New acquisition, 1965 10M60

Just picked it up this evening! The machine is in very good shape, but the engine has seized. The seller recalls his father purchasing it from a widowed neighbor around 1970. Price was right, as he 'just wanted it out of the garage'. Pics to follow soon.

The engine may just be "stuck." The rings fuse to the cylinder walls when sitting for a long time. A few ounces of mystery oil, or other penetrant, down the plug hole, a breaker bar and socket on the flywheel nut after a few days waiting. You could be back in business. MH

Ken, your killing me here. I can't find a old one like yours within 2 hour ride and your picking up one a week! Nice find, can't wait to see pix.

Good suggestion on freeing the piston. I will pick up some Mystery Oil tomorrow. I have sprayed WD-40 in there since that's all I have on hand currently. The seller said it sat for 4 years. He actually got it started and was using it. When he started it up the second time, heard some 'knocking' so he turned it off. When I initially pulled on the recoil, it was moving, but not too smoothly, and I could hear some knocking sound. I pulled it slowly a few more times and that's when it seized up.

Ray, thanks for the compliments! I am pretty pleased with the acquisition. My plan is to open up the crankcase and explore a bit since I have never done it before. If all fails, I would mount the 212 Predator I purchased a few weeks ago.But not until I've explored my options on bringing this one back to life.

When I was rolling it around today, I've noticed it has a differential. However, it does not have the differential lock on the wheel. Does that imply that the slip differential is standard on the 10M6, and the 10M6D adds the option of locking the differential?

I thought it was the other way around.... 10M6 is locked always just like my 10ML55's, and 10M6D has the slip differential.

Look behind the wheels, you may have the ratchet wheel hubs on there and not a differential. They were an option you could add on that allowed the wheels to be unlocked as if there was a differential on there. They made it possible to use the tractor with the other trac team attachments. (Mower, chipper, lawn vac)

Nice clean machine, Ken. If you were able to pull her over, the rings are not fused to the cylinder. The knocking could be the connecting rod...either loose rod cap, cracked or broken rod, or simply a lack of lubrication down there. Also, a valve guide may have some rust buildup that is causing a valve to stick and you may be hearing the lifter. A broken rod will often allow you to pull it only so far, and then it will jam up. If you pull your plug, and shine a penlight in the plug hole, you can watch to see if your valves and piston are all operational, and go from there. MH

Congrats, I have a mid to late 60s vintage 10M6D as well and it doesn't have the locking diff either(but it does have a diff).

With the way the chute crank is configured on the mid 60s 10M6D, you should be able to slap the Predator onto it w/out having the chute crank interfering.
