It didn't come with a motor.  I'm trying to decide what to put in it.  I thought about one of those 6.5 hp clone engines.  I can get one of those for $99 and they are easy to get more power out of.  There is also a 13 hp honda available locally for a reasonable price but i don't know how well it would fit in this thing.  It is quite a bit smaller then my 12.  There are also some 5 hp briggs available locally for cheap but I don't know if that will be enough power.

Look for Tecumseh Formula engines on Ebay.  They are nearly identical to the engine that came in your tractor and would not require much work to make them fit.  Somewhere on here I have a thread about putting one in my MF-8.

I ended up buying a 5hp Briggs. It fits in there great. I think it will be enough power for the light plowing it will be used for.20140920_103429.jpg

Where can I look up what year it is?

 

There is a serial #/year breakdown in the manuals section here.
