Hey everyone,

 new to the forum and lawn/garden tractors.. my son just came home with one and is all anxious to get it running.

I'd like to start out by getting some info on what it actually is.... it looks like crap but we both like working on this type of thing so it may be a good father/ son project.

Hopefully the photos I attached can be seen..

any help or info is appreciated.. thanks for your time.

Welcome to the forum. I'm going to say Sears Custom as a first guess and MTD 990 as a second guess. Hopefully someone will be along soon that will know for sure.

I believe that to be a Springfield/Toro from the mid Sixty's, 64 to 66.

 

But I have been wrong before!! :wallbanging:

Welcome to the forum! Haven't a clue on the tractor, but it looks like something I'd drag home!

Welcome to GTTalk. I don't know, looks Sears like but I'm not that familiar with them to say for sure. Looks like a tractor with a lot of potential!

And, thanks for the pics. :thumbs:

 

I can't tell you what it IS, but I can tell you that it ISN'T a Bolens.

 

However, it won't be long before someone will be here to tell you everything you want to know about it.

Looks like a rebadged Burns tractor. No clue what brand it may have been sold under though.

I enjoyed the pictures, thank-you. Not a John Deere, Case, Ford or even a Cub. Maybe a Gilson?

It was probably badged as a Gilson. The older models were badged as Burns,Penfield and probably a few others. I do think that the chassis has a Springfield origin.Here is a real project verson that i had years ago. Different models / BRANDS came with Kohler or Briggs.

A huge Thanks to everyone on GTTalk...especially Texas Deere Horse...of course.

I really do appreciate everyone's comments and greetings.

I'm sure we'll need more advice and help as this project progresses.

We are in the southern Georgian Bay region of Ontario Canada so winter is setting in nicely right now.

with limited work space I'm not sure how involved we'll get until the spring..but my boy has already got the engine sitting on the bench.

Stay tuned!!
