Nice tractor, is the engine built by REO like on the reel mowers because that engine looks very much like a REO engine.

No, that's a Clinton or a Tecumseh/Lauson.  It does have a similar stream line style.

Those mowers were actually built by Wheel Horse after they bought out Reo.

OK, looks nice shape, kinda like a Kids play rig. Give it to the kids!  I really HATE those ride-ons of the past myself. Being Reo brand, guess it has more value though.

Likely those bolts just hold split rims together, and is still a slide on unit.

Daniel, those 3 bolt rears reminded me of the ones on an MF7/8.
