This is my 1254 tractor that had a failed TRA-12D motor when I brought it home. I haven't done much with it in the past 3 years except bolt a 5 hp. B&S motor on it to verify that the transmission was good and then this TRA-10D motor I got last summer. About a week ago I did this realy quick throw together arrangement just to get it running and moveable. Used the dash assembly from a 1000 tractor just because it had a voltage regulator, wiring, and a starting switch already in place. I used a jumper wire from the coil to the battery positive terminal as I didn't have an ignition switch close at hand. Used a piece of string for a throttle control and we were mobile. I have cruised it around the driveway and yard a bit but now it's time for something a bit better. I will find a shorter piece of pipe for the exhaust too. Going to put the original dash support and dash back on and have choke, throttle controls and a key switch. I have the remains of two wiring harnesses, one from this tractor and one from a 1256 so between the two I will be able to wire it. Supposed to rain tomorrow so I probably can make some improvements. I was planning on removing the fender pan for a better look under it, so I already removed the seat.
