Well, at least now we know, that you didn't save a planter box. :poke:

Nope, that's what we use the old toilets for...

I just got an answer back from Sears regarding the Tote.

We no longer have any information on the model number you provided. I do know that this tote bolts onto the front of the Suburban tractors (from the early/mid 70's). From what I can remember, the arms will go above the axle down the sides of the chassis and bolt to the frame.
I wish I had more information on this but I'm afraid we just don't have much on these older obscure items.
Thank you for using Manage My Life!


I don't think this is for a Suburban, the width is all wrong. It may still be for the Custom series, won't know till I get back in to one & take a couple of measurements.

Gibby, thank you very much. With that info, I'm pretty sure I can make a new bracket to work with the 12.

That box IS a factory attachment, used to carry around light to medium weight things like tools, hoses, mulch and dirt. Think of it as a front mounted wheel barrow.

It appears as though you are missing some hardware.

Hugh, That's a great piece!
Could you do me a favor & measure the inside to inside of the arms that come back? Want to make sure I'm working with the right width to start with.

Here is a picture for mounting reference, it appears as though you are missing some hardware.

Hugh, I forget, did you have a tote as well as James?

Update: went up to Dads and raided the cabinet. Had one good coil left, scavenged a push rod, put it all together & nothing.

No spark at all. Try this, try that, screw around, nothing.

Finally, I took the new points out and hit them with emery cloth (had used a points file earlier).

Put it in & WAAAHOOO! We have a very good looking spark. IDK if it was the points or maybe they weren't getting a good ground? At this point, it really doesn't matter, just curious.

I do need to take the flywheel off (if I can, it's really tight) and find a shim for the tapered crank bearing. Just a little slop, not to much, just enough to make me want to do something about it.

For now, I'm just happy to have a good, blue spark. :dancingbanana:
