    Is that one of the old Acme engines? Are they supported well enough?

    I'd say it's a good deal for a 735. The Acme has no support that I know of beyond Earth Tools. Kohler bought them for the Lombardini diesels and knocked the gas engines in the head. Too bad, really. They were built to last as long as the machine they were on. Still, if the engine does fail, for as little as was paid for the tractor, you can afford to pay $950 to put a 13 hp Honda with adapter kit on it. The dozer blade is missing most of its mounting bracket

    Figure when the Acme breaks it will probably have to be replaced. The last time I called even Earth Tools had very little left available for these engines anymore. Fortunately the swap to a modern powerplant is very easy and relatively inexpensive.
