The tractor I bought last year had a fire and took out most everything under the hood and all the belts, lift mechanism, gas tank and a front and rear tire when the gas tank went up. Right now it is a basket case because the further I got the more I found damaged by the fire and my wife said one tractor is enough. I know it can not be restored in a 24 hour period and knew that going in but due to things out of my control at this point in my life I don't have the time or money to do the project. You are right it is a poor excuse I will post it as a hole in the classifieds with the couple of parts I purchased last fall. Thank you for the help guys.
