The day I brought it home..a block down from my house with a free sign..motor mounts went bad and took out all the shear pins and the deck was shot

Started with the engine and deck pull..got everything cleaned up, new air filter, fuel filter, gas line, ran new bolts for engine mounts, bypassed safety switches, and rebuilt carb.

After finishing the engine I then dropped the differential and replaced the shear keys that were bad.

I figured since I had the differential out I would do a pully swap and decided to put a 4 inch on the back making it a 1:1 ratio

After a few good romps and durability tests I decided it was ready for more upgrades

Started stripping badges getting it ready for paint

Fresh paint moved the rear tires to the front of the machine with extended spindels and got some garden tractor tires for rear

You might want to upgrade to a higher quality rear pulley... those cast aluminum ones will wear through, and it will take your belt with it when it goes.

I really like the yellow clutch pedal cover and your running boards. Not too bad for a freebie.
