Going to start a new thread for my latest tractor. I still don't have the serial # for it. I should before the end of the week. I believe it is an early to mid 90's Craftsman GT. Pretty close to the GT6000, heck it may be the precursor. Not sure when Craftsman with with the 6000, 4000, 1000, etc. series tractors. I'll update the title when I know more.
Here is a look of it's current state. It needs a Grill and a breather tube. That's about all I see. The starter will either need be cleaned up or changed out. It is spinning pretty good, just not engaging. I'm figuring at this time it needs a cleaning. Also look into a new flywheel fan and screen. The hood got into the fan and rubbed off the nubs for a screen.
That's pretty much what I see initially. Was told it ran... we all know how that is. It does have good compression and good new oil in it. Oil does not smell of gas. Tank was empty, hopefully they ran it out and not leak. Tank did not smell of varnish. Deck PTO appeared to work, it clicked when turned on and off.
Plan for this beast?
I'm thinking of a mild resto-mod. Full tear down and repaint. I would like to redo the stickers, but clickitandstickit doesn't have this model's stickers. I do plan on keeping it a mower this time. Other than missing some plastic pieces, it is in great shape. Spindles even turn smoothly! Could use a little grease.
