Re: Gravely 85th anniversary edition 20G
The original Robin Subaru 20.5hp had a valve guide drop out of the head. These are first design heads. They have a second design head. The PO took the head to get it fixed and because of the time and needing to use it he bought the new Predator engine. He later advertised the Robin Subaru with adapter plate for sale. I wanted the adapter plate. Checked and he lived close to my brother in PA. So I had my brother go pick it up. When my brother brought the motor to me at the 2016 Mow-in and started telling me about the 20G and said it looked different! I tried to describe the later oval decals and finally said "was it black" brother said yeah. I could believe that I had a motor off a 85th. So later I started contacting the PO and after several months I finally got the tractor. It's very clean with only 423 hours. It's a shame it was used but if it hadn't been I would have never got it. I'm going to get it cleaned up and back to original as best as I can. But will be adding a few accessories. The front drive kit and steering brakes and hand lever fwd rev kit. I'll keep all the original parts. I've got the head at the machine shop now. If it cannot be fixed I'll get a new head. Looking for a pair of original style turf chief tires 23-10.50x 12
