I'm not too familiar with Craftsman GT's or for that matter any GT's so I can't say myself that I have seen just GT on one before. But this will be a fun toy for a while. I removed the blown Kohler 22 hp and put in a Briggs 20hp opposed twin that I had in stock. I'm kind of leaning towards a set of custom stacks until I get the Kohler back together.

I agree that it looks like someone may have gotten creative with the stickers at some point. I've always seen a number after the "GT" also.
Hmmm.
Is it possible that the hood has been changed? I can't seem to find a picture of one just like it. Normally there's at least one pic out there somewhere.

I suppose anything is possible , I was told by the previous owner he bought it new. But I never asked if he changed anything. I should have it moving under its own power again tomorrow.

After a little more searching, I was able to find a couple of pics of your style hood. They referred to it as a GT __ where the __ was the engine size. One case 25, another 24.

So, is yours a GT 22.5 or a GT 20? ;)

I saw your posts on red that is one nice looking rebuild. What did you use for paint ?

I'm sure I'll come up with a name for it, everything else seems to get one ! My truck is the redneck limo and the truck I drive at work is the Beast .


I used a local store brand "Freds" enamel at $1.25 a can. I even gave the store a good comment on their paint.

Thank you Mike, that's the kind of picture I was looking for. Confirms the hood is right and no one played with the decals.

The only other place I saw info on this series, they were differentiating the different models by the engine size. It seems they made at least 3 models a 22 and a 24 Kohler and one mention of a Briggs 25.

Have you found out anything about yours beyond that?
