Hey everyone , new kid on the block,, I found this ole Roper tucked away in the corner of a barn ,, had to have it ,, it's in very good shape mechanically ,, just needs some new paint ,, all the stickers and decals are in very nice shape , it obviously has very few hours on it ,, the B&S 16hp runs like a new one ,, I looked in the downloads for a manual ,but couldn't find a listing ,, the model # T62241R3 the deck model # TT2131RO , its a 42'' cut, i'm not sure of the model year ,, I think its a 1973...? If anyone has any info , I would really appreciate the help.. Thank you ..

Thanks ,, these pics are from late march of this year,, she needed 2 new frt tires ,, a battery,, a new fuel pump , both drive belts replaced, she had sat in the barn since 82'...! I cleaned the carb, and changed the oil, greased everything & sharpened the blades. She's a workhorse ,, been mowing my 3 acres once a week since april without a hitch. Hopefully I can locate a service manual, just incase I have a problem down the road and need to know spec's,,, This winter she gets a new paint job just to make her purrrty... LOL

Thats a Roper RT-16. The best way to tell the year is by the engine code numbers.

I found a parts manual for a RT-16. Little different model #, but I hope it helps.

That is how it begins. Next thing you know your whole yard is covered in tractor parts and your bank account statements are full of charges to the parts house. You will have trash cans full of empty spray paint cans and a big electrolysis tank next to your shop. You will develop muscles you never knew existed from sanding. Soon you will have to have attachments you will never use just because they go to the tractor. Your free time becomes tractor time. But on the plus side you wife will always know where to find you- out in teh shop tinkering with something that probably already worked fine or down at the local mower shop swapping stories.


Welcome to the great obsession of Garden Tractors. We the few, the proud, the slightly demented from every walk of life with a little gasoline in our veins are glad to have you.

Ha,, ain't that the truth...LOL we have a few addictions already,,, one more won't hurt, right..? , we are hopelessly addicted to dirt track racing ,,, living 24/7 in the shop is the norm,, building 600cc minisprint race engines. www.600rrracing.com . then we have the streetrod side of it ... building chassis's and custom fab work... I can see where the GT obsession would be bad ,, kinda like playing with VW's back in the day ,, parts and cars just grew in the backyard overnite....LOL Therapy didn't help back either... :mecry:
