Here's a better pic of the carb. It has the 4 plugs but they're not square. So if this is a 4 ball carb the probability of it being an early one are pretty good?

That's the 4 ball carb. Maybe my feeble mind was wrong on the square plugs. If it wasn't the early tractor, you've got a good start on the makings of one. Check the spare flywheel real close around the hub for cracks. If it's good, we only need to come up with one other.

You might want to switch the handles around on the Beeman, I`ve had a few over the years, and the handles always point down at the operator end. Nice finds!

The plan is to make them longer like they're suppose to be and switch the handles too. They're really ackward the way they are now.

Went for another drive yesterday and picked myself up another Beeman.this ones a little newer than the last one. The bad thing is it's stuck in gear. Have to find the thread that talked about that.

That is a nice looking tractor. Does it have a serial number?  Here is the thread that I tried to explain the clutch.  http://gardentractor...1920-beeman/?hl= beeman

Most likely but sometimes I question myself on that. Seems there are a lot of G20 numbers and I don't remember any G21 or G22s. Near as I can tell, Beeman tractor Co was only 20-22 and was reorganized as New Beeman in 23. Whether they made them all in 20 and spent the next 2 yrs selling them or just called them all 20s is anybody's guess.

That style aircleaner wasn't used in 20 but it could have been changed too.

Is there any place a guy could take a hard chunk of wood and a hammer to do some taping to loosen (possibly) the clutch so it would roll? Or does a guy have to take the bottom cover off and be done with it?

I wouldn't say they roll even with the clutch released. At least not very easy. If you pull the handle all the way back and crank it, does it try to pull itself? You can try to see if you can get any more adj out of the rod. The other option is to take the small plate off under the piston and see if you can pry the big gear away from the stationary side taper. If it's stuck somewhere else, it won't work although a good dose of penetrant might help.

The only way to make it roll is crank the engine over. The right side (standing behind it) freewheels all the time and the left is in gauged. I did tighten the linkage up some but didn't help. Sounds like I'll have to take the cover off.

Sounds like getting the big gear to move to the right might cure it. Until the next time.........
