Nearly all Wards and Simplicity attachments are usable. Just realize that the yokes for the rear attachments aren't deep enough to use on some of the earlier ones, however don't pass up one like that, because you can make the correct one.

Great find. What model does it say it is, on the tag. I'm guessing Clipper, based on the aluminum transmission case, but that is a gray area for now, until I can find more information. If so, the reverse was optional. I've done a little research, and I believe the two larger models, Town and Country, and the Super, both have cast iron gear cases. Also, from what I've found, it appears to be 53-55, based on the adjustable linkage style.

 

I have a Midland built MW two wheeler, that my Dad bought for me to use, in 1968. My older brother had went away to school ( a priest friend of the family thought he might become one, and paid for the tuition) and it was my job to take care of the 2 acre garden. Over the years, all of the attachments disappeared, with the exception of a homemade brush mower, and the tractor was left to die. Some farmer friends even removed the engine for use elsewhere.

Anyway, I have it now, and plenty of attachments. It lives on my small farm, and I use it to clear the driveway in the winter.

I love the two wheelers.

 

Nice.

This is a Dandy Boy Clipper - do you know if they are supposed to have a recoil pull rope?

I've never seen one with a recoil. Even the later models with a shifting transmission were rope start, not recoil.

That is what I thought - so I'll need to convert it back to rope pull

I Guess I'll need to find a cover for the engine - the guy I bought it off of, thought it was a Clinton but I can't find anything to confirm it. I need to get rid of that recoil and put a straight pull rope on. It's strange I haven't found the parts I need online. I think I will start looking for antique tractor shows, maybe I can find them there. What do you think?
