Awhile back I was searching the Internet and found a Web site that had complete catalogs from the 70s with the sears tractor line ups. Had pictures and descriptions . It wasn't vintage sears garden tractors.com this had the actual brochres. I cannot find the site again, it was really neat . Has anyone ever saw it. And if so do you know the website or a link . I thought I book marked it but a cannot find it and really wish I I could. Thanks

I believe that's James's site you're talking about.
He had a media fire account with a bunch of manuals, recently it has either been disabled or the direct link to is turned off.

He is a member here, but not very active. maybe he will check in and he may have a different link or something.

Thanks cat 385b, not the same site but it looks to have some 9f the same things I will check it out. Thank you. And MH81 that site you said sounds like it rings a bell to me. That would explain why I cannot find it now. I think there was some pretty good stuff on there.

MH81, James no longer hosts his manuals, he links everything to Dave's ( stripmine) website.

 

http://www.searstractormanuals.com/

 

 

You can also check out www.manualslib.com sometimes they will have older manuals on there

thanks tahoe that's exactly what I was looking for, I just saw on that other website that all the links didn't work. Thanks I needed to look at something for a little project I have. I'll be sure to bookmark it!

http://www.searstrac...com/firefox.htm has a bunch of brochures listed. The link to them is just above 'Contributers' on the left.

I found a Sears catalog archive (1970 to 1993) with tractor and lawn equipment pages only. I just looked and the link content has changed - frankly, looks suspicious, but the URL is below if you want to try it. I downloaded most of the information when I found it, so if you are looking for a particular year, you can PM me.

 

Good luck,

Jim

i see something pretty cool and something i never expected to see. i know early model ss14s have alluminem dashes with cigarrette lighters. i downloaded that big file from that website (i am used to that site have downloaded alot from them) and i looked in the 71 brochure and in spring and fall seen the newer model ss14s. well i got disappointed and said to myself what the heck ill look in the 1970 part. and what do i see in the fall of 1970 page 10 in the folder early model ss14. so i am thinking the ss14s were released in late 70 for early models.

Alan, talked to James. He said Media fire changed the server a couple times on him, his password stopped working so he just dropped it.

Maybe the archives link above is for his old files, I cannot open it.
