Very nice Mike! I like the Kohler opposed twins...and the Magnum with filter is a bonus. Must be the early PS variety, as I dont see the orbital valve holding up the steering wheel.

Is she an early 917? Wonder if it was a KT-I.

Josh it is a 1984 model year, the original engine was a series 2 if I remember correctly. I bought the first time back in 1995 or 6 with a blown engine. Put the M18 in it and then sold it to my Dad. Now it is back.

id="quote">It's just a joke &:) there was a thread about Boomerang tractors some time back and it stuck in my mind.There are guys that have it real bad, and have 'too many tractors', and then there are guys that are certifiable-nuts, and have 'too many tractors' and begin buying back the ones they USED to own. sm03 They should have a funny farm for those guys to all go and receive the proper care they need :Q (My wife would send me there in a heartbeat)
