    hey guys im looking at buying a jd 667a stander and after talking to the guy he is telling me that he believes that he threw a rod and the motor is running on one cylinder. rebuild kit or new motor would be needed? if a rebuild kit how much do they run about i am trying to find them on line but kinda spotty...hes selling for $1000.00 just trying to figure out my cost and if it is worth it. thanks

    What's the condition of the mower year and all you ain't gonna buy much of a mower for $2500 even if you have to put a new engine. if the mower is in good shape it's still a good deal :waving:

    Mower looks clean in pics got a 60" and doing some searching looks like the oldest the model can be is a 2007
