WTB: Walkbehind w/ blown motor or frame in good condtion

I am looking for preferably a 36 inch walkbehind, Hydrostatic trans, with either a blown engine or no motor, electric pto or not, in good-very good condition. I have a FH430V that I will be rebuilding this fall/winter due to a upper bearing failure on the crank, causing the flywheel and stator to explode.
Not real picky on a brand, motor came off a 05 Gravely PRO1536H with only 500 hours on it. It was just one of those fluky things. I replaced the motor on it with a brand new FH430v Kai. Looking to add another mower to the crew or might sell the rebuild to a friend of mine.

Let me know what you got!

Thanks

I have a 48" Ferris walkbehind for sale, mechanically solid and the engine runs fine, but a pin sheared in the left drive. However, the hydro unit is good. It would be a great winter project that'll run strong in the spring.

So just the Left wheel motor is gone? How much you looking to get out of it? Anything else wrong with it?

I don't think it would be too big, I'm going to punch out the motor. Where are you located and how much you want for it?

The carb needs cleaned, that's it. I've recently changed all the tune-up parts. I'd take $1000 for it.
