the starter button looks to be orginal.
It has brakes which were optional on that tractor, but factory on the 59.
5.75 is the hp of the briggs engine.
the number on the weight is its casting number, tell the factory what mold to use.
On the hoods, 1961 had 4 models 616,617, 618 and 619. 616 617 used the same hood, 618 used one that doesnt have a DB emblam cast into it and has the more sq opening, 619 the only wissy engined tractor used a hood like the 616 and 617. The last oval hood is the 622, which uses the non emblamed one. 622 is also the first tractor for 62 and the new paint colors. All tractors after 622 used a sq hood. Some where 725's with a grill in the sides and some were 600's which used the 5.75 engine and a hood without the grills.
Your hitch is hard to find as about the end of 60 they started to weld the lower 3pt bracket to the hitch out of the factory, becasue poeple were putting it on backwards
There are some other small things differnt like postions of bolt hole, and other small parts, but over all the tractors and their running parts are the same from 59 thur 61, which total 8 models.

So Jeff, are you saying that the wheel weights are original DB's ? I would of expected some sort of name stamped in on such a important item. That's Great if they are, I'm just very surprised there's No Name.
