I’m stalking a couple of old mowers in the neighborhood. I still don’t have an answer on this one but I would like to know what it is.

MTD built, could go under a few different names such as a Sears Craftsman LT10/11, a fella here has an orange Montgomery Ward that was identical to it. Check out MTD model 134-618-599

White Outdoor was purchased by MTD in 1981. So I guess if this tractor is post 1981 that would be an MTD?

Oh my! The manual for the MTD you quoted says it has a Peerless 813b transaxle. The people where it is sitting work shift work and I couldn’t raise anyone today. I did ask and was told maybe the other day. Now I have to push this.

Chances are it has VariDrive with a peerless 910 f/r diff, there were so many variations of that tractor though so it's hard to know without an actual model number, my Warhorse is one of them. That style was made anywhere from about 1979/80 up until 86/87ish I believe. If it's anything like mine it's worth trying to get your hands on, the chassis is decent, the steering seems really rugged and the front axle is much better than the normal stamped ones you see.

When you guys say stamped, do you mean the crappy hollow ones that are on cheap MTD's?

Yes exactly, @Budget_gokarts RestoMod BO tractor had one (before he replaced it), check it out for reference.

The axle on The Warhorse is different and although also hollow is more rugged.

I know you can make strong ones if you use thicker steel but the ones on the MTD's are less than 1/8 inch steel. ( The better ones are cast iron)

I finally managed to contact the owner of the old mower today. They gave it to me. It is a Wizard/MTD, FNR transmission and gutted engine (no head or flywheel). But all the sheet metal is straight and the rust is superficial. I hauled it home and put it in the ‘new junkyard’. (I am moving all my ‘spares’ to a place that isn’t so visible from the road to make the yard look better. Gotta keep momma happy)

Nice, good score! I came across one today at the salvage yard that's just another iteration of it (and mine) and luckily was able to score the motor mount bushings from it for The Warhorse! I really wish I knew what to classify this model/style as besides just calling it a "square body", there's seems to be so many of them rebranded. Might need to start a thread on them! Lol

I’m hunting a manual for it now. I have some ideas but I need to go out and take a few pics including the data tag. (It is still on there)

Try this out, I'm pretty sure this is what yours is based on the shifter and pedal location. Mine is C459-60311 which are Canadian model numbers, mine is a year older and has a slightly different shifter setup

Did you get the engine shroud with it? The Model and Code numbers will help narrow it down

No engine shroud. Just the block basically.

I found a manual and am trying to figure out how to upload it here for reference.

Thanks for the info!
