Tim do you happen to have any pictures? We have a bunch of great Bush Hog people on here, but I know pictures will be the best way to figure out what you have.

Good luck with it! They are great GT's!

I just saw your in Kentucky, One of our top Bush hog guys lives there. (olcowhand)

Have you looked at Ebay for parts yet? I did see a Motor for sale for one of these this week. The carbs come up form time to time to.

That is a Wisconsin engine right? (S7D or something like that) with a Zenith carb.

Welcome to the forum! Some pics would be very good at getting this figured out. Besides Daniel, there are a couple others that can help figure things out and possibly a lead for parts!

Welcome to the forum! Always glad to have another bush hog guy here!! Like they have said a few pictures would help alot. If it is a D4-10 it will have either a tecumseh or wisconsin in it. We need to know which one.....a model number and serial number on the engine would help. What you will find out quickly.....daniel and some of the others have a keen eye and will notice things many times I/you will miss.

I have several parts bush hogs so there is a chance I may be able to help once we have all the info.

The good news is you have come to the right place. With our members help, you will have it back up and running in no time!

The D4-7 and D4-10 have the same body parts so keep that in mind. The D4-10 is more common so you are probably right that is a D4-10 but we need to confirm it so we can point you in the right direction.

Looking forward to having you on board!

You live very close to Bob Simmons who has several Bush Hogs & tons of literature. He lives around Lewisport, Ky.
Get us some pics, some close of the engine, and other areas so we can ID it. The ID plate should be on the lower right of the dash panel, or if it's a JB series, the tag is behind the engine, on the front left of the dash tower box. But you likely found the holes where the original ID tag was, so no matter.
You're just a couple hours from me, at Hodgenville, Ky.

So it is a direct drive with a bell housing type clutch, and 2 speed rear with 2 speed forward tranny?

the only thing i hate is my dad had two of these but the other one was belt driven not direct drive but i used it to clear off our churchs parking lot for years it had a belly plow and one on the rear and it ran great but when we moved he gave it to one of his friends so they could still use it for the church but now its gone he gave it away to someone else but atleast i still have this one

Tghe one he gave away was a "V" series then, with a std trans and a variable pulley to fine tune speed. It's a shame it got away.
All we need to do is ID the engine to dial in the model. Can you get us some close pics of various angles on the engine? For one thing, if it's a Wisconsin, and the cylinders bolt to the block, then it's definitely a D4-12.
