Buyer beware !!

"...tractor has been restored to like new condition..."

If this is what a new tractor is like, don't know if I would want one.
How many incorrect parts can you spot ?
Don't let the pristine paint job distract you.

I'll bite, Dave! Keep in mind that I'm still pretty new with these things. I have a square nose LoBoy and have never been around the taller brother.. What I've seen is wrong gas cap, rubber fuel line, possibly a mag, (can't see it very well) and something seems squirrely with the blade mount brackets. I see a voltage regulator and maybe should have had an alternator.
Go easy on me and point out what I should have found...
Regards, Stan

Stan, just curious as to why you say the gas cap is wrong.

I know there is a recall, but don't know when it was implemented in production. I have the taller one for my '64. Maybe it was an after production recall...

Seat is wrong. Unless they changed it, but the yellow Cub I've driven had a black cushion seat with a little back/lumbar support. The shift for the one I drove was curved downward. It almost looks like a combination of a red cub and the yellow.

I'm used to seeing this, I don't know what the other years may have looked, if they did look any different.

Maybe it doesn't have a mag...awfully dark. Oh well, I played the game..

What are they trying to get for this tractor? It might be OK, if you don't expect authenticity to any particular degree.

I don't think it looks like a magneto. If course, it isn't going very far with battery ignition and no battery.

It has the wrong seat, wrong decals, wrong color on the fenders, rear rims and some other small pieces. There are a few pieces of a mower attached. It has a rear light bracket but no lights. Trailer tires?

I'd say price is at least 2X higher than a realistic selling price. Especially, going into the winter season.

I seen that on CL and thought maybe he got the 2 and 5 switched around. And for that price it still needs a battery?

The choke control is wrong, and I do not see a key ignition. Just my 2 cents! :D

And, what year did they go with the zenith carb. My two cents, Papa.
