Craftsman LT1000 Tractor

My father in law got this Craftsman LT1000 tractor for me from a friend of his who was moving in 2010.  When I got it, it smoked very badly, so I thought that I may have been in store for an engine rebuild or replacement.  Luckily, closer inspection revealed that the engine had just been overfilled with oil, which had made its way into the exhaust system.  After an oil change, a new spark plug, and about an half an hour at full throttle to burn residue off, the smoking problem was resolved and it replaced the old Murray 12 hp tractor in my garage.
