This is my147 I've had for almost a year now. SN 205004iu396046. I got this tractor for nothing,it was in the back of my brother n laws shed. He said if I want it,come get it,and it was in bad shape! 48in mower deck is shot,and the mule gear is all bent up from coming off a trailer...the wrong way! It looked like someone was parting it out. Thanks to this forum I learned how to put it back together,I even rebuilt the a motor for it which I had never done!

ok, got'cha. You did do a terrific job bringing that 147 back to life from what it was. I know you went thru some trial and error, but you sure've come along way in one year. Keep up the good work. What's next?

Very, very nice work on your 147. Always amazes me on how you and others can take an “almost dead” tractor and transform it into a real head turner. A lot of skill and a great piece on machinery to start with. Keep up the great work!

I have to give credit to where the credit is due...and that's to this forum and ALL the guys that helped me. All I did was Google why that thing was a bucking bronco(trunnion spring was gone) and this forum and a FAQs sheet on how to repair it came up. When I realized there was an entire forum filled with VERY skilled people dedicated to these tractors...I was hooked:greenthumb:
