I'm about to buy a bigger tractor and I might have to sell my Sears SS15 to put the money toward the tractor I don't want to but I might have to. Anyway can anybody tell me whats it worth ? It has a new carb,points,condensor,magento and keyswitch I will also be selling it with it attachments ( Moldboard plow , Foot Plow , Cultivator and Disc). It also has a brand new set of Super lugs on the rear.

Sucked up some crud, sound like carb teardown and cleaning time.  You have to remove the main jet first if you want to separate top/bottom carb halves....many times they strip out.

How many gallons of windshield washer fluid go in each tire ? I think my tires spinning probably what caused my belt to stretched.

I did a search and found this.
Dico 26x12x12 rears I put 4 gals each and the rest water and they each went from a prefill weight of 44 lbs to 140 and 139 lbs filled weight.

Hope this helps in your decision. Wheel weights may be better, but shipping is a killer. I have some tire chains that you can try.

spinning tires cant stretch a belt. its very hard to stretch a belt. many times when someone says belt is stretched its not stretched its plain wore out. your machine takes a 5/8s by 82 inch belt get it at tractor supply. kevlar wrapped and will last for years unless you have a bad pulley and belt gets hung up or dont route  it right,. thats usually only time i see drivebelts on these go bad unless they are real old
