I brought this home on my trip this weekend. I believe its a Speedx, but am not sure what model. I think the engine was supposed to slide on the two rods under the engine, but someone had butchered it up and add some foreign parts. Pretty sure I can restore it to original if I can get some pictures of what it looked like before.  The engine is a Clinton, B704COE, and runs real well now that I cleaned the fuel system, and replaced some missing/wrong parts to the carb and linkage. Any one out there have one of these??

I think that's a model C.  speedextractorinformation.com has a lot of pictures of the walk behinds.  The engine was supposed to slide on the rods.  Hope this helps.       Stewart

Mines never had the gauge wheel nor the pivot point, i see there is only one on yours with no provisions for another and it is a steel wheel.

 

The plow was interesting, built more like a mini sod plow or prairie plow with long point, only cut about 2 1/2 to 3 inches deep, 5 inch wide, very short beam on a offset hitch pivot point.

yes it has the gauge wheel, and I belive it to be correct, just not mounted right. The ones I've seen in picture had the mount rod pointing down, with the wheel assembly on the under side. Most of the pictures only show one wheel, on an adjustable arm.
