Thanks for the tips on locating a plow. I checked out the one near me in Pa. and it was sold. The other one in CT is a bit too far. I need to find one in and around Pittsburgh, Pa. or the try state area(Ohio, WV. or Maryland. I picked up the tractor today. As soon as I take some pics I'll:thThumbsU post them. It is in nice shape. The seat could stand to be replaced(has several cracks) and it has two different size rear tires. One is a 23x10.50x12 and the other is 23x8.50x12. The 8.50 is dry rotted and cracked but still holds air ok. I'm going to see if I can pick up a take off 10.50 from the cub dealer near me and replace that 8.50. New battery, new starter cellanoid, two new front tires. Came with a 48" deck that is in nice shape.(no holes and a new idler pulley). One question. How do you get the front part of the mower drive shaft off of the front pto. Is that a spring collar that attaches it to the front pto.
