I had a friend show up at work today with this walk behind wanting to know if I knew what it was.  He got it out of a barn when he was picking up scrap.  He was told it could possibly be a Speedex but I've never seen one this size before with the engine having the crank inline with the input of the transmission.   They've all been sideways with a belt or sitting above the input with a belt like a

Troy-Bilt.  There was no tag anywhere I could find on it only the letters EJIW on one of the castings.  It has 5.00-12 tires with massive 2 piece cast iron rims, the hubs are adjustable and have ratcheting pawls in them so it sounds like my David Bradley when you roll it backwards, a model 700 Clinton engine hooked directly to the input shaft with a tiny morflex coupler and another shaft right below it that turns the opposite direction at approx.  half the speed and there is a pulley on the crank that lines up with the shaft.  There's the remains of red paint on the handle bars and rims and a gray/green on the brackets that hold the engine and under the grease on the front if the transmission where the second shaft comes out.  Any clues as to what this might be would be appreciated.  He plans on selling it soon and I'm tempted to get it just because I've never seen one before.  Thanks in advance Stewart

The clutch lever may be a clue. I saw something like that in the two wheeled manuals section just the other day. Good Luck, Rick

Well my friend called me this morning saying he found a book on garden tractors he was given years ago and that there is a whole article on this tractor in it.  I haven't seen the book yet but the tractor is called a Leyland.  Possibly part of the company that made the Nuffield and Leyland farm tractors in England?  He's going to bring the book up for me to copy the article and hopefully it'll have some good information.               Stewart

The tractor is now mine. He brought it up this afternoon with the book he found it in and the book is the garden tractors by Alan King. I misunderstood him on the phone and the name isn't Leyland its Leland made in Detroit in the 50's. Going to try and get the engine running and a new tire. Stewart

Is the other shaft for a reverse?

Congrats on your new tractor!

Thanks.  I'm pretty sure the other shaft is for the sickle bar and maybe the sprayer pump, or the pump runs off the pulley on the crank.  Here's the page out of the book about it.             Stewart
