This tractor belongs to a fellow gttalk member and I was considering purchasing it off of that member. He said that the 16hp onan in it isnt original and needs a carb. My questions are: what year is it? How common are they? How are they to operate? How much are they worth? Thanks

I have a GT 18 of that vintage,but mine has the Tech engine. I use mine a lot and it is a very strong tractor mine must not have been used much as it is good shape.I have repainted it. They are fairly rare as I have only seen 2 others since I got mine a couple years ago and they where using them to pull at the tractor pulls, and tried to buy mine, but I was not ready to part with it yet. My GT 18 is a 1976. I think they made them 1976 & 1979

The fellow GTTalk member probably thinks it is worth $3000.  Maybe $4000.

 

:D

 

Be careful with spending too much on problem child Onans.  Parts are astronomical when it comes to doing a lot of work.

I have a picture in the registry of my GT 16 [or is it an 18?]  I'd have to look up the model # to be sure which it is. 

Not sure if they made a GT 16.    It was a OHV Tecumseh single but I changed the engine to Wisconsin. 

Its listed as a "Sears GT 16".   ENJOY!!

The "GT" tractors were made in 1978 & 79. They did have a 16 Hp twin, 18 Hp Twin and also a single 18 Tecumseh, and of course the big block 19.9.

 

1973-1976 they were "ST" i.e. single Tecusmeh OH motors, and "SS" i.e. twin Onans. 1977 was only year for the 16/6 single, 16/6 twin, and 18/6 twin model names, but same tractors as the earleir ones. The changed to the "GT" model names in 78
