_popupControl(); you are correct there young mowersman that is indeed a wisconsin engine, apparently both trustys had them which would date this picture to between 1942-43 a full 10 years before the doe triple d !!!! this would of also been one of the first fwd tractors too albeit a very basic model !!!! _popupControl();

I have seen this wheelhorse conversion before at Lingfield Steam fair. An interesting machine.
Might see it there again this year.
