Does anybody know of a good place to get decals for these tractors? I have tried Maple Hunter and they said that they did not have them. Thanks Eddie Kansas City, MO

I doubt anyone will have them because they are a rare tractor, but ypu may be able to find them on a site dealing in Montgomery Wards decals. Not certain but could.

If you have enough of you original decals left I am sure you can find someone to reproduce them for you. It is obviously going to cost more money but as with all things rare it usually does have a price tag.

ive got a wards just like your squire 12 there, but i have no idea as where to look for a id tag to check and the whole thing has been repainted by the previous owner, but for 50 bucks for a good runner with a belly blade I didn't care.

If it is made by Quick MFG you will usually find the ID tag under the seat under one of the seat spring bolts.

Hey guys, new to this site, found it when I was looking for information on what I thought was a 1966 montgomery ward 8hp lawn tractor. Now after seeing EGWARD79's pictures of his 1964 squire 71/4 and it looking exactly like mine, I think I was wrong. Anyway, I am looking for info on the transaxle, I think mine is a 1700 series 3-speed, any info would be greatly appericated, I need some internal parts.

:welcome: to GTTalk.
The Squire and some of Mont wards were manufactured by the same company.

Here is a picture of several tranny models and where to find the model tag.

If its a 1700, I might not have a manual uploaded and not sure if I have one... Will have to look.

If it is 3 forward speeds it is a 1700 series (1300 jumps in my head though but think I'm wrong). If it as 4 forward speeds it is a 2300 series. Regardless it is a Peerless transaxle.

montgomery ward.jpg axle.jpg Thanks for the link, but my trans doesn't look like any of them. I posted 2 pictures, one of the tractor, and one of the axle. I do have more pictures of the axle from different angles if that would help.

It is a 3-speed and the tractor was made by springfield, I posted some pics. Now i'm going back out to cyberspace to see what else I can dig up.

Here is some cutaway stuff

I know it is from a John Deere forum but it is highly relevant, and the actual manual.

The shift lever and shift tower are pretty worn and the shifter is really sloppy. The shift forks inside the trans are sliding hard and I think some detent springs or balls may be buggered-up. I really don't want to try to take it apart if I don't have to without at least an exploded view of what I am getting into if you know what I meen.

If you scroll through the manual I linked to the 1200 series (page 65-67) it will walk you right through that transaxle.
