I know Sears still uses the 917 prefix. I have a Sears Craftsman laws sweeper that has the 917 number.

That's the lator 917 no., the original pre-1960's were for David Bradley only, they just re-used the no after a while.

I have a 1960 mod # 917 60613 and you told me what year it was. I bought another one and havn't figured out wheather it is a 64 or 65. I didn't get a hood with it. has small side cover so I guess its a 600. Blue frame so its not a 63. I need a Idler sheave & Brg. for the reverser. I would rob one off a walk behind but I only have one that has a reverse. the # of the last one is 91760687 thanks jpcubs

Your post is confusing......a blue frame would be found on a 63, parts from a walk-behind wil not fit the rider, and that number isnt any DB item.

Jeff my bad the # is 91760637 I took a pic of it and blew up an I seen the three. so the 63 was also blue! I have pics of the tractor but I don't know how to put them on here if you could pm me your email I will try to send them to you. Did the 63 have a rounded hood or the squared off hood? The guy I got it from said it had square hood an had a TEC eng. and he put Briggs on it. Who nose about PO's. He said he through the hood away.

  • ok now we are getting some place.. the 637 would be a 64, and yes blue and white, its also the 600 model for that yr and used the hood without the side screens. That hood is hard to come by so its disapointing that you didnt get it. It probally had a hh60 tec engine orginally. I belive it should also have a sq front axil instead of the pipe one from before, Also used a sleeved rim on the front instead of a bearing or hub. Seems like they alos went with tie rod ends instead of the flat bar stock in the steering linkage. Its pretty much a no frills plain jane tractor, and would have been the one listed as good, in the good,better,best catalog ad's.

Jeff I put pics on your site of the 64. It has round tie rods and square axle. It don't have brakes on it. probly another way to save money. I got plow and 3 point with it. the 3 point has a bar across the center. looks org. I looked at my 2 wheel and it has the same piece on it as my 1960 has. It is the idler pulley that rides on the back of belt to tighten it. I was told the number is 575pa814 not sure he is rite. Thanks again johnny
