Hello everyone!
I am new here but have lurked for a bit.
I just ran across this Wheel Horse about 2 hours from me that I took these shots of.

The tractor was in the area my father in law lives so he went back to check on it after I returned home.
He told me the owner said the tractor ran, e thought there was a bearing out in the rear and that maybe the rear housing leaked.
He also wanted $50 for it.
I bought the tractor.
I work in a machine shop and have a boss that has welded cast with great luck.
What I would like to know is what model it is. My search tends to place it as a 633.
Thanks and I really enjoy the forum!

:welcome: to GTTalk, nice looking Horse. (good buy by the way) :thumbs:

Thanks for taking the time to introduce yourself & for the pics. I believe the model serial is on a tag under the gas tank, mounted to the dash tower. It won't say "633", it will have a more specific number than that & one of our members should be able to translate to what was on the hood originally.

:wave: Ganick Farmer Welcome to GTTalk! Like MH81 said, there should be a tag tucked up under the dash, but if it's missing, some data off of the engine will help some of the more knowledgable WH guys ID it for you. It looks to be in great shape and you certainly got it at the right price! Thanks for signing up!

:welcome:

Highly doubtful that it's a 633, but I would need to photos of the hoodstand / dash area to get a better idea.
It looks more like a 753 that lost its starter/generator and most of the covers / belt guards.

The ID tags were not used until the 1965 model year. This tractor should have a rectangular "chrome" and black shift pattern / serial number sticker on hoodstand.

This is that area on a 633:

No push button for the starter / no ignition switch / plugged ammeter hole with bat-handle toggle switch to kill the engine.

The engine would be a Kohler 6.25hp K-141T with recoil start only and magneto ignition.

When you can get to it, post the numbers from the engine ID tag.

Thanks again everyone.
I will try and get some info posted when I get to bring the tractor home.
In the mean time does this tractor use any implements other than a mower?
I have a John Deere to do that chore and was wondering about this WH.
I do plan to use it to do other jobs around the place, I have a pull behind tiller[motorized Haban], chipper and yard sweeper. So I do plan to use it.

If it's a 6-7 Hp unit, it probably wouldn't have much for driven implements beyond the mower. That's not to say this isn't a versatile machine. With the slot or Sleeve hitch, you will be able to attach many different plows, cultivators, small discs, etc.
This machine would've had a sturdy dozer blade available and probably many other attachments that I'm not familiar with. Hopefully one of the WH guys will have more complete info & looking forward to more pics & the true model#.

I am not sure it is a 633 but a 633 did have a Kohler here is what I found

633 1963 Lawn & Garden Tractor 633 4-Speed Kohler K141T-29102A7 Wheel Horse 5025

By the picture I do not see a starter and since it has a battery tray it should have had an ign. switch, amp meter, battery, starter. You can check the Kohler number to see if it is that engine.

I begged to differ on the work this little thing can produce. Those old round hood Wheel Horses were great at working. They could handle a snow blade, snow blower, single moldboard plow, cultivator, etc. Check out this 1963 brochure: 1963 Wheel Horse Brochure - Manuals - Garden Tractor Talk - Forums
