It defiantly has a 7HP Kohler as that is the engine tag information. I am thinking a good bath and a set of points and condenser will do as I hate to ruin its old patina.

 

I have not checked to see if one can even find the points and condenser for that old of an engine.

 

I need to get more and better picture of it soon.

thanks for the reply's.

Nice find, that looks like a nice original tractor, a good clean up and painting the wheels would make that thing look great. You can get the points condensors cheapest from pats small engine. Not trying to argue with you, but that is not a 7hp kohler. It would not fit under the hood. Apears to be the correct 4hp kohler k91 and you will need to make sure you get the correct condensor for it.

Found a picture of a restored one that is listed as a 1958 Ride-Away Jr. RJ-58.

Yep! You have desireable "Ball Burner" tractor! Looks quite complete for age, many are cobbled up by now. That little K engine is so cute! Wonder if hard to find those engine parts? I've only seen one at a Horse swap-meet once and was incomplete, but cute! Guess the other guy's know the models better and have put in info. They had later ones with bigger engines in same place, even some Clintons (Uck!) but moved up front later in years. Good idea! Ha!

GL,61 was the last year for the mid engine Suburban Wheel Horse tractors. As a matter of fact they even offered a front engine model in 61 (701). The biggest engine in the mid engine model was the 551.
