tractor I will take the time and restore it I think, or do the best I can to restore it, an original 5hp briggs engine shouldn't be hard to get, or I can use a modern equivalent, this did have dual starting, both pull rope and electric start. i'm not going to be worried about being totally faithful to original, but I would like to come as close as I can I guess i'll fix it up and let my niece have my little john deer rer
