A guy that I just picked up a tractor from also has a LF with a 14hp Wisconsin engine on it. Trying to get some photos of it now, but it's been repainted and I couldn't see the model number in the photos.

 

My question is, what all LF models came with a 14hp WIS. engine in them?

When you get photos see if you can get all 4 sides and the dash area.

I would guess that it's a G-14 maybe? It has a 6 speed manual trans.

Sorry Jerome, that's all he has taken so far.

Gonna have to say it's a 1054 with the 10HP Wisconsin. The 1254's had solid state ignition which used the modern style ignition switch (1721409), which has the 5 straight prongs and quick connect wire harness plug.

Its a tubeframe but I'm going to be conflicting the guys  and say this is a 1053 looking at the rear fender, the 1054 would have had the style of a 1050, which this one does not have.

I'm saying a model 1053.  ...The paperwork I have shows the 1053 using the 1719143 key switch (3 screw terminals), while the 1054 used the 1721409 key switch (5 flat terminals).

 

The 1053 was a 1970 model. ... The 1054 was 1971 & 1972.
