Re: New to me Gravely 816
I had a little time to tinker with the tractor today. The tires held air, the rear are showing rot and the front look like there were new. I winched it away from the weeds and got the trans to shift by rocking it back and forth a bit, thanks for that tip. So at least it is a roller now and will be easier to load on the trailer. This also unstuck the PTO and I was able to turn the engine over several full revolutions by hand.
I took the mower deck off. The leading edge of the housing looks like it was used as a plow a few times. The main issue with the deck is that one of the three spindles for the blades was sheared off and only about 1/4" of threads are still there.
I did get one more part for the snow thrower, a mount that looks like it attaches to the lift bar and then forward to the bottom of the blower. I got the long part initially and just got the smaller triangle shaped part that goes with it today. Sadly I think the long PTO shaft for the blower is gone.
