Took me a second to figure out what these extra bars were for.  On a Springfield.

Was it for keeping the mud from building up in the rim?

Jeff,  my one Springfield doesn't have them either.

Very good guess Doug!   ......  but not correct.   The seller thought they were mud scrapers too.

 

They are part of the reverse.  Basically the backing plate of the hubs must be stationary because of the way Quick designed their reverse.  This bar clips to the very back of the main frame to hold the backing plate and keep it from rotating with the axle.

first I thought of that, but It didn't make real sense to me to put the tractor in ground that wet, as how could you get the tooling to work. later I wondered if it was some part of a reverser system, similar to what db used where a rod moved apart in the hub.

Sorry,  that's the only pic I took. The tractor was for sale at a tractor shows flea market.  I had a full load with my display so no way to haul it home. 

I wanted his Wizard w/sickle mower but it had already sold.

Update:  it brought $75 and went to a member of the family.  He said he'd have went to $100.

Here is a tractor that you don't see everyday. It is a big Simplicity. Wards sold this as the team-trac. The engine dates to 37. This was being used as yard art for over 10 years. The exhaust had been plugged. It still turns over and has compression. It doesn't roll though.

One for the DB crowd, 1949-1953(near as I can tell) brush and tree saw, blade rotates 90 degrees for buzz rig work, grease fittings inside the wheels, clutch is controlled with a shifter fork and pressure must be applied constantly (a nice safety feature)the paint scheme is a dead ringer for my 917.5751 and should look great as a pair. As rusty as it looks this was a barn find and everything but the throttle is free

had a lot of parts and pieces lying around, so I decided to build my own version of a walking tractor. Started with a wards/simp chassis  add some wooden handles, that are offset to the right,  used a DB motor mount to get the engine farther forwards, installed a modern 900 series briggs, then sat down and built a vator based on a PJ design, complete with a one lever gauge wheel adjuster. plan to use this one in the garden, and its only 21 1/2" wide.

another lady friend of mine calls it the weed slayer. If it don't rain more today, we plan to test it in the garden this afternoon.
