Very nice sharp tractor!  I would love to own one of those.  The Wisconsin BKN is a great power plant, I have one on a homemade generator and it always starts like a champ.

      The steering is worked by a cable in the tube , much like a weed eater . Some day I may have to replace it , I'll go with a sewer machine cable . Gears in trans are straight cut , no shift on the fly .  The company  was a old machine factory , war effort you know . so they are built tough . Around 600 lbs shipping , 1/2 to 1 1/2 in first , 6 mph third gear .
