Saturday was good to me

Recommended Posts

I went to an auction Saturday 4/20, about 55 miles nw of me. there was a 725 on the auction, looked good in the pictures so I thought it was worth the ride to check it out.

I did have a couple of guys bid against me but I was pretty surprised when I bought it for only $65. I brought it home put a battery in it replaced the brittle broken fuel line and it stared right up. Another pleasant surprise. It doesn't have the mid pto and I can't decide if it every did, it does have a rear lift. Seems to burn a little oil. It has had some repainting, the ID tag is missing, the engine tag says it is from 66 so that is a replcement, but still a nice little unit. I'm very happy to have it. Should look good with my belly grader.

Thanks Osenga. I just got on a Briggs site and discovered that the serial number (662334) does not mean that it was made in 66 as I had thought, but in July of 1962 so it is an original engine after all. Bonus.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
