Purchased this yesterday. Hoping to restore mechanically at the very least. I have read much useful information already and would like to thank all the members who have posted. No serial number present on dash or tunnel. No tag on bellhousing. The motor serial number appears to be di0123 and motor spec number appears to be 4717b. I can't read the model # on the motor but the hood says 12hp. I have read that the tractor serial number may be present on the frame under the left footrest. Is it usually on the underside of the frame or the top which is covered by the footrest/tunnel sheet metal. I am hoping it's not on top. If it is I will need to unbolt the rear loader bracket to access it. Let me know what you think about the tractor. I am open to any and all suggestions and look forward to participating in the forum.

That does not look like a PK loader. For that you should be thankful. The loaders they offered at the time were ok but not the best.

Not a bad looking loader, it looks pretty strong. But, the loader looks like it was from a bigger tractor, and may lift higher. So, be careful not to roll it over!
I do agree that it looks like it has some parts from different years on it. It does appear to be from '65 to '67. The thing that caught my eye was the 3 point, I don't know if they different one that early or not.
gl, I have heard of the 24" models with 12 hp engines.
