Been researching, so far I have found it is a 1972. Only thing I haven't found is the blades for the 38" deck. Deck# 917.252010, blade number 2464R

I had an 8xl which was that tractor with a hh80 in it . I believe I still have the original owners manuals . I will find them and mail them to you if you want. Or I can bring them to you in June when I head down there. Check Foley Belsaw website. They sell the blades and the special washers for the blades.

I have the manual already but thanks for the offer! I did try Foley Belsaw already but It looks like they stopped carrying them.

What are you coming down in June for, a little Salt water fishing?

Congrats on the nice solid Sears Chris. I'd like to find one of those myself but don't see many for sale lately.

My wife and I go to the beach and breechway in Charlestown quite often. We go to Point Judith around Fathers Day because that's where my father in-law is buried.

You better be hiding from the police. Even with issues, that's a killer buy. The customs had their own front attachments and even decks, all that stuff is worth a ton and hard to find, you got a tractor free.

I noticed something different that I have not seen before. The Dozer blade and the snow blower are quick attach, they share the bracket and lift assembly. You just remove 2 pins (rods) pull one attachment off and slide the next on on.

I even had the cab for snowblowing with mine. All I have left is the engine. I parted it out. Sold the rear, wheel weights, deck and so on. I miss it now. I bought mine for $200 from my uncle. He threw a Wheel Horse 857 to sweeten the deal. Still have that.

I bet the cab is a rare find now! My dad can't wait for me to get it running lol. It rained all day so today was out.(no garage at his place)

Thanks to bhts (a site sponsor) I just ordered a set of blades for my deck.

 

I was finding nothing available for these decks. He didn't have any blades but gave me a link to AYP and they have them!

 

So Thanks again Bob (bhts) :thumbs: :dancingbanana: http://www.rcpw.com/...uine/2464R.html
