This tractor looks like it has smaller tires and a different hub.

The hubs are just reversed. I've seen them installed both ways on the pics I've seen so far. I worked on the engine this morning and it's alive! The points and condenser were crusty, the points plunger was stuck, and the old three leg armature was a crusty mess. I had another 3 leg armature, points and condenser. I cleaned the flywheel magnet, freed up the points plunger, and installed everything. I also changed out the carb with a known good one. I gave it a shot of starting fluid and it ran for a second. I installed a clean sediment bowl and a new fuel line and put gas in the tank. I gave the rope a pull and it started right up! I adjusted the carb and took the tractor for a ride. Man is this thing a snail, but all of the gears work and it's a fun little machine to drive. I have to hook up a kill switch and choke and throttle cables now.

I've been noticing that the rear fenders have been mounted at different heights on some of the Page tractors, and some have different fender mounts. There are other differences also. There is red paint under the orange paint on my engine, so I'm thinking it's the original engine, and my tractor may have been made in '64 or '65,due to the engine date code.

The rear tire size is 7-16, and here is a pic of the engine tag. The engine is a Briggs 23 DFB.

Hey Classic,

 

I see you had your flywheel cover off, which I need to do on my Red E with a similar Briggs engine but am having troubles, never doing this before and wondering if you could help.

 

My big question is how does this pulley come off? I took the big nut off the front and assuming it is pressed, tried to use a 3-jaw puller and managed to break a chunk off the pulley lip (darn, I'm mad at myself for that one) but it didn't budge. I don't think it's keyed, but seeing the nut on the back side, wonder if it's threaded?

 

Thanks, Rob

I sent you a message Rob. A picture of your pulley will help us figure it out. I might be able to locate another pulley to replace your broken one, too.
