Picked this one up Saturday, and like so many others the owner said "it ran good when I put it up several years ago". It didn't start but did turn over freely when jumped. I could use a manual if someone has one and could post it here. Although the tractor does not show a lot of rust, It's going to need disassembly and some work. It is a heavy thing though.....anybody know how I can determine the year of manufacture?
Thanks,
Larry

Welcome to the forum Larry, glad to have you here. It looks like a good project and should be a good heavy duty tracto for you. If you can find the model number, something like 914.----- I should be able to get you a close year of manufacture. It looks to be from the later 1960's or very early 1970's. Thanks for posting the pictures! Mike

I'm thinking around a 70 or 71 model...but it's just that, a guess. Great tractors! Tecumseh HH120 engine. Hope that solid state ignition still fires.

Thanks Tractormike,
I found these numbers on a tag on the forward side of the engine, multiple google searches revealed that it is a 12 hp Tecumseh HH120 as Olcowhand noted. Is there other innate intelligence here?
Model 143-582022
Serial 837 08139
Thanks,
Larry

Tractor should have a tag on the frame that starts with 917... That can then be looked up for the most everything about the tractor.

Larry, the model number you have listed is Sears number for the Tecumseh engine. There should be anothe tag on the tractor itself that gives the tractor model number. From that we should be able to come pretty close on the date of your tractor.
