A friend of mine just got this 2 wheeler. I can not figure out who made it. It has a briggs WI engine, type 301123, Serial# 1084792. Neat little unit. I like the little levers on the handles Can you guys help me figure out who made it and when? Is there anything special about a briggs wi motor? It is pretty much a basket case. ( I think it has been under water) Any reason to try to repair it? As for a since of scale, or over building the chain drive is 60 pitch. Enough chain for a 1.5 hp motor? Here's some pictures.

p.s. Lauber, if you read this the plow trac cutter is going to be sandblasted tomorrow.Posted Image

Well,
Once again I can"t figure out now to move the pictures to any place that makes any since. If any one has some pointers I would appreciate them.
Enjoy the 2 weeler in the mean time.
Steve

After you click on "Reply to Thread", If you click on the "Go Advanced" button in the lower (right beside the "Post Quick Reply" button), it will take you to another page where you can see a bigger representation of the post. You can highlight and move items around and click on the "Preview Post" button to see what it will look like. You can change it as many times as you like until you're happy with it. I hope that this helps.

I would guess TORO because of the style of chain drive

It reminds me of a Little Jewell but they had two belts and one chain.

I'm startin' to think its a "Elle-if-I-know"

The frame, shape of the handles, color, and style of clutch/PTO levers would make me guess it's a Springfield. The engine & size of the tires, however, not so much.
You got me beat. Is there any kind of tag or numbers on the frame?
The engine was built in March of 1949, so if it's correct for the tractor, you could figure a build date of later in '49 or 1950

Looking around for other stuff i found this. It looks a little like yours, but the engine is bigger. Close as i can get with limited info.

Hi Folks,
Not a " little Jewell" for sure. Shape of the handle bars is wrong as well as all of the levers and drive system. I can find no markings on the frame what so ever. I will give it a look again tomorrow for anything I missed. I looked very carefully for anything on the frame and could find nothing, no marks, or any sign of decals or id plates.. Is there any point in messing with that Briggs engine? You can see the outside shape in my photos, it is also seized tight.
Thanks for your thoughts on this matter.

PS The Plow-Trac mower is now sandblasted and ready for some paint. Do not worry, I will start a seperate thread with this project. It will turn cold soon and I won't get back to it until spring, but we have been blessed with some unusually warm weather lately and any excuse to get out of the house is a great one! I have been taking photos of the project.

Steve
