That should take care of it. Interesting frame on that thing. The engine sits pretty low.

it is a bit of a strange chassis if that's what you can call it...lol.. I was thinking of flipping the trans and raising the motor so pullies/belt run inside of body so I can get the tractor lower but not sure if its possible.

Hi matt
yes it is in good condition for its age and having a metallic red paintwork is rare I should think, it had a 12hp B&S in it that I have now in my westwood but still trying to decide what I do next with it , I quite fancy ratting it low and wide
