PostSubject: newbe with a newly aquired 6008 motomower   Mon 09 Apr 2012, 7:21 pm

hello everyone iv been a member for about a week now and lurking this site . I had come across a motomower on craigslist for $100 in lynnfield ma . description did not state what model or year only said it had an earth plow a harrow and an extra set of wheels . after several discussions with the owner over the phone he said the add was incorrect and would not sell for the advertised price . persistance and alot more $ its now in my truck. it is a 6008 type 101 sn k10003 motomower . the tractor has been garaged its whole life and had not seen light for about 25 years . this tractor is unmolested complete including a brinly hitch . i was even able to salvage the mower deck although the deck is not as nice as the machine . the mowerdeck fell over and scratched his wifes mercedes and out to the yard it went sometime in the 90's i will post some pictures tomorrow before and after its washed . the owner claims he drove it into the garage and just stopped using it . i can see the rearend will need some seals and the tank and carb need to be cleaned . does it sound like this machine is a 1964? it has a black steering wheel and a seat with a backrest . there is a mount for a plow and the extra wheels and snow tread type tires are wrapped with chains . just no snowplow .

here is the front mount for what i think to be a snowblower . confusing because seller stated he had a plow on it but the tractor came with some paperwork for setting up a snowblower .

heres a pic of the motor. the rod thats connected to the foot pedal with the turnbuckle is broken . ive put some marvel mystery oil in the cylinder to try to minimize any damage this has not ran in 20+ years . i will be removing the carb to boil it and the tank needs to be cleaned out . the gas smells more like varnish . with any luck she will be up and running ia a few weeks . so this is how i found it .
