Awesome! I'm really curious to see how it works... Btw congrats, I just picked up my first Sears, a suburban 12, and so far I love it. I think you'll like yours.

Thanks for the heads up on the engine and what not. I didn't realize that, but thought it was a little odd. If I need parts for the engine are they the same as the original one or do I need to find the model of the motor.

 

I paid $700 for it all (would have been less, but another buyer jacked up the price last minute). I forgot to mention it had tire chains, weights and some scoop thing that doesn't seem useful. Maybe if you want to back into a pile of dirt or something.

 

I meant cultivator not harvester. But thanks for letting me know the value of the parts. I was hoping that would make it more worth it (and more useful to me) over the SS/10 I was considering. 

 

I would say you got a pretty good deal. I have wanted a Sears back blade for a while, can't find one under 150 around here, plus that electric 3 pt, that is minimum 250-300, plus all the rest.... :thumbs:

Definitely worth more than the ST/10, heavier built tractor.

 

The motor should have a 143.xxxxx # on it. It is the same as the stocker parts wise, it was just a Tecumseh replacement motor. I get most of my parts through partstree.com.

Being unsure what it would go in, Tecumseh added both electric starter, pull starter and the regulator in flywheel tin so they could have 1 motor to be used in whatever make/model. I've had to replace quite a bit on mine, but I don't think it was taken care of and I "ride it hard and put it away wet". Still a good tractor.

 

I'm curious about the scoop you mentioned, Sears did make a small scoop, more of just a dumping wheelbarrow.

 

Walkin',  here's thread with pics of the stocker electric 3pt

Very nice package deal. I think what the scoop thing is, is a "Tote"

About that time, sears had one that could be used on the back and also on the front of the tractor. It is not a loader, but a bolt on wheelbarrow that you can dump from the seat.

Can't wait for the pics, sounds like a great deal on some very useful equipment.

Damn, still got a great deal!!! That scoop thing you mantioned makes me woder if that may be a box blade/scarifer. Quite nice for leveling paths, land, etc. and they are not cheap.  :thumbs:

No, it's a  "tote box" that Sears offered, not many out there. Most were just front mount, but a few could be used on the front and mounted to the rear 3 pt and dumped. Kind of like a small dump trailer without wheels mounted to tractor.

Sears never actually had a box blade/ scarifier on 60's/70's other than the Gannon Earthcavator that was made to fit Sears smaller 3pt.
