   I need a little help here fella's, I am helping a friend who's barn burned down and we came across a belt guard, after closer inspection and talk over a cold beer he thinks it may have come from an old wheel horse he had years ago.  I have an RJ and this is not the same so I was wondering if you anyone here had a suburban or other small wheel horse form the 60's and could snap  pic of the belt guard for the rear end or me so I can compare and find the rite machine for this.  I will get a pic of the one I have late tonite.

   I know some of these can be worth $$ and would hate to throw this one in te heap if it can be put to good use.

That is a suburban belt guard...measure the width of it, the 400,550, and 401 use the same width, and then the 551 guards look the same, but are a little narrower because they used a different transmission. If its for sale, I may be interested depending on price.
