Congrats Kenny. A couple of solid craftsman tractors to add to your growing collection. It looks like you'll have plenty to keep you busy this winter.

Kenny I see you got your limit again! Congrats.

 

I do know that in 1986 the 20 horse was a Onan. But as others have said Sears used them all.

Its not a intek, it may be a opposed B&S twin just like the 14, 16,18 engines, the 20 hp Briggs opposed twin is very rare, not saying thaats what is in this, but I think it originally came with a Briggs, not a kohler, i could be wrong, but if you get the 917 number from the tractor we can tell. I dont think all the Briggs twins had filters, maybe none, is so that engine would be a kohler, mabe an Onan (not likely) but if its a kohler 20, it could be a repower.

It is not a repower. All the tin work fits real well including that up over the muffler. The oil filter is in the same location as an Onan. I just may have to wait until I get it home. By the way, the model # is 917.254421, serial is 0778S03126.

Stocking up on the Sears GTs. Congrats!

I believe the 20 hp engine is an Onan P220-G.

You guys beat me too it.The factory 20hp in those tractors was an Onan and the Onan powered tractors mostly if not all seem to have the electric lift.The middle tractor looks to me to be a Motomower.That era of Craftsman GT's were availible with a 18hp Briggs,18hp Kohler Magum or the 20hp Onan.They were horizontal shaft engines. 92 or 93 was the last year for the horizontal engines in them and if you look very closely at the grills you can see a slight difference in the grill area of the vertical shaft engine tractors that took over in the early mid 90's.

Thanks for the info on the middle tractor, I hope to put it in a thread.

The moto-mower might be a mix of parts.  Hard to tell, but if the steering wheel is original, I think it's a model 6025.
