We were told it was a 55. Here's the registry page. http://gardentractor...country-squire/

What engine did they have?

    I said I work on them. I never said I fix them!

Yep, very readable ID tag.
That's how we know what it is at all. We got this Way before GTT (just thought it was neat)

If it didn't have a hood or dash, where'd the kill switch mount? Did they come OEM without?


You're probably asking more than anyone can tell you I'm afraid.

They were offered with either a Wisconsin AEN or AENS or a Briggs 23 FB. If you can read the tag, what is the serial number?

OK, it's a 1960, not a 55. That changes the engines. Wisconsin AENL, Briggs 19FB or Briggs 23FB.

I believe your tractor has a Briggs in it? It would have a little button to push on the points cover that would ground out the spark. It would have to be held down for a few seconds for the engine to shut down completely.

EDIT: I just noticed there was a second page! It looks like Jeff is already on the case. :thumbs:

I just watched the video, it looks like it has a Wisconsin in it? I don't know about the kill switches for those engines.

I just watched the video again and I agree, it's a Wisconsin. I don't think there was any rule of thumb concerning kill switches. My Pond has a Wisconsin AEN with a kill switch on the steering tube. Don't know if that set up is original or not. Some engines had a piece of bent spring steel mounted on the head that came over the spark plug. Simply touch the steel to the spark plug to kill the engine. Look closely at the head bolts to see if there is a brokem piece of thin steel on one of them. If there is, that was your kill switch.

I think there is one on the side of the magneto. That's where the kill switch wires in now. The PO may have just done that for convenience.

Thanks for the lesson guys, I now understand a lot more about these critters.

That's where the wire on the Pond goes to, the magnito.

Just remember, the more you know, the less you know.
