The ad was titled "1970 Sears suburban with 11 attachments" or something along those lines, not sure if it's the same one you're thinking of or not as I think it was only posted Thursday night.
Yep that's it! Glad to see it was in as good a shape as it was listed,again congrats on making quite a haul,looks like you should have the equipment to handle most any situation.

That was quite the load. Not often you see so many attachments together. Have fun trying them all out.

I do have a couple of questions that hopefully the Sears guys can answer...
1: Is the engine a Tecumseh as I've been led to believe? It looks eerily similar to the K301 in my Ford 120 but all of the tags on it say "craftsman"?
2: Any idea what this bar may have been added on to the 3pt for?

As for the bracket. Is it possible it's a flag holder? Looks like its straight up and down when the lift is up?

Yes, HH120 tec motor.
Not sure about the extra holder on 3 pt.
I see in one pic you also got a Troybilt furrow attachment.

That holder is basically straight up and down when the 3pt is raised, would a flag in there be decorative or serve some purpose? (I'm fairly ignorant about anything beyond just the basics as far as plowing fields)
The red furrow attachment was in with a pile of parts for the tractor and the guy told me to just take it as he had no use for it...

Tecumseh's like to eat the SSI modules after many years, but don't fret there are alternatives out there to fix. If it ever does goes out and you lose spark, don't get sucked into thinking you have to buy an over priced 40 yr old electrical used part.
The flatheads are pretty durable motors, especially if PO took care of it.

If you need me too, I can measure my Troybilt furrower, they made two sizes, one for a Pony, the other for Horse model.
If you are creative, you can make a mount to fit the Sears 3pt and use it on the tractor.

Do they go with the furrow attachment or is it just a happy coincidence that the bolt holes/slots line up perfectly?
As long as I'm asking about things that puzzle me, how about this?
Any ideas on that one? Lol

just by the pics, that looks to be a Horse model furrow, but I will try to measure.
The single plow furrow was used to make your row so you can plant whatever. You could set depth of tiller to determine how deep you wanted the furrow to be. If you measured properly and kept rows far enough apart, once you planted, you mount the "wings" and then go back in between the rows cover up the furrows and "hilling" your rows. It was actuay properly named "hiller/furrower".
My dads actually came with a long bar that mounted on side somehow and you could mark the width of your rows for the next time around. He never used it and it disappears, I think we made something else out of it.
no ideas on your other attachment.

I've seen those tines before somewhere, but can't picture it exactly. I think they are heads for some type of rotary cultivator, like a tiller, but just for cultivating, not tilling.
