Good question about the starter/generator - never even thought of that.

 

Took a bit of looking, but I found the following picture of a later model than yours.  The starter/generator is below the carb.

I'm confident the colour isn't original (a bit of over-spray on the battery?).  But if you look past that, the rear tires, seat and several other details are original.

Cool, I never seen one like that

Well Here are some pics, as I said before I found a complete engine up at the jacktown snow show in bangor pa this weekend and I was able to use the carb and gas tank as well as a few other parts to just about complete my engine.  At least I was able to get it running and found a belt that would allow me to see if it drove, and it did!!! All I need to find now is the elbow for which the oil bath system would be placed on as the engine I found up at jacktown was from a snowblower and didnt come with one, Also I found that the engine was manufactured the same year in which the 6020 moto mower was made...1966....according to some info I found online I believe.  Anyways...Heres the pics....oh by the way The engine thats one the tractor smoked on startup but doesnt smoke at all anymore, but it seems to shutoff after running it some, and wont start right away...spray starting fluid and it starts right back up so im not exactly sure whats going on but thats about the extent of it....Heres the pics...

I'm guessing your tractor predates 1966 - only because it has the rounded nose on the hood.  The rounded nose was the style started by Porter Cable and kept for a while by Moto-mower.

 

I haven't found a serial number/year cross reference - like cub cadets and other GTs.

Unfortunately you don't have the original Briggs motor that would have allowed a guess.

 

The more I learn about motor-mower, the more discrepancies I find.

Good to hear that you got to run around on it.  Before you go too far, did you check the transaxle oil?

 

The running problem might be a dirty carb.  Make sure the gas tank vent isn't blocked.

I was able to run it some today, but its so cold I wasnt able to do much, I will check those things later on when it gets warmer...if i got it on my camera I should have a cold start video at 15F, but man did it smoke, it was really bad hopefully I got it on video, it went away after about a minute.....Until I can see If I have the video, I leave you with some awesome pics of what I found today......

Well, Wanted to give you guys some updates on this thing from the last week or so...I was able to get some time to change the rear end fluid there was infact some water in the fluid, but I filled it up with some fresh stuff and while I was at it I also had a chance to replace the fuel line, filter and I also added a fuel shutoff.  After doing that I remembered about the fuel cap possibly not venting, So after a close look I came to the conclusion that the cap vent hole was blocked so after clearing out what looked like a small twig I found that the tank was venting and I havent had a problem with running it since then :dancingbanana:   Just for the heck of it I took some warm water and a rag and wiped it down on one side to see what it looked like and I found a before and after pic so here are those

My buddy has one just like it but it has a tag that says Rototiller made by Porter Cable   Syracuse, NY it's a really cool and neat lookin tractor. The original color of his was white & black.

I believe mine was black and white originally as well after sanding some
