In a moment of boredom, found a CC on auction, showed 40 miles away, so I was hooked. Turned out to be 90 miles away in reality, found this out after the auction ended. Anyway here is number 5 CC.

Front tires look to be pretty new, but have been let sit flat long enough, I have little doubt of being able to salvage them.

The rectangular headlights are a unique feature. Missing one, not a very good quality one. About 3x 5 inches,

Try saying stuff like "its incurable darling" or "Love, You too could go the same way and also be number 5" and see if that gets you a bed in the shed/ garage

Everything looks to be in good shape, not all beat up. A little TLC would get that thing in working order in no time.
What are your plans for it? Since you have a few now, it would be a good tractor to do a refurb on. If that seat pan is not rusted out, you could take it to a local auto upholstery shop and get it recovered. A decent OEM headlight assembly shouldn't be too hard to find, just be patient in looking. :bluethumbsup:
Still curious about that engine!

Jon - "in a moment of boredom"!!!!!! Sure sounds more like THE Yeller 'n White FEVER to me.

And as has already been hinted, that engine sure looks like a replacement especially since it's black, and could very well be a 16hp K341 since we can see the larger air filter cover that was used with the 16hp engines. Simpliest, easiest way to tell is count all the head bolts/studs. If it has 10 then it's 16hp. If it has 9 then it's 14hp or less.

The decal on the shroud says K301, but I suppose that could be false advertising ??????

Will have to do that.

The front tires are up now, some cracking from sitting flat, but should be serviceable for some time.............shame, they don't look to be very old. The deck doesn't have any holes as I can see, just some bad welding on the runners on the front edge.
The clutch looks to be coming apart.


I'd like to have a sickle bar mower for banks and such, this might be the candidate?

Not sure about your area, but a sickle mower in these parts comes along about every 5 years. The price is normally crazy high also.
There is a hydrostatic 1x9 for sale on cl that has been painted with a paint brush. It has orange foot plates, and the sickle bar end is broken off. It is priced at $3,000.00. :yikes:
