Tried to swap the transaxles but the distance between the mounting holes is different. The correct transaxle has bad tires.
The input pulley is rotted away and will have to be exchanged, The better one could stand a bit of electrolysis.
It is amazing how much simpler this tractor is compared to the Gilson Super 8.
The carb is off but it is junk. Notice the rust on the end of the large welch plug in the center of this image.
The larger air cleaner bolt twisted off. The bowl nut will not turn. Same story as on the carb from the snapper riding mower I junked out a year ago.
A member of myTractorForum said Ford Toreador Red is a close match for the original color.
I am slipping. The first thing I have always done is to get the number off the engine. I don't see where I did that for this tractor.
