The transmission is ruined.  Does anyone know what transmission might work in this Page?

Thanks,

My closest guess is 50's on the year. Not sure if you can find the exact or not. My grandfather owned one of these. I will see if I can find some pics. of it. Looks similar to yours. Had a Wisconsin engine. I don't know if you will be able to find a transmission. They had one speed forward and reverse.

Thanks LTD for investigating this for us.

 

We have a Wisconsin engine for this Page.

My husband said he could make something work for the transmission.

It would be nice to find the right parts for it, though.

 

HI Ben,

The steering wheel looks like the one on the AC-G.

The letters AKN are first on the serial tag of the Page garden tractor.

If you have the engine, you can date the engine.

You might have a hard time finding a replacement transmission. It looks nasty inside, but try cleaning it out and see what happonds

Awesome looking GT.  Hopefully you find the transmission parts.  Wonder how much it would cost to have the parts machined?

 

Could be coincidence that the serial number has AKN - since AKN is a Wisconsin model number for a 6.2hp motor.  That would be about the right size motor for that era.

 

If the AKN was an indication of the motor, then according to the following site, the AKN was made between 1949 and 1955.

http://www.asecc.com...sin-models.html

This could give a smaller range of dates for the tractor.

 

 

According to the following site, it looks like Page started making 4-wheel tractors around 1946.  That supports the date range based on the Wisconsin AKN motor.

http://gasengine.far...tor.aspx?page=3

 

 

Again - all of this is based on a guess that they referenced the engine model number in their serial number.

Page made a 4hp and 6hp model. There is not much info of this tractor available but there is some found in the Page yahoo group.

 

I have a similar Page tractor here at the shop that has a Wisconsin ABN that is dated 1949

Hi Adam,

I wish it was that easy to date this Page. (By using the original engine as a reference point.)

We bought this Page without an engine.

 

Oh, yes the gears are pretty well worn and degraded.

First, we are going to try to use another transmission from an old tiller and see if we can make it work.  

Thanks,

DB1

LTD,

Thanks for the picture. Nice to see it in action, too. 

What color of blue is on the Page?

Is it Ford Blue?

Thanks,

DB1

Thanks for the compliments guys.  This one was just too cool to let it get away.

One of those just had to get it.

 

It is good to know that the worm geared transmission indicates that it is an earlier model.

The earlier the better for us.

We just love collecting the older models.  But, they almost always are the ones that are the most difficult to get parts for.

 

Hi Motobreeder,

I agree that AKN could be an indication of what Wisconsin engine was used on this Page.
