I will be getting this tractor this weekend and Isome questions about the tractor. It is a 1974 or possibly 1975 Dynamark 8/36. It has a blown engine and is very, very rusty. am just wondering if anyone else on here has one or has seen one like this before. Also what is the origanl colors supposed to be? I would like to rebuild the origanal motor but I might install a 11 HP Briggs for now just to get it running. I am not going to make it a off roader or make it a racer, this will be a trailer puller and brush mower unless I restore it, then it will be a trailer queen. I belive this model has a cigerette lighter and a couple gueges. It is one of the oldest Dynamarks I have ever seen. I can get a few more similar to this but newer for about $25 each at a old lawn mower graveyard a few miles away. I got this one because it is the oldest. It should be delivered on Sunday so when I get it I will get more photos

Welcome to GTT. I have one similar that is rusting away in my bone yard. I think it was red and white originally. Mine has a cast aluminum grill. I know very little about it. Right now it is buried under 10" of snow with more to come this weekend.

If it was a 1976, I'd say it was supposed to be Red, White, & Blue.

After seeing the new pics of it, I think these had a red hood, rest was black. Been a while since I seen one.

The seller said the engine was blown but it turns and has compression. There is no sign of a oil leak and its full of oil. The valves appear to work fine. I dont know why he said it was blown but I am going to try and rebuild this engine. I want to restore the engine and the mower deck and transaxle to brand new condition but I want to leave the frame and body alone. It took over 3 decades for it to acheve this unique look so I want to keep it that way. What I want is a rusty old almost 40 year old lawn mower that runs, drives, and mows like new

I've picked up several blown engines that just had stuck exhaust valves. The engine turns over real easy so, they think it is blown. If it is then left where the valve can close with time the compression comes back. You were lucky. Put some Marvel Mystery oil in your gas and always leave your engine on its compression stroke with the valves closed.
