Neat! This is the first wizard tiller I've seen of this model!

 

So what does that cast iron chain cover say? Is it stamped Wizard or blank, the Bolens ones Had "Bolens cast in them"

 It has a 4hp kohler that tilts from the side to tension the belt.

I looked at the chain cover and it appears smooth with no stamping.  I will try to get all the numbers off the motor maybe later today.  I will roll it out and try to take some better pics also.  Does anybody know if recoil start was available on Kohler in this time frame?

 

Thanks again

Tim

I  believe Kohler offered recoil starters on some of the K90/K91 engines starting in the mid-1950's.

What does anybody make of the ID info.  I saw something about "A" meaning 1965, and other things saying pre 1965 didn't indicate a date.  It would be nice to figure out if the motor could be original.  

 

Thanks for the help

Tim
