Greetings Folks. Well, I am now the owner of a  Sears LT11 Lawn Tractor? Having always been a push mower type, I never thought I'd wind up with something like this. My son picked it up today then dropped it in my yard. No battery, a blown fuse, two flat front tires (with new spare tires), a very dirty 11h.p. B&S, and rust all over.

A quick search showed this beast isa 1981 model with no manual available from Sears. I don't mind monkey wrenching, but I really need to understand what I'm looking at, and if needed get the proper replacement parts if available.

This is a Model# 502.601140

Date of Manufacture ; 1133

The above on the metal plate attached to the back of the tractor.

 

My question; Is there a manual out there that can help me?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

 

Ian

Welcome to GTT. The critical manual will be the Briggs and Stratton Repairmans' Manual because you need it for the engine. Once you get the engine running, then the other things should be easy to figure out. Good Luck, Rick

Nice you are going to get wheels under you.
Looks like the guys have you covered on the manual, the B&S manual in our manuals section is a good knowledge base too.
You'll have to work thru wiring issues as I'm sure that a least one safety switch is temperamental.
Good luck, take and share pics, and ask questions as you need to.

Probs with the engine? Have you tried to find an answer here at the B&S Support?

According to this chart it was made by murray http://vintagemachin...ufacturers.aspx

 

that might help you find parts if you need a donor machine.

 

small older ones like that are pretty easy to figure out if it's going to run/drive/cut, before spending too much time or money, good luck
