can you get some pics of the front and back? also, check on the frame, and tranny, for a small metal plate, that will usually tell what it is, but it looks like the frame has been repainted so it might be hard to find

The motor looks like a briggs, and the frame looks like a Huffy frame.  Is that tranny H-Shift?  If so it is a Foote.  Nice mower!

Should be some numbers stamped into the shroud, the block, or maybe even carb. I don't remember where the id numbers were on flattys cause I haven't had one in a long time.

as long as that engine hasn't been changed if you can figure out how old the engine is it will give you an idea as too how old that tractor is. but if its been changed then it wont help you at all.

Ok guys and gals... I'm getting closer to figuring out what it is... I have not found the metal plate yet... But I have been looking around and I am starting to think that it is "or is around a" 1969 huffy caprice.

Most likely. Sounds pretty spot on for mini mowers. Worth around $200 to the right person if it runs and drives. Id love to have one. Them things are too cool

Yeah... your right about that... But I have no plans on selling it any time soon... But any one got any ideas of which way I should go... Should I go the go kart way? Like fearlessfront did? Or should I go off road mudding machine? Or any other ideas?

I personally don't think that is the stock motor those tractors usual come with tecumsehs but I may be wrong and just by the looks of the engine and the tractor it has ben painted and messed with wouldn't doubt the motor has ben swapped
