Good luck then as these old baby Fords were nice (and expensive!!). I looked at their comparable baby diesel - used - before I bought mine and it was much more costly then what I ended up with and mine included a Wood's 59" 3 blade mower deck and a 48" snow blower and zero hours. If you are lucky, it will have a Kohler or B&S engine that's reasonably priced to rebuild rather then try to retrofit
