I had this tractor '68 Lawn Ranger then sold it with 32" mower deck to someone on another tractor forum Red Square Wheel Horse for his '73 no name 10 HP AUTOMATIC IM000624.jpg
engine less I put a 16 HP Kohler in place to see if the hydro transmission works later on I mounted the correct engine in K-241 . BenIM000494.jpg

HOLY Wheelhorse 10 Auto Batman.
I just rescued one of these from the scrap shredder. It was headed there on a trailer under a PU truck. Steering wheel bent and a small ding in the hood. It sure held up that old PU well. Told the guy I would give $50 and I got it. I am more of a Massey guy but just could not let this old WH go to the shredder.
I later found out from some of the WH guys on this site that the Automatic 10 was only made in "73. Not sure how many were made but we (you & me) have 2 of them.
Mine actually runs and cuts with the included deck. Does need a lot of TLC but hydro seems fine but leaks. Can be fixed.
Yours looks a lot better than mine. I see I am missing a belt shield on the right side. I do not have that.
