Hi, read your post and Don't know much about it!!  Welcome to best GT forum. Ropers were mostly same as Sears and there is a Sears section if you look down farther on the page. Would like to know model or serials and we like pictures to give much help to start.  Check in with the Sears guys below, AND, ask specific questions of what you wish to know please!

ARRGH  I hit something which took me off this screen which when I got back to it, my reply was wiped out...

 

with a model number like that it was a true "ROPER" not a Roper made for Sears to resell... any Identifiers on it? Decals  like "16H" or "18T" ?? Is it a Roper "Rally"? those were cheap models at the end of the line for that company, older ones were much more stout.    I live 3 miles from where that tractor was made. but didn't, while that company was "active"   the empty buildings still stand.

 

what kind of engine does it have?  For the most part, Roper brand machines built for Sears had Tecumseh engines or Onans. Ropers sold thru their own network were largely Briggs or Onan powered.  but not absolute...

:welcome: to GTTalk
I would bet that there are (or were) three digits in front of that model number that would tell us some of what you want to know.
If you are ale to post a picture, that would help us help you as well.

only if that was a "Sears Roper"  of so it should have a "917" and a period in front of the number you post. Ropers sold thru their own network, did not have that.

There is not a lot of info on the Roper serial/model numbers.

Most I have seen have a letter in front of the model numbers.

 

If you can post up a pic or two, that would be a big help.
