How did they get the second speed out of them? Was it thru a belt change on a pulley and did the operator have to get off to do it?

They made two different speed ridemasters offered with a speed changer. There is a lever located between the two front tires that the operator could reach from the seat on the tractor One had a two thread worm gear drive an the other had a three thread worm gear the three thread worm gear drive ridemaster would really move out at least compared to the single speed models.

That must have been the top notch machine. I am surprised that they made one that big. How nice it would be to find one. I'll have to keep an eye out.

Honestly they are the nicest of the ridemasters if you ever drive one around you will see what I'm talking about the briggs engine runs so smoothly an having that higher speed is very nice! I have a friend you has one he let me take it for a spin a few times I have a two thread work gear drive ridemaster but mine has the Wisconsin engine on it It's nice but doesn't hold a candle to the model 38 with the briggs

On the one with the weights, am I just seeing rust patches or are those decals on the ends of the tool bar?

I see what your talking about I cant tell what they are.   If I would of been on that one faster I could be telling what it is because it would be at my house.

Was there an attachment that would've been over that point of the bar and shielded the paint there?

I highly doubt it was a decal for two reasons one the little decal is specific to the implements only an two the decal wouldn't last very long with mounting things on the tool bar. I believe that is a rust spot where a attachment was located on the tool bar
