Great looking ole Custom MH. I have to admit I almost like the looks of the Customs better than the Suburbans. How many Sears does that put you up to now ?


Ummm, gotta go count? And not tell my wife

Nice tractor. You can really tell that it has been well cared for all of it's life. Hopefully it won't take much to get it running.

I need to sharpen my senses and get new glasses.  Some people can just spot them!  That's a beauty. :thumbs:

Did a little research while waiting on it to get above 20 out there.
The engine has been replaced, but by a Craftsman direct replacement. A 143.726182.
(Which cross refs to a H70-130197E, it seems.)
The tractor model is from 68 and the dash isn't missing anything. I thought something was worn off or missing until I found this pic online. Same dash, same year.

Nice!!  I did about the same thing before winter.  On a job, seen a Yard Machine 18 hp, with mower deck (never installed nor seen grass), snow blade, chains, wheel weights, cart.  The dad pasted away, fixxin the house to sell.  The daughter said "buy it, give me a price!".  She stated that her dad only used it one year to plow the driveway. I said, in a joking tone, give ya 2 hundred for it!  and got it!
