Hello, new to the group, but not garden tractors. This is my first case however. Found it buried way back in an old machinery shed. This unit was sold brand new at a local case dealer in our town. Last nite I cleaned the
Points, replaced the coil and threw on a used carb and splashed a little gas in it and we detonation ! I was informed by the PO wife that the tractor was parked around 80-81. Very excited to see where this project leads!

My lady is very handy with a sewing machine for this sort of project so my thought after Bob's response of lack of used ones is to make one. As long as you have the original pieces as models and if there are any mounting pieces that need to be reused, the shapes look pretty simple. You can get foam and vinyl easily. Even if you can't get it done "in-house" you could probably find a canvas place or automotive upholstery place that could do it, although pricier.

Nice job bringing that one back to life!
Thank you for that! I’m currently trying to track down the vinyl. The main reason I wanna stay with the original seat pan is due to the original dealer sticker on it. He was a friend of my grandfathers and was our local case dealer as well as supplier of all other “shop and farm” supplies
