One reason for this trip was to pick up two V series Bush Hogs I had recently purchased. Both were V series tractors. Both need a lot of work! I am going to document what I can on the VE3-6 first.
It has a Tecumseh motor serial #5067. Based on the info I have regarding how to figure the age of this motor. It was built in 1965 on the 67 day of the year. Interesting that it was built on my birthday! March 8th.
According to the price list I have, the VE3-6 was built in 1965 so that should match up pretty well. The serial number on my V3-6 is 6003....so it could be an early model V3-6. It does have the tube front end which kinda verifies that possibly some of the early 65 models could still have been built using up the round tube front ends in stock.
