Don't ya hate it when people throw good stuff away? Anyway good find! Looks like there's a Briggs flathead hiding under there, what's the year and displacement? Also, what rear end?

your transaxle looks like the one i had in my old build but mine had an hi/lo lever. it could be a foote look closely on the bottom it should be marked there if its a foote. and nice find, unfortunately i cant just pickup stuff at my recycling center...

You know how to decode the numbers on Briggs right? Look at the code. First two digits are the year, then I believe it's month then day. Then under either the model or the type, the first two numbers are the displacement. It should either be a 25 or a 28.

Just for fun, I want to take a guess at the year. I think it's an '86. Anyone else?
