Thought this was to cool not to share ...chain drive hand crank. If I didn't have 100 plus projects going I would consider this just for the cool factor.

Yep, definitely a Roper built machine, but looks like a Suburban style front end.
I see the very loose chain, but don't see a sprocket.... looks like a 1/2 done 'because I can' project.

That's not a slight, I've got a bunch of those myself.

Pictures saved for posterity.

The frame and dash look Sears. The clutch looks MagnaTrac. The crank looks dangerous because it is so long and looks like the tire will interfere. Good Luck, Rick

So, it appears to be a 1967 Fugizit
It would be a conversation starter at the shows, that's for sure.

That crank handle is for looks, late model A would get a bid out of me if closer, not going to crank an R engine through the PTO if has any compression, 6:1 on a couple i have, could it be a shifter?

I'd say you're right, Jerome. Wouldn't surprise me if the Briggs BR6 came from the same machine.

The BR6 was just a SWAG, jimmy. I couldn't remember if the gear reduction A's bolted on or not. There is also a difference in the number of head bolts between a B and an A. I couldn't remember if it was 5 vs 6 or 6 vs 7? I was having a brain fart when I looked at it last night.
