Champion 11hp Lawn Tractor

(it's the red one in the picture)
All i know from the tag under the seat is that I can get replacement parts at Sears Robuck (spelling?), I am guessing it was sold at sears but I am looking for what year range it is and what other mowers share the same mowing deck.
The deck on the mower could be repaired but it has been fiberglassed on the sides and I'd rather just replace it

they were all made by murray and are normally refered to as the cube tractor. They were made from 86- early 90s I believe. Multiple companies rebadged them,
I will have to respectfully disagree with you on this point. I believe you will find the bulk of the "square" Craftsman tractors, silver green or otherwise were 917 units, manufactured by AYP/Roper/Electrolux or whatever merger phase they happened to be in. The only 502 tractors I have ever seen in this body style built my Murray has their distinctive stamped steel front axle and the "bumpout" and the sloping floor pan as shown in the photos below . I have done some fairly extensive research over the past 4 years or so on Murray OPE as they are a passion of mine and the units below are the only square 502 units I have ever seen. If you have any evidence that Murray built any other square nose units [ipl's, manuals, catalogs etc.] I'd be thrilled to see it. I love unearthing any and all Murray info. I do have a photo of a silver version of the tractor below "somewhere", but cannot find it at the moment.
In case you have not seen it, I replied to your other thread about the bar on the rear of your tractor, she's a beauty by the way. That bar is for a 3 point hitch.

917 is a murray cross number.
That's incorrect. 917 is the Sears source code for Roper/AYP/Husqvarna. Maybe that's the cause of the confusion.
502. is the Sears source code for Murray Ohio.
