Welcome to GTT. There are many manuals available in our Manuals Section. You are allowed 3 free downloads per day. The problem is to find the correct manual. Wards did not manufacture their tractors but had them made for them. They were probably made by AYP or MTD. If you can figure out who made it, you can probably find the manual that covers your tractor even if it has a different brand on it. Ask questions and include pics to clarify what you are describing. Good Luck, Rick

Any chance those last two digits are swapped?  Should it be TMO-3397103?

If so that model is on the MTD to Wards model conversion chart on MTD's website.  The manual shows it being a 38" deck 12.5hp.


You can download it directly from MTD here:  http://www.mtdproduc...3j.pdf=


Most any of the MTD lawn tractor manuals from that time period would apply.
