Just got this one running over the weekend. A few more things to fix and I will be ready to clean it up and paint it. It is a Farm-ett.

Standard Walsh.

Bought this one at auction back in July.  Haven't tried to start it yet.  Been setting many years.  Has a buzz coil ignition that is in bad need of a good cleaning.  Seems the battery was left in the box with the Model T coil and corroded everything up pretty bad.

Kris, Does that say Standard Walsh or Walsh Tractor Co? What's the serial number?  I'm seeing some of both there. I don't think Standard ever used the wood handles or the dished face rim. the carb, intake and air cleaner are later Standard.

Tag just says  "Walsh Garden Tractor"

Guess I never looked at the tag closely until now.  Haven't paid much attention to the tractor since I bought it.  I did look in the battery box and things are not pretty.  There are two very old 6 volt lantern batteries in there and a Model T coil with lots of corrosion.  Didn't get a starting crank, this one is setup to use a rope start which looks like a real pain in the keester to wrap.  Pulley is awful close to the wheel. 

 

Serial #:  D7045

 

Doug,  can you tell the year by the number?

That's the early numbering system and there's never been anything definite for dating. Theory could put it at 33. That would have been the last year of Walsh. The 32 Walsh Handiman used that style of manifold with Tillotson carb like used on the model R Briggs. The basic Walsh used the tube carb like a PB. The carb that's on it looks like the Zenith that was used on the later Monarchs.

I know ya'll have seen this one before - just trying to keep this thread rolling along. 

1936 Standard Twin.  Bought in October 2004 and its been to many local shows since then. It came with the cultivator shown and I bought the plow and disk seperately at the same sale.  Only the plow has been on it the last 7 years or so.  In fact it plowed a friends garden about a month ago.  Broke the throttle cable while plowing and thats the first repair it has needed since I've owned it.  The tractor has no governor so adjusting the throttle is an ongoing chore any time the implement enters or exits the ground.  Had I known how small his garden was I'd have taken something else - maybe my Howard tiller. 

 

I don't have any wheel weights for this machine and not knowing how traction would be where I plowed this fall I devised a way to mount a wheel weight on the Twin.  These are springs from an old trampoline I found in the city dump. Worked perfect and was quick to mount and dismount.  There was a flange on the weight that fit the Twins wheels perfectly.   Enjoy...
