I would  appreciate  that , Craftsmanmowerfreak , being a heavy equipment mechanic for 40 years next year I have sources for the parts , my starter guy tells me he could put something together for me , but I would really like to be sure the amperage , pulley diameter and belt width  is right and I would like to give him a part number to work with , he did tell me that were not many to pick from 

 

The guy I got the tractor sold it cause he couldn't get it running right , I found that the choke shaft had let go at the linkage arm and would stay closed all the time , bought a new choke shaft and a carb kit and spent $35 , and the float kept sticking and dripping gas , the carb was in a pitted condition internally  , got feed up and bought the after market carb for $46 , been happy with it so far , the OEM carb list for over $200 

 

I am not 100% sure of the year of the tractor , I think it a 72  , the model number is 917.25201

First off, welcome to the forum!!!!

 

 

The attachments I got with it are an angle blade , a one sided plow , and the other has 4 adjustable spades and 2 disc wheels , I think it is a row maker , as you can tell I am not a framer ,

 

You would have a dirt/snow blade, a moldboard plow for plowing gardens, and a cultivator.

 

 

 

I am not 100% sure of the year of the tractor , I think it a 72  , the model number is 917.25201

 

 

 

you are correct, Sears only made the SS15 in 1972.

1972 Suburban 15  917.25200     now the last number is not always the same they tend to bounce around between 0 and 1 on these suburban 15. and yes this answers the question grill was replaced. http://www.vintagese...ewsuburban.html

Thank you so much Craftsman' , I am going to give my guy at the starter shop a call and see if that does anything for him , I am hoping he can build me one ---------the bike in the back round is a classic and I think very rare , we are heavy into ATV's and machines that run in the dirt , I like to fish but my real hobby is  wet dirt , it is a 1973 1/2 Honda Xl250 with a 250 MotorSport engine , last year and they tuned them down  , with an ATV wheel kit on it which I believe was made by Missile Engineering  , it sat in a barn till 3 years ago from 1975

I see you put a 16 Briggs in a 15 tractor , i don't know about your motor but on mine you had to remove the front grill to change the oil , so I did some modification to it , drilled and grinded the front grill and added some pipe and a allen headed plug in the end of the 90 degree fitting , makes oil change a snap and no mess , I have not did the second coat of paint on the grill and still have to reinstall the grill screens  and head lights ---also a pic of the stainless tank my buddy made for me

you have to pull the pan and swap it around

I kinda thought about  rotating the pan , but I didn't want to unbolt the motor , this is more a functionally rebuild and not a restoration and I have a dip stick /filler tube   , had the grill off to work on the carb and choke cable  ,   the oil is easy to change now ----------

 

I gave the stater guy the numbers and he told me he would get back to me tomorrow -----

 

knowing the name of my attachments makes me feel like Green Acres , you know that old school TV show , maybe I should go put name tags on them till I get use to them , I moved from New Orleans in 2008 , and live in the rural part , always had nice gardens every year and was the milton king , grows on a vine  some called it coyote pears or coyote squash and there is another name I forget , but man make a stuffing casserole with shrimp and militon and you got it going on

Nice site for Roper , got to get the right size tires for the front of my15 it never bother me before but now it does --------I eally like the parts break down in that format , the engine is just a little different than mine , not sure if the dipstick tube was right for my 16 as it has a breath tube nipple on it , I made a vent for it , you might see it in the pics 

 

Nice CL 100 , love the black out look , my neighbor had a gold one , I had a orange and white 1973 Suzuki 125 street and dirt I can't remember the letters, DZ or RZ ,  but I do remember I use to eat his Cl100up ,  I think I would have a gold Fluer de Les (Saints emblem ) on it as even though the Saints ain't worth a darn this year , I still believe ------that is a cool tractor , looks like a Briggs 16 , you could do duals , those are the same rims , it's like $54 for the (I'd call them nylo-tron ) rings  and bolts , the old guy at the lawn mower shop gave me the extra tires

basic engine parts should be the same like gaskets. from what i see from you model number is front tires should be 16 x 5 x 8
