I have spent allot of time with it yet. I will get the serials off it and get them to you. Not sure about the engine it does have the plate on it and will try to tell what engine size it is. Are those clutches hard to find to make the deck work?

 Impossible to find the clutches.  There must be some out there, but would be the luck of the Irish to find one.  Mine was welded solid to where I have to roll the belt on & off the pulley to use the deck.

Is there some other model that would work on it?

If you don't mind something non-OE, then yes, many options.  One could use a PTO clutch off a D4-10, modify one from an older Cub Cadet, or even just slip on an electric pto clutch.

I would like to make it usable so non OE will have to do. The engine has a date of 1972 on it so not original. As for the serial it doesn't have one, see photo below. Is there anywhere else that it would be located?

Looking at the serial plate sticker and the shifter being where it is located, it is an early model. The only other serial number is the transaxle serial number. But at this point that would not be much help. With it having that sticker as the serial plate, I would guess less than 1500 on the serial number of the tractor.

 

What size motor is on it?? I can't read the Wisconsin serial plate in the picture.

The Net Cont BHP on the plate says 4.49. The plate also has a date which appears to be Sept 72 on it. The serial number on the plate looks to be 5154357. The model number has BKND at the end of it, I need to do some cleaning on it so I can see the numbers more clearly. It appears to be model number of 14BKND. I also looked the serial number up and it appears to have been manufactured in January 1972.

Rub a sharpie across the numbers and wipe real quick after that. Should fill the #'s enough you can read them better.

BKND alone is a model. Not seen a number ahead of that. But I'm not well versed in Wisconsin.

Can you take a real close up of the tractor ID, sometimes you can see the number even though it's faded off. And it almost looks like a second ID tag under the one you can see clearly.

Also the "BKN" is a 7HP engine that started production in 1955 and I think was replaced by the S-7D in 1962 so I doubt that that engine was built in 1972. I bet that is the original engine that Bush Hog had on the shelf in the early production of the T-63. 

 

I can't find any record of a "BKND" engine being built by WIS..

I will give the sharpie a try and see what happens and take another photo of the serial number up close as well. It will probable be a few days before I can get it done, it has been hectic week.

I like the fact that there is a date stamp on the tag.
