Kohlers are nice, but some fabricating would need to be done for the gas tank to fit. If you don't care about original, check Harbor Freight for an inexpensive motor. Personally, I would track down a Tecumseh. Good looking tractor to start with.

That looks like a decent original machine and the deck appears to be in good shape too. Nice score! I will say that the front wheels on the Lawn Ranger should be 4". Those are original Wheel Horse 8" front wheels (the spindle length is specific to Wheel Horse so wheels from other brands don't fit right) and there are a few folks on here who are looking for a set when you find the right ones for yours ;)!
The engine, depending on whether it's an L-107, or L-157, should be a Tecumseh H60-75118F or H60-75117F respectively.

Does not look impossible. Rough, but it has lots of potential! It looks like its all there except the engine. Good luck!

Not sure if you need a vertical or horizontal shaft but the blue wonders you can get on E-buy are actually pretty decent. I have used both and I think I got them for about $100 shipped to the house. They work good, not a lot of torque, but for the tractors I put them in that was fine, just running them around maybe towing a cart.

Here is the horizontal engine link... http://www.ebay.com/...=item414b9a50d1

I paid less for mine, you can also buy them used on there usually for like $40. Pretty good deal really.

100_2369.JPG 100_2370.JPG just to give and update. the lawn ranger now moves on its own power. i had two 6hp tecumseh's given to me, one electric start and one pull start, i'll give you one guess which one i installed. i still had to do some mods to get it to work as it is a different series motor, and had to come up with a different tank and figure out how to mount it. still alot of work to be done and alot of parts to be found. right now i am needing the fenders for it along with a seat if anyone has some spares please let me know.

here are some updates on the lawn ranger. couldnt find a set of fenders so i cut a 13 x 15 piece out of the old ones and welded new metal in its place. since the bolt holes are recessed i had to figure out how to mount them. i took 4, 3/4 pieces of 1" o.d pipe and welded them to the fenders after i drilled 1" holes where they mount. i welded washers on the other end of the pipe so i could bolt them down. i decided that the seat pan is to far gone to repair so i found a old cast pan type seat and mounted it instead. here are some picks, let me know what you guys think.100_2533.JPG 100_2534.JPG 100_2535.JPG 100_2536.JPG 100_2537.JPG 100_2539.JPG 100_2540.JPG

100_2596.JPG 100_2597.JPG 100_2595.JPG getting really close. still have to paint the motor, install it and wiring. found a new seat pan, have to paint it and have it re-covered. I kinda like the old pan seat on it though, it has deering cast into it.
