I went to an auction yesterday and these were not on the sale bill, so I thought I would not have much bidding competition. Wrong, I did get them bought though.

It's mostly complete, only missing the starter /generator and shield, and the seat. It's not really my brand of tractor, but they look cool all painted up.

It's pre 66, i think. it has the hand clutch and foot brake. Later grill tho...
I think it's a 65 Suburban 8 or 10

Think it may be an 8 that had recoil start?

It is an 8 hp, what year I have no idea. It has a pully for a starter /generator, but the starter /generator was not on the tractor. It does not have a recoil either, so I am not sure what it should have. The engine is not locked up, so when I get some free time I may try to get it started. I hope to start on my shop addition this week or next

looks to be one of the last Bradley models made. 644 or 645. 646 was the 10hp. Tec motor used a different system than the briggs one, where you didn't have a starting cup, you used a notch in the belt ring to wind a rope.

yes I believe it is. tecy's never offered any easy way to start one with a dead battery.

 

I don't think there was any key start model either. what you got was a key/push button system. A lot of times the key was only a kill switch control. More info could be figured out with the model numbers off the tag on the left side of the gear case.

Sounds like it might be this one.image.jpg
No idea what the three digit number would be. Lauber is the guru there.

Okay, I actually had a few minutes to look at the Sears tonight. Lauber was correct about the key switch, it is just a kill switch. The model number is 91760645 and the serial number is 30923. The only parts missing are the grille screens and the seat.

your tractor is a 1965, 8hp model, with a 143559012 Tecumseh engine, using recoil start.

Thanks for the help, now I need to figure out what I am going to do with it. I will try to get it running and go from there.
