History
Just got the fender/body pan back from bead blast!

I went to get parts for the Murray and came home with a John Deere! The tractor fired right up but smoked heavily as the previous owner reported. I pulled the head and found a blown head gasket into the pushrods gallery. The previous owner had purchased the tractor from a John Deere Dealership new, and had the tractor serviced by them twice a year since new. The machine shows little wear, but the factory green paint is bubbled. I have currently pulled the body for walnut blast, and a fresh coat of automotive grade of JD green (new). The deck will also get redone. If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right.
