Thanx for the kind words fellas!! I actually bought the mower before I had a Sears tractor to put it on. In fact, I didn't even know what the mower fit when I bought it at an auction. I had to put a pic on a yahoo group asking what it was. I got six emails from people wanting to buy the mower from that one pic.

Well here is mine 2- 1974 SS-16's, they were sold new to the same guy. Then the second owner bought them as a pair and so did I. They are 80 apart in serial number. I plan on painting the other one also just have not had time. I know some might not like that I did not "restore" it with original color, but I did not want a tractor that I was afraid to use because I might scratch it. I repowered both with 16HP Briggs L-Head . I also have several pieces of equipment for them and I also made the loader last year and both have hydraulic three point hitches.

I have a sickle mower very similar to yours. The drive is different though. Mine uses a gearbox mounted into the mule drive slot with a non twisted drive belt to the engine pulley. Then another short belt from the gearbox to a drive shaft going back under the center of the tractor to the mower. My dad bought the mower, new, sometime in the early or mid seventies.

These are my SS/16s they are rough but I plan on restoring them. The first one runs well and the other two will soon.

I have a Sears Suburban SS16 with a modified Willys Overland/ Jeep body on it. Bought it that way. It has full dual exhaust out the back with glasspacks! I would love to get a complete tractor to add to my collection too.[ATTACH=CONFIG]4368[/ATTACH]
