I recently got a Springfield tractor at an auction and I'm not sure what year it is. I want to restore it but I cant find any parts online and I'm not sure if it has the original engine but its a Briggs and Stratton. Anybody know anything about these?

Welcome!

 

There is a section in the Manuals forum (see green bar above) devoted to Springfield equipment.

 

However, there is a limit on how much info you can download in one visit.

 

To get you started, click on this link: http://gardentractor...identification/

To me the motor looks original. The older ones always had a starter/generator.

 

The way to tell the year of your tractor, locate the ID plate. It is usually located at the bottom curve of the seat spring. 

 

The first 2 numbers of your model number is the year of the tractor.

 

I would guess yours is between a 1961 - 1963.

Nice looking Tractor. In the interest of getting you some info... Would you mind taking and uploading some front, back, left, right top and bottom pics.

Also one under the hood might help the guys.

Everything I see looks original except the front tires and wheels. Looks to be 61-63 range. does it have 1 brake band on the tranny or one on each back wheel? 61-62 had them on each wheel, 63 had 1 on the tranny. take the shroud off of the engine and there should be a date cast on the flywheel. that should get you close on the year. I noticed that you have the deck brackets. did you get the deck in the deal too? Looks like a good start to me. Parts for the briggs are available with some searching, but the tractor itself are quite a bit harder to come by. I have parts manuals for the 61-63 and i think a couple are on ebay now. Good luck!

There was another one of these tractors, that I believe was for sale on the net. I cant seem to find it right now, but it had been in a fire and only had smoke and heat damage to the litest parts of the tractor. I go to a lot of sites everyday so it may take me a while to find it.

Hey thanks guys sorry for the late reply. I would put more pictures up but I have it apart right now. I still dont think its the right engine because the hood was bent to go around the air intake on the carb.

You have definitely been paying attention. I would add something more but you covered it all so far. Thanks for keeping these guys informed.

As for the tractor, great score and I hope you can get it restored to like new condition.
