Hello all,

 

As some of you know i recently purchased my first Speedex after years of wanting to add one to my collection. The decals indicate it is an S19 but since it has a Kohler engine i'm not too sure. I tried to find a serial tag on it but couldn't find one . Any info or insight anyone has would be greatly appreciated. I am going to get this thing running and operating and fixed mechanically then i'm bumping her up to be this winter's restoration project. She is a little rough and if anyone knows a good source of parts that would be good too.

I'm not sure the attachments are original. The mower deck is, but I don't think the plow or cultivator is.

Wow! Nice enough to leave in it's work clothes looks like to me!  No tags on these, look along frame rails, near front, think on left  for stampings in metal. Should start with Model first and then a serial. If it has been painted since new, might have filled in some, so look close. At times have seen them on the top narrow edge of metal, but usually on side.

That cleaned up great!  What a nice little tractor!

 

If you need engine parts, I would be happy to be your source.  Bearings, belts, and other things you are welcome to give me a try.  I carry the contents of a couple catalogs worth of parts, so sometimes I even surprise myself with what I can get.

Wow, that cleaned up nice. I would probably leave it like that if it were me.

 

I have one that looks similar, or I should say my daughter has one since i told her she could have it. Have ot get mine running someday.

See I would leave it like that if it were original paint, but someone a long time ago slapped a bunch of paint on it with a brush. A lot of it peeled off when I pressure washed it though.

Great looking tractor. These tractors are easy to restore especialy if you get it sandblasted first.

Nice find..These little tractors come apart easy..take alot of pictures before hand..Have fun with your new project..Not many new parts around..If you need engine parts talk to Ben from Oldpathsequipment...Nice gentleman to talk with..Look for the number on the frame below the engine pulley..should start with letters then numbers..(Example.BB 337)..you can find what year it is in speedex maunals under misc..Not quite sure right now..but I have found it...Good luck and have fun.

Found the serial number BB 825. Anyone know the year of manufacture?

List of problems with the engine though. Broken governor, broken fuel pump and no spark. It has new points and a condenser so it has to be the coil or voltage regulator right? I didn't have any power to the plug when I tested it.
