Nice find i like my cc104.

I found a 104 that was stored after a few years from bad gas. After removing the head to fix a stuck valve the engine inside appeared to be brand new or very little use. After a quick replacement of the gummed up carb and gas tank i found out i have a cloe to brand new running 104. The 38" deack mows the lawn excellent too. Orginally i went looking for a snowplow but i ended up with this non running 104 with a odd ball 54" snowplow and the 38" mower deck from the orginal owners family for $150.

I have noticed a Cub Cadet running with one or two attachments will go between $750 to $1,000 for a gas up, check the oil, turn key running tractor. After all there better than the new stuff there selling today.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

Hello Berlin,

That's a great looking 104. I've had one for 20 years and I still use it to cut the lawn. When I got the tractor it had a bit of piston slap and it's still going strong. I probably paid too much for it but considering the new junk that was available even then I'm way further ahead. I've had to fix up the mower deck a couple times through the years and considering the service it's given me that's not a big deal. It's been a great tractor! Enjoy yours, it looks virtually new.

The squeaky wheel may get the grease but it's usually the first to be replaced!
