Scored RBTs

Recommended Posts

Well my Buddy's dad had this stuff. So I picked it up from him. I got a 916 with a Hydraulic lift. Got a Sleeve hitch for it too. He told me it ran 6 months ago and just havent used it since it wasnt charging. Will I found out the battery was just junk. Put the battery on and turns over. I figured it wouldnt be the only problem. I tried starting it and it was back firing like crazy outta the carb and muffler. I never heard anything back fire this loud lol. So I took the plug out. Noticed it was Carboned up. Put another one in and it hit right off. I also Got a parts 917. It seems to be missing the dash and steering wheel. I have other steering parts but idk if its all there. Also Got the lawn Vac. Only thing I dont have is the trailer. Snow Blower, and a B series plow that had the hitch stuff i need for my 3012 :). I havent decided what Ill do with em yet. I think I got the blower gone. Thought about various ways to sell the 2. I might part out the 917 but I havent decided yet. i always went by looks on why I liked the FDTs more, but now I ran both I know the FDTs operate a little better IMO. Steering Radius isnt as tight, Dont seem to be a good hill side mower lol, and Ive never been a Kohler

Not a bad grab at all! I've become a big fan of the 7100's as of late. I like the long hood and comfy ride. The 916 looks like a keeper, to me. Just needs a bath! ;)

      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!😁
