Thats a quaint looking old machine right there, not a bad score, hopefully you can get the engine issue resolved, that would make a great restore project for future tractor shows and events too :fing32:.

Thanks Jim,

This one will be quite a challenge. Not much info out there about these tractors. I spoke with Briggs yesterday, they are sending me out some docs on the engine. Not sure what the issue is, will know more once I get hold of a can of MMO.

Re: My new old 1965 Springfield Tractor

Correction... I belive this is a 1965 and not a 64.

Tag says Model 65-TE-6

65= year
E = Electric start
6= HP

Just guessing :)

I picked up the springfield and the simp 728 the same day. I have 9 garden\lawn tractors and 2 8N farm tractors. The Springfield I saw on CL listed for 150.00 When I got to pick it up, the PO realized the engine did not spin up and just gave it to me for free :)

It is my goal to get that puppy up and running. I am hoping the motor is just stuck from sitting. I will probably put a can of MMO in it and go home for the week, see if it spins the following weekend.

My collection does not look as nice as yours buddy. I also promised myself to stay off CL for a while. :praying:

Hi Matt,

I am by far no expert on these tractors.

The one I have is a 65 TE-6 as you can see in my photo the label that was on my springfield.
They were made in springfield Ohio by the Quick MFG company. I have searched and was not able to find very much about them, nevermind a manual.

They were not made very long, I am guessing 62 thru 65 or 66.

It is my belief that the label means 65 for year, E for electric start and 6 for 6 HP
That is purely my opinion. The engine on mine is in fact a 6hp Briggs engine with starter generator.

Mine has the Fiberglass fender assembly

Here is a thread

Let me know if there is anything I can help you with.

I just took a look at the tag on mine and its a Model: 62TE and Serial: 434. It's interesting because I would assume the 62 = 1962, but the tractor is definitely orange and not red. I thought the orange models were the later years? Unless the "red" was orange/red. It's like Chevy engine orange. :confused:

I had to go look again because someone had added a Deere seat to mine and wondered what was there originally. That Cub seat fits nicer than my deere, but I doubt it is correct. I won't tell anyone though.
