IMG_1964.JPG IMG_1965.JPG IMG_1966.JPG IMG_1967.JPG This fall has been so warm in the N. E. it allowed me to restore this 1962 WH 552 it's powered by a Lauson 5 1/2HP ht55c engine that is a rare bird with no info available for it. I took a chance and put a new coil, pt. kit and carb rebuild on it, bought her a drink and she came to life and runs smooth as silk with no knocks no smoke and no errors here's a couple of pics.

Nice looking little tractor.  Kind of a unusual bird.  Don't think I would want to drive it with shorts on though with that exhaust where it is.  :thumbs:

Looks great Hank, and it's good to see something a little different. Oddball engines can have you hunting for parts for quite some time. Glad to hear it runs well!
