    Default Junkyard Dog

    I found a 1996 John deere 325 17hp Kawa&hydro-- (no deck) in the shed of a hardware store that was going out of business. I bought it for $150.00 I put in new kingpin bushings,4 tires,a seat,muffler,battery,fuel pump,head gasket and some smaller stuff.It has 1300hrs on the "clock".The hood was trashed so instead of shelling out over $400.00 for a new hood I sheetmetaled the top&sides to what was left. It still tilts. I got the original headlights working etc. I built a homemade 48in snowplow for it. It's perfect for sidewalks. It now pulls wheelstands at will. Starts right up on the first crank.Idles low&smooth& No Smoke from anywhere. I hope you enjoy my project,saving it from the boneyard---hence came the name "Junkyard Dog". I enjoy your site. Thanks.

    Welcome, and that's quite a ride you have there. When I was a kid, STP stickers were all the rage; maybe you could add a couple.

    Looks cool, doing a lot more good now than sitting in a storage building going to waste
