Saw this and tried to figure it out.
Looks like a 10" rear maybe?
8 on the hood. Think it says 4 speed too
I may be able to get closer but there are no trespassing signs to respect.

Weird bolt pattern on the rears too

That's a weird one for sure. The 8hp, 4speed (called a "No Name") was only built in 73, but I don't remember them having 10" rear tires. It sure looks like a 8hp Kohler under the hood. Maybe you can stop by again one day and check it out better.

I have an original brochure from '73. The 8 hp 4 speed no name did have 10 inch rear wheels and 6 inch fronts. its also a shorter wheelbase at 43.5 inches as opposed to 45.5 for the regular garden tractors. Its what some of  the Wheel Horse crew refers to a mid frame. The short frame tractors are 41.5 inch wheelbase. If you look at the front of the tractor and see how close the engine is to the hood you will see where they shaved the 2 inches from. The 4 speed B80 from the early 70's kept this mid frame going for the next few years after '73.
