184 did not have creeper gear and steering wheel is junk
184 engine came from tractor serial# 51940 which I believe is a 1980,
Tractor was used by a private park and was used only in summer to mow
ballfields and was operated by a semi-retired groundskeeper since
early 90's, I was told that this tractor was overhauled by a local
dealer (now out of business)around 1995 but I have no receipts (or
dealer) to verify this. Tractor was Pristine prior to fuel accident
(ironically fueled by assistant local fire dept chief while running).
Engine is equipped with Zenith Carb , but intake hose was burned
off..not sure of carb condition
Engine is less flywheel and starter (already sold)
for complete engine Head to pan ,including distributor,manifolds with
muffler,carb,Hydraulic pump with piping,fan assembly, complete
govenor , lower coolant pipe and front pulley
boxed and ready to ship -$1000
For engine Head to pan (with all internals) minus the items listed
boxed and ready to ship -$650
give me a call if you wish at 517-431-2655 after 5pm EST
