Hi, I'm new here but I have been working & collecting tractors for some time, mostly Cockshutt farm tractors and Wheel Horse garden tractors. Recently I acquired a McLean Husky and know very little about it. Fact is I surfed the net for 4 days just to find out what it was. There is very little info out there for these tractors. I have a lot of work to do on this thing, including machining all new parts for the transmission and returning the rear end to what it should be. If any one has any info or pictures of these tractors that they would like to share I would be very grateful. I have included a pic of what I have to start with.

Welcome to GTT. The transmission may be an "off the shelf" type. Let us know how you are doing and ask questions. We try to help. Good Luck, Rick

The transmission consists of two sets of chain drives for forward, high & low. There is a gear to gear to chain drive for reverse. This is all contained in a box between the frame rails. It is belt drive from the engine to the tranny. From the tranny to rear is belt drive on each side, from there it is chain drive to each wheel. Pic is what the transmission should look like. Second pic is what mine looks like.

Most of those parts look common. Try Wholesale Tool and Surplus Center for the parts. Good Luck, Rick

This might give you a little background if nothing else.  You may have actually found it already but it was worth a shot.

Welcome to GTtalk glad to have you. Looks like a fun & rewarding project. Like mentioned a lot of the old stuff used common parts especially inter changing with others. I like the nose on the grill. I wonder if that had a medallion or decal in there. Don't be shy we're all here to help & enjoy your project with you.

Thanks David, I had found this site, it has the most information that I have found on these tractors.

I believe the front had a decal because there are no holes for mounting a medallion, not sure though. It's little details like this that I'm looking to find the correct answers for.
