Here's the one that got me into modifying tractors. I've been abusing and rebuilding this for 14 years now, if my memory serves me right. Pictures are as found, the first rendition, and its current configuration.
free for the taking

Repowered with a 28ci Briggs (25 head, enlarged oil return, double valve springs, port matched flo-jet, shaved eyebrows, no governor) 8/3.5 pulleys, Foote 4010 transaxle, lowered, solid-mount front axle, side-dump exhaust

Raised back up, repowered with a stroked 25ci Briggs, snorkel intake, full length stepped exhaust, center-bolt mounted front wheels, replaced the rear end with a Peerless 900 6 speed (locked and axle bearings added), direct steering, rack and bumper added

I had the same tractor as dangerous toys, a 5hp toro. Mowed with it, and made money with it. Did a pulley swap, but could still mow in first gear. Put on a 8hp engine, and pulley swapped the deck, it would throw grass 30 feet. Put a solid rear axle in it. This was all when I was around 14 or 15. It's been gone for years. Did a lot of off roading with it. Top speed was maybe 18mph?

Stretch, wasn't that the tractor you put the rope-actuated steering on back when we were messing around in the woods behind my parents?

Yep, steering gear broke, and used rope and steering wheel to turn wheels. Didn't work all that well. Eventually, I had Mom pick me up a new gear from dealership.

Stretch44875: i nearly bot this one 70's toro off a guy with a tractor junkyard where i used to buy parts from - said it looked just like mine, cept he put a 18HP twin on it and it still had the deck on it and mowed - i was REAL close to getting it - couldnt swing the $350 he wanted for it tho at the time.

Bet that thing ran super fast, in the guys spare time he built and raced lawntractors.

I got mine with broken steering gears as well - i bot parts off a junked toro from that tractor junkyard guy to get it to steer right - i figure if it ever breaks again, ill do a direct steering on it.

This is my first tractor, the first picture is it as a mudder, and the second is after hot-rodification! Murray Pro 18hp twin. Started as hydro, and is now a 6 speed.
