model - 143307, type no. 502693, serial no. 189131

 

Post all the engine #'s, bet someone here can decode it!

 

 

You're liable to lose this bet, Kenny. That appears to be one of the early 6 digit engines that they haven't come up with dates for. It uses the serial number instead of a code number.

Yep! Once he posted the #'s it became clear!

So can you tell me what model it is?  Or I guess I should ask how do I go about looking for parts?    A couple of things I'm looking for are the engine pulley and belt size.  The tractor I bought doesn't have either one of these.  It looks like the engine shaft size is 1" . But what diameter pulley does it take and what type of belt?  

 

I have a lot of questions but this is a start. This is my first foray into anything other than John Deere lawn and garden tractors.  Any and all help would be appreciated.  I am trying to get it running but have no spark. Points look good, coil looks okay.  I might take it onto work and get it tested.    I really find this tractor interesting.  I can really pick them.  Somewhat rare and hardly any info out there.  I guess I'm so used to tons of info about Deere's this is a little different.

THANK YOU,  THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!  I had not seen that but it sure will help a lot!!!!   I have a Homelite but from what little I know so far they are all very similar with only cosmetic differences.  I think they were all mechanically the same in general.  That will be a great help!!   At least I know what pulley and belt I need. Now I just have to get it running!!

I tried looking on the B&S website and only got more confused.  I found the number range listed but not the year. I looked in the pre 1965 section.  Believe it or not the actual tractor that I just bought is the first one in Hanks pictures.

I thought  your avatar looked very familiar to me Tom, I could not believe it that's incredible .
