Not much. 14 year old pic, probably worse now. Raincatcher tailpipe has probably filled the engine with water. Style looks like mid 70s to mid 80s. Might be good for some parts. Good Luck, Rick

I must have a different picture. I don't see any kind of exhaust.

That lift lever looks like a stack unless you zoom in or have big monitor.

The picture is 2 days old I just never bother to set the date on my camera. What you are interpreting as an exhaust is a lift handle. In my area, outside the freeze thaw cycle can be disastrous. Thanks Don

You are right. I thought the lift lever was a tail pipe. 17" monitor and old eyes.

Murray built Sears GT16 from around 1977/78 by the shape of the hood.

 

Murray Ohio Mfg.

Peerless 2300 Transaxle 4 forward, one reverse

Engine: Briggs and Stratton vertical shaft Twin Cylinder

 

1977                                                             mid 1980s

Identicle to this one.

There a good tractor.Little lighter than you'll expect from a GT of it's size but it will get the job done.Frame on these were pretty weak.Sears does not recommend using a Loader on them but it's OK to use a 10" moldboard plow hmmmmmm lol
