My 1989 Mtd still ran but was getting tired. I decided to put in the Predator 212 when I saw the reviews and the price. Next well it was apart might as well change the belts,bushings and friction disc. Got paint and new Xtrak tires will be in Monday. My question is when does it end? I've already lined up a sweet 8 horse Ariens for $100 from a lady who's husband just passed away and am planning to rebuild this one too. This is turning into a fun hobby.
