Am new to Yesterday's Tractor (and tractors generally). Bought this fully restored Series IV Model B with a Ford straight 6 over the weekend (my first non-lawn tractor) and am looking for any additional information that might be out there about this type of machine. A few specific things:

1. I have been told it is a 1958 or 1959 -- is that right? Serial # is 36076-25 (engine # 395L26CK) if that helps.

2. I have the owners manual but no shop/service/etc. manuals -- is there a source for those?

3. As far as I can tell, the only thing missing is the battery box -- have any idea where I could try to find one?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide; I'm sure I'll have more questions once I start playing around with it.

Those front wheels are of a type used on farm wagons from in the mid 40's, Mine is a 1946 but they were possibly used earlier and how much later they were used I do not know but I do not thing they were used much after about 1950 as they could not be used on a tire changer and changers were starting to get popular about that time.

1959 would be about right, maybe earlier. The General was the dump body version and the Bullet was the standard version. My dad sold them back in the day. I worked at one golf course that had both. They used surplus W.W.II Ford engines and will do about 40 MPH! Another golf course I worked at had a Bullet but it wasn't used anymore. This Bullet was special in that it was the last one built and my dad sold it new in 1959. Strangely enough my dad also sold the same golf course the last Parkmaster ever built in the early nineties. A new superintendent traded it in a year or 2 later on 2 5 gang fairway units. I don't think parts are available but Toro should be able to tell you the year. The golf course I worked at with both apparently bought the last engine kit available for them. Dave

The Toro company is alive and well, there should be a Toro Golf Course dealer around you somewhere. The lawn care/consumer dealers may not be much help.
Around here Its Tri State turf and Irrigation.

Don't give me any ideas -- it already tools around at 40 mph in 4th.
