This was a month long project that was a lot of fun. Tractor has been in our family since 2009, and was grand dad's last rider. It took a backseat in recent years because of a shot mowing deck, but Joe in Michigan cut me a great deal on one that was in great shape.
Did a full tune up, new tires, paint/body, new seat, rebuilt carb, new switches (sat outside), a few new idlers, new belts, added LED's to the front and rear, polished headlight bezle and installed LED headlights. This tractor has a bagger that's in good shape, so it'll get a lot of use this summer.
We're a proud Marine family, so of course I added a new set of decals. Really enjoyed this one!

I've got a GT5000 that looks same as your orignal.. I just use it as a tractor pulling a trailer around the plantation. It did not have a deck when I acquired it for parts, like buying a pig in a poke for $50, did not know it had a good Kohler 25 Hp engine. Just needed little TLC. ALL tires are good
The plastic steering bushing were worn out on the sector gear, installed starter brush kit.
