83 8199KT and 60 inch deck

So this tale all started out ran outa welding wire in my welder. And came in the house and set down at the puter and started reading FB messages. My buddy Mark had said he was gonna post it for sale. For $250 needing work. I did not even hesitate told him don't care what it needed its sold and be there in 45 minutes. I hooked Big red up to the 18ft and headed out. 60 won't fit on my small trailer

So heres what I got

ID:	2378021So tractor runs and drives. 2 main complaints from 2 po's ago was motor was rebuilt and leaked oil since. Ok not a huge issue I didn't think at the time and cheap enough to not care

ID:	2378023Last was it doesn't charge. Also not scary for me. And new drive clutches installed but rivits loose on both. Assuming they didn't use gravely ones or done incorrectly. Reguardless easy fixes so I would think.

ID:	2378027Surprise one was the nest in the shroud. Pulled tins and blew all the stuff out and slapped on a good used voltage regulater to make it charge. Rerivited clutch lineings. At this point no sign of oil leak.

ID:	2378037So realize its time to shoe horn it threw my shop door which is literally the same size as the deck. And get ready for an open heart operation. Searched ebay and found another bearing enclosure for a kt and a gasket for about $27. And parts will be here next weds day or thursday. So I'll take the motor off then and see what happens.

You guys are now up to speed on where im at have some vids i'll throw on here another day

Also - looks like you've got L's stacked like cord wood like so many of us. Sure wish I could find a use for them. If only they could be easily geared down for motor conversions.

Re: 83 8199KT and 60 inch deck

Glad it turned out to be a great buy for you, Steve. Nice, and smooth cut too. Having the 60" deck will give you more time to bring more tractors home too.
