I have had this tractor for 20+ years.It was in bad shape when i drug it out of the woods and went thru it to get it going.I used it with the original model 19 for about 15 years until it smoked bad and used too much oil (the cylinder was worn bad and had already been bored once).I had a longblock under the workbench,that i had picked up years before that i pulled out,checked to see if it ran.It ran good so i put all my tin,carb and linkage,starter generator,etc on.This engine didn't have any numbers that i could find.All the tin fit great but there are a few little differences between the two engines such as the points are not setup quite the same.Anyway,with all this rambling,my question is what is the difference between a model 19 and a model 19D ?

Nice little tractor. I just picked up a 725. They are both much more powerful than you would expect for their size. The best source for info on these old B&S are the B&S Repairmans manuals in or Manuals section. The older and newer have almost all the info you will need. I've used mine for 35 years and still discover new things in them. Good Luck, Rick
