Forgot to add this. After wheelin N dealin 2 tractors, I didn't have nuff money, so I had to run for more cash. When I came back, the PO was draggin er out with his Speedex. He had er in low, and was next to the t75 walkin beside it steerin. TOO COOL! Took couple picks of that too. The sliding engine for belt engagement is wild!
 

Here's  2 pics of the tower, and the towed! As promised.

My Pennsylvania does not have "Panzer" on the grill. Would my serial tag still say Panzer? Did the tags change?

Yes it would say panzer on the tag. Which could be Red or white. I know that one of the castings didn't say panzer on it they ended up putting a decal on it. Big Al would know why.

They went to those grills without PANZER down the center when Pennsylvania Lawn Products first took over the company. Right - there was a PANZER decal down the center The grills with both names cast in came later.

From what I am reading from Jim Haynes page.  All Panzers produced after 1960 were painted Turquoise and from 1961 to 1963 all grills read PANZER only.  Pennsylvania Panzer was on all grills after that.  I do not see anything about PENNSYLVANIA only.

I see the tag does not show the ES for electric start, but the dash has an ammeter. That kinda throws me for a loop. Maybe someone had an engine with e/start at one time, and added the gauge? I just don't know.

:thumbs:

 

I woundered the same thing. My T75 is missing the serial tag and has a replacement motor. I have a ammeter as well, but no evidence of a battery tray so I am guessing my tractor was originally recoil start too. Not sure why it has an ammeter?

You ask for "man porn", and you shall receive. 

 

Little off topic, but the guy I got mine from has a restored one that he keeps in his toy hauler, and I took some pics for you guys!!!

He said he used 57 chevy turquoise.

The fact that neither have evidence of a battery tray, but to have ES dash panels is strange. Even more so with the tag ID stamped as just a t75. I wonder if they just ran out of the correct dash panels, and just tossed on what they did have in stock???? Im sure someone knows, but it ain't me. :)

I had a t75 with the hole had a cover on it where the gauge should be. that tractor may not have had electric start. or it was put on by dealer. Chain covers had the holes in them for battery wire.
