Interesting piece. Wonder where the rest went?
With that choke built into the throttle, may have been a Teccy engine

I didn't know that home depot was around in the 70's. They certainly weren't around northern Illinois for sure back then.

I have had several Briggs with a similar set up, my Yazoo (8hp Briggs) has the Choke and throttle on the same lever.

There's the start of your custom puller/racer folks! That's a lot of tin work for $30.

I like it, it would be a good puller or parade project but too far away. Good original graphics too. That is a lot of metal for $30.

Moore's sold a tractor similar to that in the 60's-70's, as well as Husky's. The hood doesn't open anyway, so no big deal. What is "Twin 8"? Surly not a 2 cylinder 8 h.p. I get the electric(start), but the twin 8 has me puzzled. I'd like to have it.

I think the twin part refers to two blades in the deck,many tractors that size had only one
