Yes, I have quite a few old Wheel Horses, one of them just like yours, a Lawn Ranger. Well, not quite like yours. That's a beauty! Mine's still in it's work clothes. I also have a 604 with a 6hp Tecumseh, so I'm familiar with them. The thing I found was wrong with most of them was the tiny little holes in the carburetor jets were plugged up. Clean that out and you were good to go. As for a bad flywheel, that' a new on me too. Tecumsehs were known for sheared flywheel keys that were just enough off to make it not run.
Jeffcat, and John, Tractordata is the first place I look to find out anything about mowers. What a great resource! I believe the Chief 6 is the right one, but I'm wondering if the years are right. I looked under Chief 100 because my tag says 100F so I looked there. Wrong one.
And you are right about being excited about what else they might find. Have you ever seen what that slide plate might be for. I'm hoping it's for a tiller and maybe it's hiding somewhere. I'm not familiar with these at all so my research is going be fun!
Clint, I'm thinking you are correct in saying its a 1961. Does anyone have a serial number breakdown on these? It's surely has to be one of the first ones made. Wouldn't they have made these with the pan seat first before the padded seat square one like all the rest?
Thanks to all for the info. I'll keep you posted if I come up with anything else. I had to leave it outside because there's another project in my garage, and it's been -7 outside with a nasty wind off and on that goes right through you.
