A few weeks ago I purchased a non running ss/16 with mower deck and snow plow. Today I finally spent some time and put the fuel pump back together after the previous owner took it apart. I put in a good battery and she fired after a few cranks. This is my first twin cylinder tractor and I love the way it fells when it runs. The only thing I think need attention is the starter, when it cranks its exteremly loud and sound like banging metal. Is this usual?

Glad to hear you got it running!
Lets see some pics! :D

Check and see how the teeth are on the starter and check if the starter is not loose

That Sears will make you a good garden tractor, congrats on getting her up and running! The onan engines run quite smooth and 16 horses pull pretty well.

I spent a LOT of time on one just like that when I was a kid. Dad used it for keeping a couple of acres mowed and for a large garden. I LOVED it! He gave it to one of my brothers, who sold it to someone else after he bought a JD 455. I wish he would have kept it... it had a plow, disc, and a harrow... everything was in good shape. I bet I could have talked him out of it by now! It was a fine machine and I really liked that Onan engine.

Enjoy!!

Glad you got it going, good looking tractor, good luck finding a good nose, mine has been cracked and repaired same as yours and any other one I've seen has been as well.
They are a rugged piece of machinery other than that.

That's a rugged looking machine bread320i! It looks to be in fantastic shape except for a few cosmetic issues. As far as the starter goes, I would just make sure it's engaging all the way and that the teeth are good. The metal banging could be from something contacting the engine shroud. Good luck with it!
