I'm thinking it's an older Ohio Steel myself!

What brand of motor is the 16?

Its a Kohler single 16. K341. Big thumper. It makes for a good combo with the 2 speed sunstrand hydro. Daniel had warned me I would like these tractors. He was right! Tahoe, we should talk a little more about bringing that 1855 up. It would look good with its elders.

Sounds like the trailer will make a great firewood hauler. I'm gonna look into putting a wider set of tires/wheels on. Maybe go to some 6.50's instead of the 4's. Thanks all for the info. I gotta finish my 420 project then plan to get this running. One thing I noticed is the electric clutch is missing. They rigged up a cable attached to a lever next to the footrest. The cable is attached to the tensioner pulley on the mule drive. Guess no one wanted to get another Pto clutch. The switch and wiring is still there. Should be fairly easy to fix back to original.

If you can shoot a pic of that tightener... Might be fun to see.
Glad you like the tractor, sounds like its going to be well cared for.

Nice, another 16 on the block.

Yes, those K341s are nice engines. Check the rubber engine mounts.

They're usually toast if there's any oil leaks.

My MF trailer is the same as Alan's, err, I mean Ryan's.
