Looks awesome! I can see why you couldn't pass it up. One day I'll nab one. What do you plan on putting in it?

Looks like a model "T75". GREAT FIND!! With electric start it would have had a Kohler, Rope starts were Briggs powered. Since that one looks to have an AMP gauge it must have had the Kohler. I believe they were 8 horsepower and run a starter/generator combo. :thumbs:

Please allow me to settle the arguement.....send it to me!

Yours has the front grill I like....both Pennsylvania and Panzer are raised letters. Later models had Pennsylvania in raised letters on the front grill and used a sticker for the word Panzer (like mine) and some just had Panzer in raised letters on the front grill.
I added a pic of my Panzer at rest after a hard afternoon of 'work"

You came to the wrong place - no one with those little toys on here!!!

Still reading???
It is a nice piece. Little rusty but still very good. Is the panzer tag gone? The 8hp kohler was the engine in that model that guys seemed to like the most. But anything that will fit and with a 1 inch output shaft will do the job with work... Just ask the guy with the 16hp honda clone sticking out the side... :smilewink: If you don't have any of the engine, then the one thing you will have to find is the 3-groove pulley for on the engine output. Start with Dandy Sales on that.

Nice find on the Panzer! As to your question about the motor mounting. There was a cast mounting plate that the engine would bolt to. The plate then was mounted to the tractor frame with 3 rubber mounts. If your tractor was an electric staart it would have had a Kohler and if it was a pull start they had Briggs engines. The engines would have a 3 step v belt pulley along with a rubber drive wheel on the end of the crankshaft to drive the tractor.
