:ditto: on missing the thread. That's a really nice tractor you got there, does the engine look original?

I love the look of these, so minimalistic. I can't believe the deck is still there!

That particular engine is apparently too tall to clear the hood when closed? I wonder which engine really belongs in it??

I somehow also missed this thread! Many years ago I owned a Suburban just like this model, but mine had the usual Briggs model 14. Man how I'm still kicking my own butt for letting her go! Never knew of a Wisconsin option.

That's a very cool looking Suburban! Didn't David Bradley make those ones?

I'll throw an Amen on that! I was just making that same comment to my wife. God forbid that you miss a day, You're 6 or 7 pages deep LOL! It's amazing how quickly the site has grown!

I missed this thread too, great machine, but the engine might not be right for the riders. The Wisconsins were an option on the walk behinds, mabey that listing got mixed up??

And as for buried try missing 3 whole days of this great forum, you get about 6 pages behind of New Posts, and that's only because it doesn't count the repeat reply threads (thankfully).

Your 619 would have came with a BKN wisconson and a recoil starter. From the picture it looks like the mounting plate is missing that goes under the engine. It should be painted nugget gold and electric blue. This is the only model of suburban that used a wissy engine, great find as there arent many of them left.

Good news on getting the engine to fit. It looks like you got it in there without modding the hood.
