Pretty rough but most of it is there. Met a great guy and enjoyed talking bush hog garden tractors with him.
Has most of the rear pto assembly and maybe a rare factory option. Lets know what you think.

Too many! Just ask my wife!
I pick them up every where. This one was a pretty good drive north of me.

Scott,

One thing I notice right off the bat is the pto handle. The latch plate for lack of a better term is enclosed on yours. Mine is open where it is just a open hook for the lever to catch.

 

Is the other lever to control the lift? If so that would be a much better way to have it. Reaching down so far on the side while trying to do other things is a little bit of a pain.

What I can make out on the lettering of the 2 from the HD-12 on the hood looks like the lettering is different too.

 

So what serial number is this one?

Does not control the lift, the second handle operates the rear pto. The first time I saw it in a picture, I thought it was a po improvement. When I saw it on person, it looks to me to be original. I have never seen it in any literature. Will post a better picture when I get home.

Here are some pictures. Serial #5404

Like I said earlier she is pretty rough. But I do think the rear pto handle/shifter is factory made. What do you think?

Scott, It sure looks factory to me. What a neat find, and I'm with Daniel, I would love to just have one of them.

 

Congrats!!

I left this for last. Hard to believe as well used as this HD-12 was, the rear tail light was in nice original shape!

and the front grill was still there.

Going back through my Bush Hold manuals etc....I have found that there were two types of Power Take-Off Speed reduction units. Model S3126 which is like George has on his, and Model S3705 (manual/brochure dated 6-68) which is like the one found on mine. So this confirms the front handles, etc are original bush hog parts. The front shifter and rear piece were attached by a wire piece and not a rod. The diagrams below will show the differences.

Yep, definitely all OE!  Ithink she looks pretty darned good myself. But Scott, if you find her a bit ugly to keep around, I can do my best to plan a road trip to your place & bring all you find too rough back to my place!  :D
