I think these are the only Montgomery Ward models that did not have a shiftable transmission and were produced by Midland.

 

HoeTrac 1949 1.5hp Clinton 3spd by belt change 4.00-12 tires

HoeTrac 1951-52 2hp Clinton 700 5spd by belt change 5-12 tires

Well it's a belt driven five speed with a 2-1/2 to 3 HP engine and the seller did say he thought it was an early 50's model.    Now what do I do - rebuild it or sell it - you see my wife made the deal and it was not till I picked it up that he told me all that was wrong with it. And right now I am having trouble finding where to buy the attachments I need and money is a factor also.

 My health prevents me from doing a lot but after a few operation I finally feel I am improving. So I am thinking it may be a project.

   anyway Garry Thank you

Attachments should be easier to find than the tractors. It was not until the later years that Montgomery Ward quit stating their attachments would fit any of their tractors. Simplicity supplied just as many if not more product than Midland and both companies sold their product direct to the public.

A HoeTrac sold by MW one year may have been supplied by Midland and the next year by Simplicity. That is why the attachments had to be universal. Here is a pic of the 1952 HoeTrac from the MW catalog.

I am Confused - I put the Clinton Engine model number in the computer and what come up is that model was a Koboda engine and I don't know what year. Does any one know anything about that?

 OK - I put in the engine model number D1105 C1A  and it show that series was manufactured in 1952 and was on a Kubota Tractor.

 

Has anyone seen a Kubota walk behind 1952 vintage?

 

I still can't find a data plate on the tractor itself.

Is the D clearly visible on your engine? Havent run the no's on the engine in the pic but sure it's early 50's and should be a ringer for your engine, it is on a ward's Chore-Trac built by Simplicity, ward's supplied there own engine's, Kabota's are a foreign later made tractor

After I removed the gas tank I could see the serial number clearly and the Model also - I found a parts list that was revised in 1955 and to my dismay there was three pages of D1100 series engines but only one listing of my exact number. Now I am please to see I'm on the right track -  so I can now refer to Simplicity while looking for parts. Now to find out where I can get the parts and attachments I need. Thank you Jimmy G

   Can anybody tell me where they sell attachments to old walk behind? Everytime I look for a dealership or parts for sale online it shows the items I'm looking for but not who is selling them, no phone number or address - not even the country they are in. 

 

So if any one can help - please do

Farm auctions, craigslist, and Ebay. 

No dealer is going to have that stuff laying around and new hasn't been made for decades.

I have been on graigslist and ebay so far no luck - I just don't know why I didn't think of auctions but I will start looking at them now -

   Thank You

The last weekend of Oct there was an auction near Dixon IL that had attachments for your tractor. Maybe I can contact some collectors in your area that might be able to help.
