    Yep, the straight cut gears are noisy as hell, but strong as hell. If you ever want to find one of those, check motorhomes and old ass school buses that used the 400 before they got smart and used Allisons. Allisons are actually very similar to the 475.

    Cool, that's a fancy one too. Even has lights. Is it hydrostatic drive too, or a standard gearbox?

    Standard gearbox. Those arent the right lights. Supposed to be round headlights not square.

    Great, another thread from the past that reminds me I haven't got the things done that I want to, lol.

    Besides the Bolens in the original post, I've also got a Cub Cadet 127 and a Cub Cadet 147... that all need work done so I can enjoy them again.

    If I’ve learned anything from recent projects, it’s to only break small pieces off I can tackle in a week or so at one time. Especially now with a job on top of my company...

    Selling my company this month if the deal goes through. Then I’ll be a working stiff for a while...or I’ll be doing both...

    Sorry it’s a keeper. For now, many of the parts are still available for this mower despite being 30 years old.

    Bring your mower by anytime you’re in the area and I’ll clean it up for you.

    I don't have it anymore, we got rid of it when we moved. Much smaller yard here and just a front drive 21 incher to keep things trimmed. Kooper, my Grandson, does our lawn for us. He made a deal with my Bride to mow for 2 years to pay back the Cowl Hood she bought him for his S10. Works out well for all of us 100_0006 (1).JPG

    This one started out as a $300 junker that I got from a friend. Looks pretty good now, but that's Kooper's Uncle Tony's work with the paint and the body labor.

    I have an 88 white that’s in nice shape(mint) I can post for your pleasure, whoever Dave is. I also have a couple modern John Deere’s and a 63 white but that’s ugly and not running.
    Closest thing to that is a restored model H John Deere
