:WRS:           Always like to hear of a :wh: that has been passed down through the generations in a family. If you post a "Wanted: ad in the classified section on here you might be able to find a K-90 or B-1290. As for the engine you have I am not sure what it is, but it wasn't unusual for replacement engines to be placed in service to keep the horse running.   :text-coolphotos:         Glad to see you will be showing it a little love.    :handgestures-thumbupright:

@Zac :text-welcomeconfetti: to :rs:

Glad to hear a story of a tractor that has been handed down in the family!

I am not well versed on the early Wheel Horse tractors, so I am of no help!

Good luck (and send photos) of your restoration!

Probably a replacement engine. Always good to see a tractor stay in the family, it just makes it that much more special! Post a wanted ad as said before and someone here will be able to hook you up with a k90 or k91 (pretty much the same thing). Keep us updated on your progress!!

Well ya definitely  got a nice rj there! Again its awesome to see it stay in the family. The motor pictured I'm not sure of exactly. But it almost looks like a tecumseh.  Regardless I would definitely place a add in the wanted section of the classifieds for everything you need. And don't be afraid to ask questions, we all do.

That is a very nice little Rj you have there, seems to be complete other than the engine and also in good shape, the engine is defiantly a tecumseh but I am not sure of the model. Good luck with the resto and make sure to keep us posted with the progress.

Thanks for looking, I have been working on the tractor, I have gotten most of it torn down, got new tires and hope to have it sand blasted soon, 

I do have another question, I found a serial or model number on the transmission next to the gear shifter, if it is a serial number can it give me some sort of clue what model year the tractor is?

The numbers on the tag looks like D24-9, Thanks for looking again!

Year of manufacture is April 24, 1959. Since the letter "D" is the fourth letter of the alphabet, this "D" represents the 4th month of the year (April). The "24" represents the day of that month, and the "9" means the year such as 1959.

      I saw this wheel horse for sale and I am trying to figure out if it is a suburban or Rj,parts on it look like a suburban and other parts look like an Rj 58 or 59, what are your opinions i would really like to know? I know the front axle is from a suburban but not sure about other parts.

      I just finished up an HD-42 plow with the RJ mount. Just need the decal/decals for it now. I think I've seen a few with a decal on the upper left on the back side of the blade but I don't recall the type of decal. Does anyone know exactly what the original decal/decals are and their placement on the plow or mounts?

      Hi, I recently bought a Clinton engine for my RJ 58 but it has no spark. We have removed the flywheel, what shall we do next. Thanks
