That's a Sears Gt 19.9 made in 1978 and 1979. Has a 52 cubic inch Onan engine, the largest put in a Sears up to that point, also known as the "big block Onan". They are absolute beasts, where are you located? I wouldn't mind having another one!
Here's mine.

Edit: I'll have to look on mine, I forget if the model number plate is on the back by the tail light or by the shifter.


Gibby I have the same type "Seat Cover" on my old sears.Don't they work great? :poke: :rolling:

OK I got the shop expanded out and my 1972 chevy truck restored. I listed it forsale yesterday and it sold in less than 20 minutes. that was awsome. anyway I pulled the sears into the shop today to check it out. I put a charger on it and hit the key and the starter began to turn. but not the motor. so I pulled off the shroud on the engine to check the starter and noticed the bendix is not moving out to engage the flywheel. so I guess im looking for another starter. ill post more when I get a functioning starter to see if the engine runs. thanks

Welcome. Its great to have new folks from mid-America. However, since you're from Grand Lake, we're going to expect some great FISHING STORIES---- :bigrofl:

I just rebuilt the starter on my Onan, made a world of difference. A bendix shouldn't be too hard to find for yours.

Now THATS a fish story I didn't expect. Certainly, there are lots more interesting activities. I've been there a couple of times in years past and its a nice area. :thumbs:
