Well I went to look at what the owner thought was a Yanmar and came home with what turns out to be a Shibaura 14. The guy took it on a trade for a large tractor and wasn`t interested in keeping it. It comes with what I think is a Shibaura roto tiller. Everything works and no smoke so I figured I couldn`t lose for 1500$. Looks like somebody has spray bombed the sheetmetal so no decals were visible and the metal tag didn`t match up with anything YM. After much digging I found a pic matching and some numbers that match the tag.
Any info or experience will be appreciated as well as website, etc where I could obtain parts/ info. I need to know approximate weight first to know how big a trailer I need to go pick it up.
I also found out thru the numbers that it is real close to a Ford 1300. Looks a lot alike too except for sheetmetal.
Thanks in advance for any help !! Should be fun!
