New mounting holes in frame
Proper belt speed
Engine fit under hood (muffler, carb, air filter, etc)
The belt speed thing becomes compounded with attachments, but I think you said he just used it as a tugger, so this really should be a pretty easy swap in. Good luck and please keep us up to date.

I'd be nice to know if the problem is with the SSI for sure.
I posted a photo of it in the Gallery/Sears-Roper tractors. The photo name is Jason-ST12. Jason built the cart that he is pulling...(my brother did the welding....he did everything else.) He drove the tractor in a 4th of July parade.
Thanks for the info.

The only absolute way I know is to swap a good one on and check for spark. I have been served well over the years, however by the "eliminate the rest & if nothing else is left..." testing method. If the plug end connector is bad & I buy a $150-$250 SSI, I end up mad at myself.
It's going to be hard to find one half as good/strong at the ST12.
They are very well built machines, and once you get the spark straightened out, Jason should have many more years in it.
Please pass on to your son that he built a very nice trailer, has a very nice GT and the smile is well deserved.
BTW, I edited your post & put a link for the pic in it.
