Hey, everyone, I call my tractor Frankenstein because it has been brought back to life 6 separate times by me. I didn't get any pictures of the build process/rebuilds because I had no idea about this website! I have no clue what year or model my tractor is all i know is its a craftsman with a 15.5hp and 6 speed manual it used to be green and had a different hood that got destroyed in one of many crashes. I have had this for about 8 months now and so far I have done an engine swap (stayed with the 15.5) I changed the back tires to taller ones (off an old JD), fabbed a lift for the front axle to level it with the rear, pully swap, fabbed a front bumper, removed most mowing deck parts, bypassed all the safety nonsense. I took it out on the ice today for a long ride, about 1 hour total non-stop at full throttle with no issues, and have decided to build a dedicated "ice mower" for going out to my huts to go fishing. If you have any ideas let me know!

Thank you! It certainly is a survivor lol The previous owner must have painted over the sticker or removed it as there is nothing anywhere on the tractor. Going to go into my tractor grave yard and see if i have one thats close with a number also going to pull one out to start the ice mower build!
