dump find MTD

Hey again .....Thursday I went to the local recyling station, and the dump general called me over....he had this 10.5 hp 28 inch Yardman some one dropped off in the iron pile...did I want it...Heck Yeah! On the truck and home. Today I swapped in a manual chute control as the cable ones on the MTD are always problematic ( Thanks again Dauntae!) freed up some frozen linkage, oil change, adjust transmission (no reverse), adjusted skids, and added the missing carb shield...good to go!
