I think you did right by getting them.  I would have if they were close to me!  If those large rear ags are good, there's your $200!

They are cracked, but they are huge, like 8x16 or 9x16. The one ag on the round nose has a big slit, maybe able to get patched from inside, shoot the tire stays up without any air.

I've already got a couple offers, I could probably clean up, maybe get running and easily double my money.  Remodeling house is #1 priority right now, they are now in the old horse shelter.

 

You really got my eye out Daniel, I would love to make the square nose a diesel, twin if I could find one.

 

It's really funking how the motor slides to engage clutch. Push pedal and it pushes motor forward and off you go....I think. HAHA

The PO said he used the square nose to pull a 12" moldboard and it pulled like a monster with that 10 Hp diesel he had on it. He said he had plow, but couldn't find it :wallbanging:  :wallbanging:  :wallbanging:

 

He did throw in a very old potato plow and Troybilt hiller/furrower :rocker2:

Square hood gets my vote. I have three similar.  That is a BW92T 3spd trans, same as Power King and Crosley and many others used, but turned sideways in these. That motor movement is very short, bet 1.5 to 2" max. Pedal over-centers so you don't need to hold it all the time and can relax. Mine also have a brake that pushes on same pulley on trans when pedal is rocked back to stop it and maybe the tractor too if not going too fast. I have a hand band brake on rear chain sprocket also that is hard to use, but holds much better. Far as models there should be numbers stamped into frame on drive side below engine. Might be on wide side of frame metal or on thin topside. Might have to scrape or sand some there to see them. Mine also had a tin plate same area with 4 digit number on it, but isn't model or serial and no one could say why those were on there. Mine all have the stamping. It won't show up on rusty frame w/out cleaning,, and might be filled in by paint now on these. Seat is higher and bigger wheels on that one. Might find covers at a show or on ebay, OR, if handy could make them if you had one to look at to copy. The dash is mounted to top of the belt guard, so that is why it seems loose. Other side just goes to one bolt down on frame side. Everything on a speedex must have been an afterthougt and was never designed too well. They took old orig plans and added this to that and attached hap hazard. Worked good all as a unit, but not when parts are missing.

Nice purchase.

 

Do you still not want the round hooded tractor? Because I would be glad to take it off your hands.

At the moment, my daughter has claimed it and will get painted light purple :wallbanging:  :(  :D

I want to try to get the motor on it running and see what I have, probably wait until spring though, I didn't want to go outside this morning to feed let alone work on a tractor....even though I'm headed to a friend's to try to start a Ford 8N

 

I also noticed, it looked like blades on mower deck are connected by a chain. I need to look through manuals, but that would be interesting.....especially with the timed blade issues on the Massey bigger decks.

Yea like that. If I remember, we had the discussion, my daughter's name is Kalynn too, spelled the same too! I would probably paint frame back though and just tins  purple, wheels pink to make it easier if I wanted to go back to red. There is actually a purple Speedex on one of the websites I was searching.

 

So, I looked but can't see the frame numbers where they are supposed to be.

I did get a few numbers off the Briggs from the round hood.

 

23D 0138 01

 

10 HP???

Marty, I believe that engine is around 9+HP, but they are stout for 9hp with a long stroke, so they pull like a mule!

If it is a 9 Hp, then that makes the round hood a S23 model, it was only model that came with a 9 Hp Briggs.

the later one looks to be a 70's S24 and the other may be a S23
