Hi, I just joined. I just purchased a Quick Mfg lawn tractor, it says 2 speed 4 hp on side of hood and 25 on front of hood. it is reddish with a white seat and metal rear fenders, has solid rubber tires. there is no mention of springfield on the tractor. Tag says model 66LT-425, serial no. 98606. It looks older than a 1966 , what would be the year? any info would be great, the steering wheel and the hood emblem is missing, it looks like it has a newer Briggs on it, did this have a clinton motor?      Last winter I restored a 58 Fairbanks Morse riding mower, also have a Moto Mower, Gemco and an Arctic Cat rider. Jim

Your Springfield rider is a 1966 model, as shown in the 66LT-425 model number.

 

The original engine was a 4hp Briggs & Stratton - model # 100902 type # 0144-01.

 

All Springfield equipment was manufactured by the Quick Manufacturing, Inc, in Springfield, Ohio.

 

Here is a link to the 1965 Springfield brochure showing info for the 65LT-425: http://gardentractor...re-1965-models/   .....While the paint color may be different for 1966, much of the info will apply to your model.

Welcome to the forum, Jim!

 

If you get a chance, post a picture of that Fairbanks Morse machine.  I'd like to see that!

Someone wanted a picture of my Fairbanks Morse. It's painted the original color. Purchased it last year and restored it over last winter. I started doing some of my small projects, otherwise I will never get them done. I did a peddle car the year before and I started restoring a 1957 Hackney Kiddie Car for this winter. Maybe the Quick next winter if I can find a steering wheel. jim

thank you for all the info, I checked the numbers on the engine and it's the original. Does anyone have a closeup of the hood emblem? mine is missing. Also does anyone have an original steering wheel for it?
