The only idenification mine has on it is the tag I posted a picture of. It does have a carburetor, but no air filter and it turns over (probably because, the hole is most likely from a slung rod) I would be very appreciative if you'd be willing to trade, and I'm sure the DB would be to!

Congrats on the new toy. I have a pair of wheel weights like those on my Magna-Trac parts tractor. Do yours have a label? The engine is not the correct one for the tractor. Good Luck

Yes, I'll go look and see what the numbers are tomorrow.

One thing you might check is the motor mount plate, it may be different. On my 575144 there are reinforcements on the on the plate, it is shipped with a 6 HP Tec motor. When somebody mounted the 8 HP motor they may have modified the plate for the bigger motor.

Sears also sold a mount plate with their re-power kits. It has theaded bosses to bolt the engine on, and the kick stand is on the other side.

that's nice, I think with everything you got you didn't really get taken. You have alot to work with there. From what I can tell I would say its right about a 1958-59. That's where the serial number brings you. Congrats, can't wait to see it finished...

I know my older models have the kickstand on the right, and my 144 has it on the left. I don't know when they changed over.

Do you know where I could get one?

A 5 HP Briggs should bolt down on the original plate just fine. I mounted one on my 5756 without drilling any new holes.

I'll go out in a bit and take some more pictures of the 2 different mounts.

Here are some more pictures of it.

Here is the PTO shaft, it is an extension of the Camshaft and spins at 1/2 speed and in the opposite direction.
IMG_0511.JPG
Here is where the throttle cable hooks up.
IMG_0512.JPG
IMG_0514.jpg
It also has a rod sticking up beside the carb, I believe this was for a manual throttle.
IMG_0519.jpg
Here is the mount on my 5751 it has extra holes and the kickstand is on the left side.

IMG_0513.jpg
Here is the mount on the 575144. It has the kickstand on the rightside.

Here is the extra reenforcement, it had a plate thin steel plate and 4 pipe spacers under it. I was shipped with a 6 HP Tec motor.

I don't see any numbers on the motor, and it doesn't have any oil in it. The carb linkage is free, and it appears to be complete.

You said that it spins opposite of the original? How would I overcome this obstacle?
