Not sure how you would go about fixing the carb intake on that motor. Didn't see a gas tank on it either. Nonethe less , it's a neat machine and I've never seen one before. Thanks for sharing.                                                                                                                                                                                                   Roger

If you google them there are some neat pictures of them. Looks like it's missing a round nosed hood.    I can't transfer the pics but they are kinda neat.         Roger

The engine isn't actually the right one for the tractor. It should have a plain model 23 from the early 50s.

Someone dropped that motor, decal is scratched and a dent, carb broke off, spark plug is broken. Neat little tractor though

Some of the story about the company is correct, the owner did not however die in that plane crash, that actually happened before he started making tractors, the story is in an is in  an issue of LAGT Mag. just don't remember which one at the moment.
