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.

are those cast plates hard to come by? and is it a k181 that i am looking for? i know she is alittle rough, but that makes it worth more to me, looking for parts on something you dont see everyday! this is the only one i have ever seen, i knew what it was but had only seen pics. they must have not been very popular in southern indiana.

Not sure of the Kohler model number.
Yeah, sounds like the plate is gone, huh. Look up Dandy Sales online good place to start unless you find a parts one around.

I saw a coment I can correct on here in this post.

"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:"

These were also equiped with electirc start briggs. As I have one. Was all origianal when it can to me.

Dieselcowboy is 100% correct on this, and as I recall did a very nice restore on one of these this last year. Should be several threads with photos around here somewhere to help you see what might be missing. Good Luck !

If it has provisions for an amp meter, and battery box it was electric start; This would mean Kohler.
