I snagged some Sears Plus Start batteries on sale for $59. I have also bought used from an auto salvage yard for $25. I think the size is group 24F. Take your measurements and note the orientation for + and - posts based on the cables. I keep unused batteries indoors over the winter and rotate a HF battery float charger between them with 1 month on each battery since I have 6 batteries to maintain.
I get mine at fleet farm for 21..99 and on sale for 16.00... the usually last me 6 years

I've found an add for an old Studebaker/Gravely Westchester that has sparked my interest. The only things it seems to be missing are the exhaust, air filter and I'm guessing a front cap for the PTO. The body overall seems to be in pretty good shape (pictures are posted below). I just want to...
Okay I'm going to keep the 1964 puppy, so far the forum has been super helpful.
What steps should I take before trying to starting?
Gas tank looks pretty clean, the oil has be mud /filter.
New spark plug?
Thanks and wish me luck.
A local craigslist ad shows a 60” mower deck from a 20G that supposedly can be run via quick hitch on a walk-behind. What do you all know about this set up? Is it worth considering? I have a Commercial 12. Seems like it would counter balance the Kohler no problem. I don’t have steering...
