Yea, ME!!! :wave:  :D

 

This old tractor got a new lease on life, I was "this" close to pulling motor out to repower my Allis and then scrap the rest. Just happen to be talking to Jeff on a car forum and we struck up a deal. It's a rough old bugger, but hopefully he can bring her back to her former glory.

the suburban 15 and ss15 was built in 1972 and in 1971 they had ss14 and suburban 12 but the same grill style.

MH the 14 ,15 ,and 16HP was the 32 CI engine just rated different. Nice tractor Jeff and it looks like you have the big harder to find 48 inch deck with it.

Yea, it was ready to be transplanted too if I would've had taken the time to see if it would run, Jeff came along and away she went.

 

I didn't have the deck with it, he found it separately.

 

Jeff, let me know on the wheels/tires. I looked, the tires looked to be in decent shape, not much checking/cracks if any. Wheels have some rust, not as bad as your current ones though, but will need cleaned up.

I am off for 4 days over Thanksgiving.

I will get with you soon on the tires and got the deck on ebay just over the boarder in Indiana,I have to put bearings in the decks if the idler pulleys are not causing the noise and picked up a good pair of pulleys too off ebay. As soon as I can get a set of tires on it I will see how it does but I do still neeed to figure out the throttle linkage some more.
