Got this YTV/16 a few months ago. Found it on the side of the road by the HS with a FREE sign on it. Had to call a buddy to come help so I didn't have to two trip it. I also broke one of my wood ramps, so it was a good thing he helped out. Lol. Have a mower deck and snowblower for it. Almost every pulley with a bearing was toast.

Snowblower^
Already have a few of the late 80's early 90's craftsman as well as a plow and blower, so no need for this. Probably sell it in the spring/summer of 2021.

Got a couple of GT5000s and a '84 Bombardier MPV20 twin PTO. Old machine , hard on parts sourcing, but only thing I can legally drive on the street and it'll do 28mph. 3spd, 2 Range, 4x4 with front locker. Never seen a more lelibale workhorse. My Case 480C seems to be in parts more than it is working, and this lil champ only needs a clutch about every 1700hrs (114k miles) or so because of a wonderful missalignment that can't be fixed. Other than its turn key, wait for plugs, and off ahe goes.

my john deere is loving this warm weather and my craftsman starts as usual but i put a battery on it and it doesnt charge whats up with that? its an older 10hp flathead tecumseh not super old has electric start and pull so its not the biggest deal ever. also i bought 3 snappers one is donating a motor to my mtd and another is donating parts to that motor if it will start that is.

finnaly got something that isnt junk i paid 120 bucks for a nice troy built it was abused but save able has normal mtd problems but runs and drives good needs an alighnment, pully swap and exhaust stack or side pipe, the mufflers rotten. it pops nice wheelies, has good tires and 5/8 from spindles so i put go kart wheels on the front. took the deck off.

Im at school cant post pictures at the moment but i will as soon as i can. they sold it so cheap because they thought the starter went out because there was no click. bad solenoid ground, compression release was stuck wouldnt turn over. it works enough to start because i adjusted the valves a little too tight on purpose it runs good didnt even have to rebuild the carb they store it right by draining the gas. but the shrouding was full of oil grease grass rodent poop dirt dobber nests. it was bad i couldnt get the rest out, im going to go through the motor a bit and take the sump off and clean the entire motor get any nasties out, possibly replace the cam if its missing anything to the compression release.

im gonna make a pully start for rope start if it decides to not start by key while parked. and i carry starting fluid with me at all times it needs a bunch of small things and matence to the motor before i trust it enough to take it to a proper testing grounds
