Picked up my 770 from Fastenal today as I purchased it from a fellow member and shipping was cheaper than driving. Was happy to get it home but I have a few questions I can't seem to find answers for.
It has the old style seat pan on it and looks like it could have been original but I didn't think they used that style in 1968. Thinking it should have one of the low back seats on it. The model on the tag is 161-01 which I'm assuming is a 1968. I don't have a parts manual for a 161-01 only the 164-01 and 165-01 models. If some one would have a copy of the manual for the 161-01 I would be greatful if you could upload one or send me a copy. I'll try and get the manual uploaded for the 164-01 and 165-01 this weekend.
Then the reason I decided to get it is because it has a belly blade on it. From the way I understand it the belly blade is somewhat of a hard to find attachment ( I'm going to refrain for using the "r" word). It needs to have a pin made to hold the blade from swiveling other than that it looks to be all original.
I'll get some better pics of it. It once the shop is a little emptier next week. Shops full of trucks so we didn't have to plow snow around them because of the blizzard.

I'll look and see if I got a book on the 161-01 in my small frame stuff.

I have the illustrated parts catalog for the 160-01 & 161-01 do you need a owners operation and maintenance manual?

Hey Jerome

You need to get one of those scanners that they advertise on TV for copying paperwork onto your computer files.

Just the illustrated parts manual will be fine.

Thanks Jerome
