Here is a possible engine for your Brillion. It runs well and does not smoke. Send a private message to discuss further.

Here's a few pics of how the drive and linkage is setup on mine and the seat spring.  The spring is 3" wide about 6" tall and about 7" from front to back.                           Stewart

It is the same company that made farm equipment. So, Hankg, this would have to be a '61 or ' 62. The '63 had the heavier cast iron grill. Garden All of Indianapolis, Tractors Inc, was in production in '59 and '60. Your machine has the early Brillion aluminum grill, the same as the late Indianapolis built "Pup".

You will find an article on the Brillion tractor in the Sept 2008 issue of LAGT.

Couldn't wait to open the thread and see what you had in store for us, Hank. Wasn't disappointed. Can't say as I've seen one before, but she's a looker, for sure. Great bones. Looking forward to you working your magic, Hank :thumbs:

Also, kudos to you, Jason.......say, you wouldn't know where I could find a Ford Model AA u joint, would you, lol? :wave:
