Model L Two Wheel Tractor

Recommended Posts


I have been working on a Model L two wheel tractor (1949) I picked up at auction. I got the 1 1/2 hp Clinton engine running by just changing the points. The tractor moves forward but I do not think I have the right pulley for the transmission. The one that is on there is 11" and using a 48" belt it only goes into the first notch on the trans. I do not not have a manual for tractor but have found two belt references. One says 43" and the other 40". Which is correct? If these are the right belt sizes I think the pulley should be 5" or 7"?

Thanks for helping.

Nathan; I have a manual for the model LA tractor in PDF format that I could email to you. I believe the only difference is that the LA used a 2HP Briggs. If you are interested PM me your email address. Also; welcome to the club...Dave

Hello Dave,

Thanks for the manual. It had some good information in there but I think the pulley I am looking for is a different part#. In the manual you sent me there was hand written the newer part#s. Is there a reference somewhere to get these? It make make my search a little easier. I took the tractor out yesterday and ran it a bit with the drive pulley and belt I have. It plowed pretty good I can just imagine what a good job it would do if I had the right parts.

Thanks again.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
