My Grandfather had one like that when I was a kid. I don't remember much about it. That was 50+ years ago.

Yea I'm hoping to get it running maybe this weekend. but I'm not sure it has spark so that's a start. It has a 6hp motor guess its made by sears no other tags on it the tractor model # is 131.8260. I'm hoping someone can help me at least find out how old it is.

That's a neat little tractor. I hope it comes to life easily!

Yea its pretty neat it has spark it should run.. If not it would be easy to re power. it has a 6 hp what looks to me like a Tecumseh.. But not sure? just says sears but there are numbers hoping they will help.

There are exploded views of all the parts on Sears Partsdirect, but nothing that says how old it is.

Thanks that's kinda cool mine has a 6hp decal on the motor. But the good news is after getting that funny starter working. After a few tries it fired right up:bounce:it needs a little carb work but it runs pretty good as it is.

Got it running alot better today. this thing is pretty scary to drive around corners feels like your going to fall over LOL and if you dont let the pedal out slow it will bring the front tires off the ground.
