I just picked up what I believe is a complete 1967 model 60 lawn tractor and mower deck in Niles OH. I will be restoring this tractor as I have time and will post progress pictures - probably pretty slowly. The seller said 12 people responded to the CL add within the first hour of it's posting. I don't know how I managed it, but I was the first (luck I guess). For the curious, did any WFM members try for this tractor (CL Youngstown, OH on 04/08/2010)?
Also, I saw a post in these forums from someone in the Pittsburgh area who just acquired within the last week a model 60 with the same story of history that the seller gave me. The seller took this one on trade in the last day or two. I was wondering if it may be the same tractor and whether that previous owner may have any useful information about it.
The VH60 engine does not run but turns over when I pull the rope gently. It has electric start but I have not tried it. The seller said there is no spark. I don't even have it unloaded from the truck yet.
Pictures coming soon!
