Would anyone know the model number of this Sears mower deck? I believe it is rated as a 38" deck. There is no plate (ID) on it that I can find. It is on the Sears Custom 10 XL we inhereted from the FIL.. Whe have had it several years and I now need blades and a couple of other parts for it. I need the number to find a manual / parts list for it. Thanks. Roger.

I have a 42" deck for my 12, but it's the replacement (black) one. If that info would help, I will gladly get back into it.

Had a few minutes to do a little digging.

Between scans, old manuals, online stuff, and the info at stripmine.org, I have a list of the ones I would look at on sears.com
(None of this is gospel, just extrapolating from found info on the 38" decks that were used)

Late 60's and early 70's customs used :
917.250121 and 917.250122

Mid 70's
917.250520

Mid thru late 70's
917.252010, 917.252031, & 917.252040

Look those over and see if they are what you are looking for

    Well, there is good news and bad news. When we got the tractor from my wifes parents house we had picked up a file (records) that my FIL kept on " Charlie". I found that today. In it was all the books for Charlie, his mower deck, dozer blade and garden cart, all Sears. The original sales reciept from Sears with a sales date of 12/14/1972. Original price delivered 3/4 of a mile from the store was $ 688.26 with the deck and cart. The Dozer blade was $ 89.00 delivered 3 days later.  

    Now for the bad news, no one makes mower blades for it anymore. I called the repair shop that Charlie called his doctors office and they searched and said they can't find anyone that makes the blades anymore.  They had a set that was 16 1/4" long but these are 19 1/2".

    I may have to get new blades and have some one machine the proper holes in them. I also have been thinking that I might be able to make an adaptor for it to make other types of blades fit and work. My big concern is the I get the blades so they are balanced so as not to tear the bearings out of the gear boxes. I do by sheer luck happen to have an extra mower deck tha thas two bldes that are salvageable as well as the gear boxes. Any suggeations yall have would be accepted. Thanks. Roger.
