Hi Jackieb, Welcome to the forum, glad you found us. I'm sure everyone would like to see pics of your tractor. I might have an early Walsh shroud loose around here I can take pics and measurements of if needed. I'm not sure if the Walsh shroud changed like the Monarch did or not. The earlier ones were 2 piece and would be fairly easy to make. By the late 40's the Monarch shroud was one piece stamped similar to the twin. I don't have any Walshes that new. The engine is 4 cycle and uses an atmospheric intake valve. They either used battery and buzz coil or magneto for ignition. Al, somehow I missed this thread originally. If you can get the number from the tag of your cousins, we can determine the year built.

The tag is located on the rear vertical support for the gas tank. You can see the rivets for it in your first picture. The number was usually stamped in the front of the block near the oil fill plug. Another precaution on these tractors are that they have a plunger style oil pump in the crankcase. It feeds a trough that the rod dips out of. I like to clean and check it before starting if the engine hasn't been run in a long time. It's removable by a big hex plug in the bottom. Be careful, pieces will drop when its removed.

I love the old Standards I have 1-1936 on duel steel, 1-1946 on rubber and 1-1936 viking on rubber - all are twins. 2 of which I bought from the original owners and have all the lititure including bills of sale:smile1: I'd like to find a good set of culivators as mine are shot. I do have 2 plows a sulky and an orchard cart, use to have a firewood saw to, I do still have the belt from it.

I just uploaded a Walsh manual here: Standard Walsh Owner's Manual - Manuals - Garden Tractor Talk - Forums


Hello Doug, I am trying to get my standard walsh running and would love to look at that owners manual and downloaded it but it will not open for me. Am I not doing it right or is there another way I can access it? DSC03083.JPG
