OK guys I sold off my Wheel horses, and panzers , and Gibson............... Looking at a 1958 economy, needs a little work  . not currently running, but I am familiar with those big ol' slow turning briggs thumpers , so that should not be a problem. It has what appear to me looks like very small front tires. Is there a model specific for that style, I have searched the web and did find some photos of other economy's with similar small front wheels?? Was this maybe a cheaper version............?

The Jim Dandy and Country Squire branded PK, both had the 8" front wheels. The ID tag on the tractor will let you know exactly what it is.

Hi engineguy63, how about posting some pictures of the tractor. As far as I can determine the front wheel size was 8" I have a 1957 sale brochure but don't have a 58 I'll attach the 57 one
