Well guys, its safe to say I have a problem with craigslist. Came across a 1999 Cushman Turf-Truckster (model:898652) and brought it home... The seller claims he was selling it for his brother who moved out of state before replacing the starter - starter is currently missing. I did manage to move it while in gear so the engine seems to turn which is a good sign. This weekend I'm debating having my wife drag me down the driveway with the 1025R to see if I can turn it over before investing more money in a starter. Not to say I'd part it out if it turns out to be more than just a starter. If anyone knows anything about the trucksters or knows of a starter for <$175 let me know.
It also needs new tires all the way around - fronts are 20x10-10 and rears are 24x13-12. It seems like I could probably add at least an inch of ground clearance before the tires would come close to being problematic. Anyone have any thoughts?
And yes, I'll be taking pictures soon.
