Just a few pictures of some of the Sears tractors. First is my '61 David Bradley. It had sat outside non running for 30 years when I got it. It is a runner / driver now. Next is my '72 Suburban 12. I got it without an engine and put a HH100 10hp recoil start engine off a David Bradley Suburban on it,along with a mid 70's deck and mule drive. I have been using it to mow with this year. Next is my 68 Suburban 12,one of my favorites. This tractor was left in the weeds after the owner passed on and wasn't in good condition when I got it. It is my favorite go to tractor to use this year. Then my 76 "custom" SS18. When I got it,it was a non runner with no hood,grill,or dash. For now I fitted a Sears Custom grill on it along with a 65 David Bradley hood and dash. It runs and drives nice now but I switched to a newer style Nikki carb and still need to find a air cleaner. I also need to eventually find a correct gas tank for it.

The hood fit the grill and sits pretty good at the dash side too. The only thing that I really had to do to make it work was cut out for the exhaust. The setup could still use a little fine tuning but it works well enough for now.

The grill itself was a little more work to make fit. I had to drill new mounting holes. I also had to take off some off the left side off the grill housing to clear the blower housing on the Onan. I had to cutout the bottom right side to clear the belts for the mule drive for the mower.
