I just replaced a deck on a Craftsman with a deck off a Husqvarna. Is it luck or do they come off the same assembly line?

Yep they do. I have a 2007 Poulan and a 2005 Husqy and they are very much alike.

You could make my 2004 GT5000 a Husqvarna just by changing the hood. It even says on the model tag that it was mfg by Electrolux.

I believe it was 2010 that they either change manufacturers or major design changes. My Parents GT5000 is completely different. Frame, seat, no" tunnel", all different

Many Craftsman tractors are still made by Husqvarna, which I think is divorced from Electrolux now. In 2010 Craftsman added a lot of MTD made tractors to their brand, what I like to call the "Battlestar Galactica" line. They also have a number of Snapper/Simplicity/Briggs & Stratton made models since Briggs acquired those brands.
