So cute, it thinks its a little Kabota! Good part of the deal was the hubcaps and the mint mower deck!

Thats funny, I have a 12 painted like a deere also? I didnt paint it, I bought it this way:thSick:.


Anyway the 14 is alive and running! Just needed the carb cleaned and new fuel lines. Not bad for haveing sat in a barn for 2 or 3 years. Only problem is it revs up and down like it has a air vane govenor thats not working properly. When I started it up it blew out a ton of dirt dobber nest under the motor tin on top of the motor that were around the fan. I'm wondering if one made a nest on the govenor vane. I can sit and watch the govenor linkage go up and down on the carb. Guess I'll be taking the fan shroud off for a look tomorrow. But, I only paid $125 for it and it runs, so I'm happy.

Yeah I thought the 14 was a tecumseh till I did some reading tonight. Dad gum cleatus, steroids is an understatement.

Ok that whole sentence sounds ******* as he!!

So do these briggs have the air vane gov. that is giving me grief?

I'm going to make this one my dedicated mowing tractor so my SS/18 can have a break. I'll retire it to plowing and blading duty.

4+ 1 parts tractor. I now have a 12,14,16, and 18 hp. I didnt even find this one, it found me. A guy that works with one of my coworkers at his other job called me yesterday out of the blue and asked what I would give, so it followed me home today. Lol and I told my fiance I was buying this one to get running and resale. Who am I kidding!!!!

Is that re-bar I see? I can sorta understand why people paint them different colors. The colors of the sears tractors of the era weren't the most attractive and there were so many different colors. I left mine green also.

Yeah I'm not sure what the rebar lifted, or functioned as. Some kind of lift handle or something.

Good news, got it running great last night. Just had to adjust the carb a little. The guy I bought it from got it from his dad, who had the motor rebuilt by sears 15 or so years ago. I believe it too cause this thing runs strong and doesnt burn any oil. I need to adjust the clutch to disengage a little sooner, but all in all its a good candidate for a restore. By the way, both of these tractors in my thread are for sale.
