I picked up another Waterloo Model 40.  It is a train wreck, but at the price I couldn't say no, especially when I saw this mystery part.  Anyone have any idea what it is for & how it gets used?  I thought originally it was a reverse mechanism, but there is no connection to the axle.  I am thinking it might be a PTO for something, but for what?

I agree with the PTO theory. 

Did Waterloo have a rear tiller option?

Not that I know of.  It had reel mower & sickle bar mower attachments, but they where both front mounted.

    I don't know much about walk behinds, but by the looks of that I would say it is a gearbox used to change the rotation direction of the engine.  maybe someone re-powered it with an engine that spun the wrong direction??  Good luck

Is it possibly a mechanical lift? Does it turn at all right now?

looks like a reverser to me.  might be a part missing, but I looks to be an over riding belt reverse.

I just saw the aluminum pulley was part of this.
I agree with reverser, but how? I also thought h-l range or speed reduction of some kind?

I can't tell, if you turn the one set of pullies, are there two gears inside or one. Does it do a direction change input to output, or is it the same direction?

The answer seems to be yes; they sold tillers in 1955, 1956, and 1957.  The tractor falls between 1953 & 1955, but this could also be a later date purchase.

 

The silver pulley rotates opposite to, and slower, than the top pulley.

reverse with separate belt pulley clutch 

Any idea how it connected to the axle or driven pulley?  What would the belt routing look like?

i do apologise it is not a reverse , i since drew it out on a peace of paper to realise it is just a reduction box going by the pic views  , the silver pulley is driven by the motor which drives the  reduction box which then the small double pulleys drive the large rusty pulleys which in turn drives the final wheel reduction , the silver pulley & reduction box moves back & forth to act as a belt tensioner clutch ( neutral & drive engagement ) The motor & silver belt drive only needs to be a lighter belt than the other belts as it dont have the same load on it , thats the best i can help you with it from what the pic's show me
