I have a 1965 Craftsman riding lawn mower number 131.8250.  See attached pictures which are not the restored version.  It is almost restored except for paint. It has a fiberglass body and a three speed trans with a Tecumseh motor.  I am looking for manuals for the same.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

No Chris, I found this one in New York from a website. I used to mower with one years ago and had to have another. You going to Bernarston? Weather permitting of course. LOL

I may actually have a manual in my possession for that mower or one similar, let me check tonight.

 

I have a mower that actually looks like that too, not sure the make on it.

I have a similar version but the motor sits more towards the front so my manual wont work.

It's a couple numbers off, yours is 8250, this one is 8270, but.....

 

Now if someone can teach me how to scan to my computer so they go all in all in one file in order, I can try to upload.
