Tail light on the D4-12 is different. It is the same tail light as the JB. This later models used PM tail lights.

How many I think we're made or his many actual serial numbers? I think less than 200 were made. I will have to check how many I have collected serial numbers on. Probably less than 10.

I did not end up buying the D4-12, but I did find a D4-10 in Michigan that I am going to purchase and have Fastenal ship for me. It isn't the nicest looking tractor but it at least looks pretty straight and original. The owner told me he used it to mow until he started having issues with the PTO.

The engine must not be original as it is green and actually is a Wisconsin TRA 12D. I know virtually nothing about Wisconsin engines since I've never owned a Bush Hog or Bolens.

Unfortunately the headlights along with the grill screen and emblem are missing. I am hoping to find them without having too much money into this tractor. I know Scott has new grilles and Summit has similar headlights.

Still worried about the emblem. It would be nice to get ahold of an original but even a reproduction would be nice if anyone has looked into it any further. I've even been brainstorming ways to recreate an emblem using some variation of the new Bush Hog logo and script.

That wisconsin is a Factory replacement engine, I cant read the serial number can you post it here?

The green was the original colors of these engines if you were to buy them direct from Wisconsin, this means this engine was never sold with another Tractor originally and was likely a OEM replacement for this tractor

 

I dont know much about these tractors so cant say if those tractors originally used a Wisconsin or not......

It does appear to be all original and pretty complete right down to the seat cushions. Wisconsin tra10d is correct for that tractor and original factory engine may have been replaced. This one is from near the end of production based on the white wheels and appearance of the serial tag. Should be just before the switch to the Tecumseh engine. Make sure all the parts make the trip like the guards for the deck and battery hold down that are laying around it.

Like I said, I don't know much about these tractors or Wisconsin engines... yet. I thought D4-10s were10hp, and that a TRA12D was a 12 horse.

I will make sure to mention the battery hold down and the guards. I did notice the bracket but didn't know what it was for. The info on the engine is: Model # TRA 12 D SPEC # 336913 Serial # 5058998.

Anyone out there have a spare emblem to sell, or interested in looking into making a reproduction?

Yes that was oversight on my part. They went from wisc tr10d to the tra10d to the Tecumseh hh100 across the production run.

That's cool. I imagine the engines are basically the same aside from displacement and I'm OK with it. Previous owner must've thought a couple extra horses wouldn't hurt. What is the difference between a TR and a TRA?

 . What is the difference between a TR and a TRA?

The TR wasn't 10hp....only about 8 1/2.  The TRA is a true 10hp engine.

I suppose the engine could have been replaced at any time, but interesting that it isn't much, if any newer than the tractor. I don't yet know the serial number of the tractor. I wonder if it was a warranty replacement.. Is it possible that this tractor could have originally come with a Tecumseh? Or would the Wisconsin not be a direct fit if it was originally a Tecumseh?

Generally there's a good chance it was a warranty repair if the years are close to the tractor date. The wisconsin definitely was never sold with another tractor though as they only came green if you bought them separately from the factory.

Tecumseh hh100s started being used at sn 10152.
