I just came across this machine and now that I have it home I'm wondering if it is worth messing with. It's been sitting for a long time and at some time in the past the owner at the time must have had some major engine trouble and removed it from the machine. I looked long and hard through the underbrush and rubble but could not find the remains of the engine. I think I can come up with a used engine but have no idea of what else is missing. I know there is some sort of pulley system and probably a bunch of other parts that attach to engine drive. The pulleys that attach to the cutter are there along with the drive belt but none of the engine end parts are there. I've gone over the rest of the machine and have freed up all the movable parts that were frozen and also got all the grease fittings to where they will take grease. It needs a good cleaning and some paint of-course which is normal for a old machine that has been sitting a long time but I'm wondering if it's worth the effort. I saw a replacement engine advertised on the net that had a little over a $3500 price tag on it and that didn't have the connecting parts that will also need to be found. A new engine is out of the question for a machine that old, not knowing what else may be wrong. As I said before I think I can come up with a good used engine and was wondering if any one out there might know what the engine drive pulley setup would cost.
