I've never posted to a forum but have seen that a lot of great information can be collected through one. I purchased this Wheel Horse and was wondering if anyone has an idea as to what year and model this might be. I can try to answer any Questions that might help to identify it. Thanks in advance,DickIMG_2356.JPG IMG_2354.JPG IMG_2355.JPG

Welcome to the forum. I believe that is an RJ series but not sure exactly which one. They are commonly called a nut roaster due to the proximity of the engine to your crotch. It looks to be in good shape.

That's an RJ35 or an RJ58 from the late fifties.

Maybe it would be advisable to wear a fire retardant cup for prolonged usage........protects against heat and the rare event when you through a rod through the side of the engine block. Welcome to GTT by the way.

That is either a 1958 RJ-58 or a 1959 RJ-59. The very early '58s had leather shifter boots and no casing numbers on top of the transmissions. They also altered the lift arm in late '59. Other than those differences almost all the '58s and '59s were so close to being identical that the identification decal was the only way to tell. That decal was originally on top of the frame, on the left side, just behind the grill/hood front. The fendeers and toolbox were an option on both years. Reproduction drive belt guards are available if you can't find and original.
