One year newer than mine... Wait, do I see a hydro control lever there? If so, that's certainly worth bringing home! :D Actually, those solid-center rear wheels and original Guide lights make it worth hauling home! :D:D:D:D:D

I think if you look at the wide rear wheels that the center hub is just one big flat piece of metal with the hole in the center and the bolt holes/weight holes drilled out. It is not the dished center hub that's only welded onto the rim in 4 spots, with openings between those areas... Kinda hard to describe.... In fact, I think these wheels are maybe 1/2" or an 1" wider than those used with most Simp 10.50 rears. You can mount 26x12x12 on those wheels. Seems they only came on 3012-3212 vintage machines, and perhaps not all of them... As far as that 2nd muffler -- don't remove it until you get it running and I think you'll find that it is noticeably quieter. Not quiet, mind you, but quieter than without it. I just put a 4" slip connector in my Nelson a few weeks back -- just that much made a difference.

Probably swapped/updated at the dealer, since it should've had 8.50s instead of 10.50s... My 3112V has them also. I don't think all 3212s had them, and I've seen them on some 3012s, but I don't think they were on all of them. I think basically they're late 1968-early 1970 timeframe.

May be a later model 3212... Here's a pic of my 3112 with the wheels -- before I put hub caps on it. You may be able to see the difference here: [img]http://www.simpletractors.com/club2//attach/Kent/Nice_Tractor.jpg[/img] See how deep they are and how flat the sidewall of the 10.50s are... the wheel actually looks slightly wider than the tread of the tire.

The heigth adjusters on a RBT are further apart than on the FDT decks to clear the running bords. A RBT deck will fit on a FDT but the FDT deck adjusters will not clear the running boards on a RBT. I believe this is mostly on 42" decks I have not seen any narrow adjuster setups on a 48" deck. FDT = Foot Dragging Tractor. RBT = Running Board Tractor.
