Nice :wh: score there.     :text-bravo:

and keep the rest of it's patina as is.  :handgestures-thumbsup:

I'm  not going to bash a tecky or Onan either one now.  We've got two Techumseh's that run like a top and I just got my Onan twin going on my D160 with little effort.  I'm digging Kohlers, Techumsehs, and Onans all right now.  That's a great looking machine.  Agree with Craig on the wheels and seat.

Personally I'd leave the wheels and seat.

The Wheel Horse model 603 was a economy based unit built with out the rear fenders, under seat tool box, cover for the parking brake and was not electric start. The engine was a 6 hp Tecumseh that used the aluminum block (H-60). But the real unique features of the 603 model was the half moon steering wheel and the plastic throttle and choke lever knobs which were only found on the 1963 model 603. Because the 603 was a cheaper model and so exclusive it has because one of the most coveted collector models. Notice though the full round hood as it was first introduced on the 603 as apposed to the other round hoods that had a cut away in the back for the fuel tank. This hood was then used till 1968 in the Lawn Ranger series but also used on the 654.

LUCKY FIND !
