Hi Doug, and welcome to the forum! Glad to see more and more Moto-Mower owners showing up. I just double checked my Moto-Mower parts manual, and it is telling me your tractor was built in 1965. One other way to check would be to get the serial # off of the engine if the tag is still there. On my 8 hp Kohler K-181, the tag is located on top of the engine. The serial # should start with an A, indicating the engine was also built in 1965. The spec # should be 30112A. Do you have any pictures of your tractor? Do you have any attachments for it? Here are my 2 Moto-Mower's, a 1966 6024 (right), and a 1967 6025 (left). Both have 42" mower decks and 42" snow blades. They both were running good, but the one has a bad fuel pump currently, and the other one needs a good tuneup.

Can't wait to see those pics! I'm definitely interested in seeing the hydraulic plow setup. There are several ways for you to post pics here. The easiest way for me is to load them to my photobucket account and then copy the img code over to here. There also is a way to post them directly to the forum, but I'm not sure how to do it and have never learned so I'll leave that up to someone else to explain. Alternatively, if you do not have a photobucket account you could always email them to me and I will post them for you. My email is ejh5006 at gmail.com (of course you will need to replace the word at with the symbol @). Here's a few more pics of mine.



Engine tag on the 8hp Kohler.



Metal Identification tag on the model 6024, the other tractor has a sticker, but it is still in good shape.



The 6025 with one of the mower decks mounted up.



A closeup shot of one of the decks. This one is more complete than the other one and originally came with the 6024. The other one is currently buried in storage. This one is in good shape except that one of the mandrel mounting plates has a crack.

Thanks Doug...got the email. All I can say is nice tractor! cheers

Too bad about the deck though....I started a new thread with all the pics in the general discussion section of the forum.
