Being new to the lawn tractors of this spectrum, since I have experience in the 200 and 300 series...
I was looking into purchasing a John Deere 60 Lawn Tractor from a friend,and I was wondering if there is anything I should really watch out for, or worry about? Hopefully will have pics of it later tomorrow night. I have not seen it yet myself. How easy or hard is it to find attachments for these?

I wish I had another engine if that answers your question. Bring a magnet with you as the original engines had cast iron blocks and
many engine were replaced with the cheaper not as good aluminum block engines. Roger

More questions.... What is the proper fuel line routing for the line from the tank to the carb? I don't believe mine is correct being that it interferes with the governor's operation. and is there supposed to be a return spring on the governor also? Mine doesn't seem to return properly. This may be the fuel line issue too... I'm not sure.

Another issue arouses. I've fixed the fuel issues, and spun the tank around, also added a filter to the line. But, today, when I went down to my shop to move it, it wont crank. I've concluded for now that whoever wired it previously used 3 pieces of wire for every foot of wiring, and crimped it all together. I'm going to attempt to wire if correctly if anyone has a wiring diagram.
Help would be appreciated
