and download the manuals for 990148 and 990155. I think one of them includes the 990159.
The 1961 MW catalog is posted in the Files of this Group
What you have is likely similar to the Simplicity VC model.

Ok I got some new numbers. They are off original engine. Model 19 Type #706029 Serial #596306 Can you tell anything from these?

B&S engine serial 596306 was made in March of 1959 so likely a 1959 model tractor. The 1960 models most likely came out in October of 1959 so there is no guarantee. Depends how long it took for that engine to land on a tractor.
The model 19's came out as 7 hp and this was bumped up to 7-1/4 hp in 1962 for the same engine. Guess that was the start of the hp race.
Have the parts list for this engine if you need it and possibly the service manual also.
