Is this possible...

I bought my 1971 154 off of a guy in the neighborhood back in 2015. Needed the rear engine seal replaced. Other than that and a few other typical things, carb rebuild, complete tune-up, replace some wiring, etc, it has been a good tractor. I had to rebuild the PTO assembly last fall and that is a pain in the tail and wallet. At a recent neighborhood picnic, I asked the previous owner ( he was the 2nd owner and had it for almost 30 years ) when the tractor was overhauled. As far as he knows, it has never been overhauled or had any other repairs. When I had the engine out of the frame to do the rear seal, it looked like it still had original paint on some major engine parts. I use it to mow about 4 acres each week so it gets about 50 - 60 hours of use each mowing season and it may use a quart of oil in that time frame. No smoke or engine noises. Amazing for a 48 year old tractor.

Glad you are giving it the care it needs. Possible? Absolutely! Not sure owners of newly purchased equipment will be saying the same 48 years from now.

That’s what low hp/cubic inch and low rpm’s will do for you!
