Great looking Super. Love the lines on them.

You might go back and see if he has the snowblower still (unless there was something else he had to remove the grill piece for) and it looks like there might have been something bolted to the back... 3 point? 50# OEM weight? Who knows.

Random guess without the numbers? 71-72 ish (I'm not great at that... Others here will nail it in a few seconds).

The deck bearings are replaceable as are the mule drive bearings, but if he kept the deck greased, they last a LONG time and the mule drive, I have one that needs replaced out of several.

Oh, and one more thing... If you ever change the switch on it, do your research first, not after.

The deck look's pretty solid with no rust holes, dents or damage. The sheet metal is straight but it is missing the cigarette lighter, thank's on the guess on the year, I was guessing 68 -72 ish myself

Missed the rocker box cover in the pics. :wallbanging: Wondered about (and got distracted by) the air cleaner.

The 72 guess was because they started using the bendix around then, thanks Rustyoldjunk... See, I told you these guys would nail it.

The OH140/OH160 is a really good engine, but do some research on the valves and the issues they may develop.

BTW, I moved this into the Sears forum for you.

Edit: i just noticed, the dash is the wrong one for the early Supers, but the hood is right? Might be a late 68/ early 69... Depends on the model number.

Johnny Cash did good with a multi-year cadillac, and you did great with that tractor find!  Next time you go for a ride, I want to go too.
