I am going to pickup a T63 today and been looking for information on this tractor. This GT has a Wisconsin engine and looks to be mostly complete minus starter generator. It does have a mower deck with it but doesn't run. Any information on it would be great.

Some of the questions I have are below:

What years was this model made?
What size engine came on them?

Welcome to the forum! The T-63 was made around the end of 1962 to 1965. It would have come with a Wisconsin S7-D motor. It was the first model Bush Hog made.. It was later replaced by the D4-7. Good to see another one is being saved.
Key thing to look for is the condition of the cluster gear and what type of shape the transaxle is in. Pull the cover off the transaxle to look at the cluster gear. Then push the tractor (out of gear) and see if it is "catching". If there are issues in these areas, can be costly to fix. Good luck!

I got her home along with a Massey MF 12. Both are kind of rough but I think both are buildable. I really like the looks of the BH and am hoping I can get her going without massive amount of work. I got the Massey to start so the plan is to do a little work on it and sell, unless I get the urge to restore it to.. These projects for me are slow because of time restraints but really enjoy working on them

Will get some Picts tomorrow and post.

Good looking T-63, shouldn't take much to get her up and running.

Looks like you got a good start. The front PTO clutch is missing to run the deck, but everything else seems to be there. Please let me know what the serial number on the motor and tractor are for the registry. Hope it will be an easy one to get running.

Is that an original model engine sacsr?

Thought these ones used an S7D, This one looks like an S12D or similar, Definitely a replacement though as the color of it confirms it.

I will need to check- my s-12D have the starter generator on the other side. That oil cap has me a little confused - will compare it to the two T-63's motors I have at the house.

No, the engine doesn't look to be a 7hp.  And the pulley on the front of the engine isn't "model correct".  Should be a ball lock clutch up there.  Other than that and the missing battery box, it doesn't look bad to me.  Has the octagon deck like mine has.
