brand new to GTtalk and also

Being new to the Sears line, I acquired this tractor and 2 almost identical parts tractors from my Dad. He did the restore on this one, but there is no serial number/data plate, We believe it to be a 67'. All 3 have the "Flat" fenders as I notice most of the ones on here are round. Are the flat fenders identification of a particular year/model. this one is a 10hp. 6 speed Tecumseh. Also if you know of any good places for parts please advise. Looking for dash decal for starters..Thanks.

Great looking Suburban. 1966 was the first year of the Roper built Suburban and the last year for square fenders on a Suburban. So if you go by the fenders it would be a '66.

Thanks for all the kind words, the fenders are still on the shelf, painted and ready to install. basically just needs new wiring, ignition switch and finish the assembly, was hoping to have it in Pawnee OK. next month, not sure if I will make it by then!

Make absolutely sure you get the right switch, if you don't you will ruin the ignition module. :wallbanging:  Good looking Sears for sure and a great story about being your Dad's tractor !! :thumbs:
