This popped on CL and after a couple of hundred miles, it is now in my overcrowded tractor hoard. I love the early odd balls, it looks to be around a 1950. It had several motor swaps, I sure dig the addition made along the way to run the battery system. They were even sharp enough to keep the original belt guard with it. I haven't had much time to really look it over, but it seems to be very original and shows no signs of real damage or paint work. Any thoughts or info on it would be appreciated. Thx Tim

Sweet.She's got a nice heavy frame under her to.
That's begging for a big 16hp Briggs or Kohler and a big nasty sounding stack.

Always wanted one of those in my collection, let a nice one get away a few years back. Great pick you made.

I think I have a Briggs 14 which should be the original engine, I cant figure out what the piece of wood under the hood was for. Does anybody know if these have a live rear axle, it is super hard to turn by rolling and steering. The guy I got it from thought the box under the seat was for a battery, but I am pretty sure with its age it was just a tool storage box, it seems original and even has a decal on it.
