    I like it, good score. Watch Elfman doesn’t sneak over and steel the hubcaps.
    Is she running? Can you use parts for one of the others? Only going up in value.

    Yeah she runs pretty good. Front caps I think will shine up nice but rears are not good one has a rust hole in it. Yeah I plan to use the pto parts for the 77 but other then that i'm not sure what I will do with it.

    77 or 78 Pop found another 208 in Fall also. He’s also thinking about selling that one and it has an updated newer deck.
    Find it up there near you?

    York county. Elfman has already checked out the hub caps. Don't know if i want to fix it up a bit or part it. But you know how hard it is for me to part out old tractors.

    By the way 78

    Elf Junior did pretty well too yesterday, Thanks for taking him along Don. Went to purchase the snowblower for his '71 70 lawn tractor, only to find out that the idler bracket assembly wasn't included with the blower. Snowblower isn't much good without it. Anyway, after Caleb explained this to the seller, the seller not only gave the snowblower to Caleb for free, but threw in a complete mower deck for a 60 lawn tractor too!

    I have determined that Caleb will be doing all of my wheeling and dealing from now on! :D Free works, not just for Caleb and I, but it seems to keep the wife content also whenever we bring more things home!

    Wow that deck looks nice. Shame for the snowblower though but the price was definitely right. My snowblower is also missing the idler bracket.
