I don't know what this engine was used on but it had all of the electrical components attached to it.
I removed them so the engine looks nicer.
The round gas tank will be mounted on the front of the engine over the starter/generator.

Here's all the parts that were removed from the engine.

When this was a walk behind garden tractor, it needed a long gear shift lever so the operator could shift it.
As a riding tractor, it doesn't need the lever that long so I shortened it some.

Posted Image


The end of the lever is threaded. ...

Posted Image


And a gear shift knob is attached to it.

Posted Image



The rear frame rails stick out a ways past the wheels.

Posted Image


These were shortened some also.

This tractor is plenty heavy enough up front with that big Wisconsin engine mounted on it.
The rear of the tractor is rather light though.
So I'm going to use this counter weight that use to be mounted on the front and remount it over the rear axle.
It weighs 130 pounds.

Posted Image


I fastened two pieces of angle iron across the frame rails.
One piece is in front of the axle and the other is behind the axle.

Posted Image


The weight sits in-between the frame rails on these two pieces of angle iron and is bolted to the angle iron to hold it in place.
There is about 1/8 inch clearance between the top of the weight and the round rod that holds the brakes.
There is 1/4 inch clearance between the bottom of the weight and the axle.

So your seat will mount on that base just above the transmission? That weight looks like it would weigh more than it does! And putting the fuel tank toward the front will balance the looks of the engine.

What's on the output side of the engine that will go back to the axle? A long belt?
Very interesting.

Yes .. it will have a long 5/8 belt to drive the transmission.

That weight looks like it would weigh more than it does!

The weight is a solid piece of cast iron that is 28x6x3.
I have no idea what it was originally used for.

Ray, between these updates, you have to be standing there scratch your head. When you do post an update, everything is spelled out and documented. You have to think about all this sometime.
Great update, keep them coming.

Peter

It will be the factory gray that a lot of the older engines were painted.

I'm thinking I might switch the starter/generator so it sets up closer to the engine ....

I think the starter/generator looks better in this last position,closer to the engine.

I think you are right, pulling the starter/generator up and in looks good, it should tuck in under the gas tank as you said you were putting that to the front side of the engine if I'm remembering..... lookin' good!!

I don't know how big the fuel tank is, but I think your original placement of the S/G will allow the tank to sit a little lower. Of course, if it's gravity fed, higher is better.
