Welcome to the forum. I have a carcass without an engine. They were called the Little Bear. According to the book I've got on them, either yours is a newer model or has a replacement engine. Don't see too many around. That one made it quite a ways from home if its in Alaska.

It isn't in alaska, found it in Springfield Mo. I'm in the process  moving to Mo.  So tired of long cold winters.

Welcome aboard!   Those dishpan tires look like farm tractor rims. 

 

I spy a Clinton on board!  If you need parts, let me know.

I can't blame you for moving. Alaska never seemed like a place I'd want to live. Ohio is bad enough. I'll see if I can find the manual. It's been awhile since I've seen it or the tractor. Seems the odd thing about it was the hitch. Kind of like a pivoting vertical C with a round hole for the attachments.

I used to have one of them, short of the engine. There was a lot of attachments with it and they were well built. Seems likethe one I had was painted  yellow.

Thanks for the info I clicked of your link for the manual and got a message that I wasn't allowed in that part of the forum. 

I will be talking to every one. Not real sharp of the computer.

Gold; you need to make a few more posts before the forum lets you into the manual section. After that you will be limited as to how many manuals you may download at a time. I believe this was to stop people from joining just to slurp up the available info and then disappear forever...Dave

He should be able to download up to 3 per day with a low post count. There was a setting that needed tweaked. I think George has it all fixed now.
