Thanks for the input - the 2 Deere, 2 Craftsman, and Deere Sabre are in the best condition of the ones you mentioned. Any feeling about the engines in those (Kohler Command, Kawasaki, B&S twin, B&S I/C OHV)?
Again, thanks for the input.

Wayne195 - Austen mentioned some of the B&S twins had issues with the plastic flywheels keys breaking. How could I determine if the Craftsman GT has that problem?
plastic flywheel key

Thanks Wayne195
