Hi,
I have a friend that has an old Montgomery Wards garden tractor. The number on the Briggs and Stratton engine is 326434 0134-01 7303021. I am trying to find parts for the engine but I cannot seem to find these numbers anywhere in any of the small engine parts lookups!? We're trying to get this little tractor running and it's in actually pretty good shape...the front of the engine even has a PTO (God only knows how you get the front shroud off this thing!) Anyone out there have a clue about these old Montgomery Wards tractors? Thanks.

The engine sounds like a 16 HP cast iron, L-head engine. Go to the Briggs site and type your number in.
I checked, and you have something missing or wrong on the engine numbers. The 320000 series is the 16 HP, I have one sitting in the shop right now waiting for a rebuild, or, waiting for me to go back to work to get the money to rebuild, rather.
You might try here http://www.simpletractors.com/Main/wards_for_1962.htm for more information on your tractor.
or, try www.jackssmallengines.com for parts
Good luck

I also would like info on this tractor. I have a MW 16 variable. Everything works great and I actually put larger knobby tires on the front for better traction.
My only problem is the steering linkage connecting the left wheel under the motor, stripped out. Should I fix it right or just weld it?

I thought I had a pic but I'll have to post it later.

I have 2 of these. 1 is threaded & 1 is pinned w/ bushings on tie-rods to spindle. Don't weld it. Tie tods are only $8 @ Supply house, drill spindle out 5/8", use a bronze bushing 5/8"OD - 1/2"ID, new tie-rod has 1/2" stud w/nylon locknut.
