    MF 7 lawn tractor built around 1972. 7 HP tecumseh engine, 3 speed and reverse tranny, 34" cut deck, and I have a 40" dozer blade (OEM) for it. These things are built TOUGH. Its now in restoration. I have another tractor almost exactly like it for parts. http://clubs.yahoo.com/clubs/masseyfergusongardentractors

    Hey, HEY! I think I see our potential "Lawnsite Legend" racer! There might even be enough room for a Bombardier powerplant in that compartment. This would be a classic!

    I'd like to eventually get into pulling, (maybe 3 or 4 years down the road), but racing? I wouldn't like to do that much modification. We have a Sears GT18 (old model) that would be good for pulling if we ever get a motor for it.

    A lot of the pullers in the mid-west have IH Cub Cadet rear ends. "Cause they are built tough ! [even some green guys have them]
