Well i got the 15!! James was able to talk the guy down to $140. It starts and runs and drives really well. lots of torque too, even though the idle nees some work. Came with a 42" dozer and some tire chains. The ignition switch blew out and the guy put a push button start in it, so to turn it off i need to pull the plug wire on it. but overall, it runs well, the paints really not that bad, and it drives smooth. all i really need to do is put a key in, wire up the lights, and clean the carb (maybe) but other than that its good to go.

when i sold the 8XL, the guy was talking to me about my SS16. he had two, but sold them because he liked the customs and older suburbans better. he has a new nose cone, an 18hp onan, cast iron wheel weights, and some engine parts that he is bringing me next weekend, just because he didnt need them, and cause i asked for wheel weights :)

i stupidly forgot to take any pictures of it, but i took a video of it and it is uploading now.

ill take a picture in a few minutes once the video is done

ps, thanks again to james for moving the 15 and cleaning/rebuilding the pump on the 16 :thanku:

Not bad for the price you paid.
i think i really did well, it starts everytime, and runs pretty good. compared to the ss16 which ran, then didnt, then ran, then didnt

So two things. One does anyone mow with their 14 or 15? And two, what would work well as floorbord material?

Used a can of that Hard set Rhino Truck bed Liner on my Gilson works good.
Yeah that stuff is good too!! I am planning on my next restore to paint the underside of the frame, fenders, and running boards in that stuff too.
