I thought I would show my latest tractor purchase. It is a 1985 224 with 720 hours. Came with a mower deck that is supper quiet. The motor won't turn over. I found out the starter solenoid was frozen and when you turned the motor it saw turning the starter. The solenoid was also shot. I freed up the starter and jumped the solenoid and with a carb adjustment it runs like a top. I am happy as can be.

I found it on Craig's list in Willow Springs a week ago. I was the first person to respond, he said he got a ton of responses. I am in South Barrington, where are you in IL.

ihvvet2 - Very nice indeed. What a great deal. Looks as though the deck could use a little attention but outside of that that machine is in fantastic condition!!! Congratulations.

I saw that as well but was way too late. I'm in Sleepy Hollow, not far from you.

How`s it feel to keep looking over your shoulder every time you hear a siren. Man you stole that tractor, that was great timing, yeah, I hate you too. Fine looking tractor, go buy a lottery ticket while your luck holds out.

Speaking of Robbery the tractor needs a muffler- I see on the old Case parts internet site- a new muffler is $225 plus shipping! I hope I can weld up the end where it is leaking or find a good used one.
