Interesting,I would say that the steering wheel in the center photo is probably not original.Of course not know Bush Hog,I am most likely wrong.

Possibly a replacement engine in the "unrestored" unit? The engine casting is different.

Caseguy......the old unrestored has a Tecumseh H100 in it......they did offer these in some units.....I am thinking it is original but may be wrong. I am picking up another parts d4-10 that has the tecumseh in it as well......most units had the Wisconsin from what I have seen. Good eye....

Maynard.....you may be right on the steering wheel.....I was not sure.....hopefully it will be confirmed either way....

I've seen a lot of gas tank straps on other brands moved on top. Probably the PO had it out & said he'd never have to struggle like that again...

After looking at over 7 other Bush hogs....I am 100% sure both steering wheels are correct.....I have seen the deeper dished one on 5 other bush hogs so I know it was original......I am 99% sure the flatter one is an older model and so I am going to bet all the older models have this style steering wheel.....

Yep, that steering wheel is correct. All I have seen that had the later style ID plates with the hog pic on the plate had the deep dish steering wheel. All with the older ID plates have the low profile steering wheels.
The fuel tank strap bolts are supposed to be on the bottom, but as been said, quite a pain to get back on the bottom if removed.
