I'm looking for the paint codes for a Sears Suburban model 917.25150 Serial Number 0457B01681. I found this one in edge of a field and brought it home. Any help is greatly appreciated. Also would like to know the year it was made. Thanks

Thanks for the welcome. I also have an old Bolens that I will be tackling when I finish with the Suburban. I also have done 4 larger tractors like the to30 Ferguson and Super A Farmall. I've found these forums a wealth of information when working on these old machines.

Thanks mjodrey, I'm hoping to save another one from the scrap yard. I hate to see these old war horses rust away or get cut up. Maybe I can help someone else when the time comes.

Thanks gtractor. When I started I didn't realize there were so many like myself who likes the old stuff better. I forgot to take any before pics but I'll have some after ones.
Looks like this is a great site with lots of information. I can use all I can get. LOL

Haven't found it yet. I think is suppose to be blue and white. Maybe someone will chime in and back me up on that. The numbers fall between a 67 super 12 and a 68 suburban 12. I already painted it yellow and white so its back to the paint booth. I may post a few pics of the larger tractors while I try to get this one running again.

Beardog,

I noticed your model # wasn't listed on the site I directed you to. Could you have a # wrong? ~~ Just askin' ~~ Also, there were four [I think] different colors of those Suburban tractors. So you could pick the one you like the best and it would still be politically correct. My '68 Super 12 was an aqua color but I found a blue that really looked good so its now blue and white.

I couldn't find that number either. I'll go recheck my numbers later today. It has a 12 horse tecumseh
engine in it. The engine number is 143.672022. I found this number to be a good number. I'll get back
with you later today.

I'm almost sure I have the right model number. I've also found a picture of the tractor but it's black and
white. 1977_tractors It's about half way down this page
and shows the model 917.25150. Looks like the straw yellow is right and I'm thinking that's the same as a
F40 Ferguson. Least I'm in the ballpark. LOL Thanks for all the help. I'll be posting some pics when
I get some of it put back together.
