It is normally used for reverse.

Would it only go in reverse, or still go forward? Probably a stupid question, but I'm clueless.

Just use the crankshaft it will spin the correct direction.

If you need the PTO shaft just don't use it. Use the crank instead.

Nice grouping of implements and a good starting point for a restored tractor.
Now, I am no DB guru by any stretch, but I see a couple of things.

IDT the engine is original.
Here's a picture from Pat's Website

The plow that's mounted on the back is either a middle buster or a potato digger.

The unknown attachment almost has to be some kind of cultivator , weeder or etc rig, I hope someone can pinpoint it for you.

Thanks for Sharing your new tractor with us!

Is that the correct original engine?

The correct motor is a Briggs and Stratton model 143302 at 6 HP. Your Tractor is about a 1962 model.

Here is how you would use the PTO for reverse, this is on my TroyBilt Pony Tiller.

There or 2 belt tighteners, the bigger pulley is on the crank and is tightened to go forward. The small pulley is on the PTO shaft and is tightened to go in reverse.

There is a 3 groove pulley on the transmission.

You only tighten one belt at a time.

OK, I think I understand. So the 5 horse will work just fine, is it worth shipping and me trying to save?

Here is the same type of motor mounted on my 5756, I had to remove the hood to make it fit.

Do you know where I could get one?


I'm afraid not.
I got one on a "Super Power" I bought. The plate and engine was painted gold, so it's late '50's vintage.
The engine still has one of the "Low Tone" mufflers on it. I will restore it for display with the catalog page that shows the upgrade
