The latest addition to the fleet 73 ss12 with 3pt. It came with plow and cultivator and a 14hp cast briggs that needs carb rebuilt. Im not to familiar with Sears tractors did this one come with a 8hp factory? If so i want to find one if some one has an engine for it ill trade the 14hp for it. Never being much of a Sears fan this one is growing on me.

12hp Tecumseh HH120 is what I believe should have been stock on that 73. Great engines.....

Congrats on the Sears. Those are nice tractors. I'm also starting to really like those and would buy one if given a decent deal on one.

Great tractors. If it were me, I'd leave the 14 HP in there if everything fits okay. Can't tell much with the small pics.

Are you uploading from a phone? That is usually what makes them small like that.

I take them with my phone then email them to myself and save to the computer, some are decent size and some turn out small.

Nice looking SS12, very complete once you find a Teccy for it.

The HH120 was a popular engine, and you should be able to find one if you're patient. The HH100 is the same engine, just bored out a little smaller.

Worst case, you fit in the Briggs and watch for a Tecumseh on CList.

yea well I've beat them and babied them and its never happen to me...guess ya better find a new "tech"....lol. I don't care who makes it, in my opinion everything will end as a result of how its taken care of. Some things are certainly built with less quality.....but if you take care of your equipment...it will usually take care of you.......

I had a 68 Suburban 12 with an HH120 in it. They are good tractors. The tranny can handle 20HP+ if you can fit it in the tractor, so if your not a purest you have many choices on engines. I can tell you, those things can take a beating.
