Headed out Sat am with a good friend to get/look at/pay for the Craigs List Suburban with loader. 2 hr drive no equipment problems, found the place as the tractor was getting hosed off, the fellow had used it right up until we got there trying to finish his stone wall. Looked good, runs OK, doesn't charge the battery and has a home done wiring system but loader functions great and has new rubber. So paid and loaded and brought it home. Let the tinkering begin...... Dan hope you are ready for Onan questions.....
here are a couple shots.... first one is loaded up and second is home and in the yard.

Yep, I think you did great! Bucket isn't even banged up. Looks like maybe a home built loader...or redone a lot to fit this GT? Either way, it looks well built! Heading out for Chinese....be back later this evening.
Congrats peter!
Remember....action video!

Loader has part of a Work Horse decal still on it and yes it was adapted to this tractor some where along the line, but done well and is rugged.
I put it to the test by digging into the bank behind the house, it works, but needs weight!!! Have a stack of brake drums/rotors etc all picked out of my friend/pastor's
scrap pile we, just need to fab up a mount to the plate already on the back of the tractor. Will be looking for parts and pieces, front grill needs help and it could use a
muffler, the one on it is getting tired but still holding together. The wife got on and tried it out too, she gave it the CFO's seal of approval. Guess I did OK.

Peter, I just happen to have a muffler for that tractor! In great condition too, so had to have been a replacement. Came off a SS16 with Onan. So don't sweat the muffler. After I get back from my dairy meeting, we'll get together on it. I'll get you a pic. The grill parts are HARD to find in decent shape. I don't have any chassis parts, just a few engine parts.

Thanks Dan!!!! The grill has been broken and repaired, I just need to do the finish sanding and re paint, I'd also like to replace the missing grill insert
below the headlights with a close to matching mesh. The lower corner that is removeable for belt clearance I did get with the tractor and installed
it yesterday. There is plenty to do to keep me busy.

Feast your eyes peter...great muffler! Slight thinning on ends of tubes where they slide onto head pipes, but the rest is as thick as when new.
