I recently purchased an antique garden tractor. I believe it started its life as a Page front engine tractor. Someone along the way modified it alot. I love the way it looks. but i have a bit of a problem with it. i am missing one of the rear axles cover, bull gear, hub and all. any thought as to where i might be able to find them???????????

I'm not sure how much of this tractor's lineage can be traced to a "Page" GT.

I have a 1963-4-5 ish Page tractor as a project tractor and I don't see many pcs that look similar.

I don't know if there are other tractors that used the same parts that could be sources either.

I can post some pics if that would help, but some other folks have similar tractors to mine and have posted in the "other brands" as noted above.

Good luck!

Chuck

I saw a video on YouTube of a 1957 very rare page tractor and it looked really close. I'm not sure if it would be exact fit but.

Here are a few more pics. I thought i would also tell the story I was told about the mods. The gentlemen I bought it from told me that some engineers from I.B.M. got there hands on the tractor in very rough shape. They then decided to make a new stainless steel hood, fenders, and, well what turned into a hole new body and hydraulics . Also they revamped the 3 point hitch with stainless steel hardware. Then the person that ended up with it after that took apart the rear end an lost parts somehow. So when I was introduced to her i just couldn't turn my back on it. he had mentioned he was going to part it out for the rear tires and hydraulic parts, and scrap the rest. I just couldn't let it go. I probably payed to much but I think she deserves to get another chance. So thanks for all the help in advance.

Original poster is correct. This tractor sure started life as a Red-E or Page tractor from the late 50's to mid 60's. It is modified, but the front end, rear end, and frame (modified at rear) are from a Red-E or Page. Unfortunately I have to say the parts you are missing will be hard to find. Not many of these tractors survived, and parts are hard to find.

Adam, did any of the economy tractors use that style drop down? Maybe the Jim Dandy? It looks familiar from somewhere but I can't think of it.

Get a VW bus bull gear rear end you could make that work.

Just a thought but I recently saw a bolens GK that had very little hope of restoration, possibly the bull gears and final out of that would work for you. Also seeing as you have one side you could have a good machine shop with the right tools cut you new assemblies out of aluminum, the gears can then be bought.

These drop gears are unique to page and red-e. They cut there own in house and are not repurposed from other equipment.
However, with work I do believe a talented fabricator could remove the existing drop gear boxes and possibly install economy boxes. The Dana rear end is similar. The gear ratio in the drop boxes may not be the same though.

Fyi, this generation page and red-e tractor are not built by economy. These were manufactured by Red-E and sold by red-e and also under a page version.
