    Wasn't even looking for more machines and I ended up with these gems:

    The diamond in the rough: David Bradley 2 Wheel Walk Behind Tractor, circa 1952/53. Got the cultivators and snowplow with it too.

    MTD 14.5/42 lawn tractor, I'm gonna drop its engine in a JD 111 or 116.

    Honda HT-3813 Liquid Cooled 2 cylinder inline 13hp/38"cut.

    Looks like some pretty good free stuff you got there. Good luck getting that David Bradley running.

    Actually everytime I bring a new one in, they come over asking if I have such and such parts on hand. I was asked about a starter last week for a Briggs, which I have plenty of.

    My other neighbor bought my old Honda HT-3810, 5 years ago, and when he found out I had got a 3813, he offered to buy it off of me when I'm done with it, but I think I'm gonna keep it and use it to mow this summer, to reduce wear and tear on the GT-235 since that is my personal mower.

    I moved all the junk pushmowers from my backyard into the woods yesterday afternoon, so they're outta sight and outta mind. Got to get my old work tractor (White LT-12) going so I can drag the junk riders down in the woods too.

    There's actually a lot of payup to be found in parts and used machines.

    I sold my Murray 11/36 last week for $250, only had $45 in parts in it (carb kit and battery, already had spark plug and fuel filter on hand) and 2 hours of my time.
