I had 1 of those a long time ago. The motor was 5hp with 6-1 reduction gear & compression release. It also had steering clutches & would pull an 8" plow at least 4" deep. It would clear at least 12" under the frame between the wheels. It was a real b!!!! to operate. Mine had adjustable width wheels but I can't tell from the pictures if that one does.

engine looks to be either a B,K, or Z briggs. I think the ZZ had an open finned head and that one is closed.

I see it now, your right, closed head, looking thru tired eyes i missed it, im not a bolens collector so this is a new interest for me, for some unknown reasons i don't know much about bolens, kind of odd considering all the tractors i have seen, owned and touched,
