Thanks daniel_b the sear catalog add and photo is cool that mower looks just like mine except 10 times better the 8hp add is probably what I have, the man I bought it from his cousin put that funky gray paint on it but I'll fix that later on, I feel kinda ignorant but I found the model # while looking under the mower checking on adjusting the brakes so here is the model number for a vintage sears LT8 1979 maybe ? 917.255260 I just got this old mower its in decent shape good engine, good sheet metal, lights work, good tires, mows good, needs brake work that's next, and I put a new exhaust on it changed the oil, air filter, spark plug, I will restore it eventually but just going to use it for now.

well, see, there i was, going to be leading you astray...
when i looked at the sears - roper - ayp stuff, didn't find anything that seemed quite right,
(and sears never did put manufacturer prefixes in their catalogs...)
soooo, i just ASSumed and gave credit to murray, (see what that got me, huh???)
good thing you found, as Paul Harvey used to say, "the rest of the story" - the 917.*** prefix, so now you at least have the right model number to search with, although, with the age involved, everything will just be "sorry, no longer available..."
here is a link to what is really an IPL, (illastrated parts list), but at least you would have a general idea of what attaches to what...
Model # 917255260 CRAFTSMAN Lawn, Tractor
