Wish I didn't have to download the manual one page at a time and them only get like 3-4 a day.. I'll be taking a picture of the engine soon.

Nice looking tractor.

You can download the full manual for a 1976 ST12 Model 917.25930 at http://www.searstractormanuals.com

Many attachment manuals are also available.

There are also manuals for 1972 and 1973 ST-16s.

Good luck,

Jim

Now the big question is what year if it's an st16 and not a 12?

 

Also link to the "new" manual would be appreciated.

 

New belt came today. Not installed but matches the old belt pretty good so I think it's the right one. 5/8" x 81"

Checked the transaxle oil and it's low to say the least but I planned on changing it anyway.

It's still '76. model number 917.25940/941 matches the 1976 year for the ST16.

 

I have a 74 and a 77

 

 

I have PDF copies of the 1973/74 and 1977 ST16 manuals if you want. PM me your email address and I can email them

Tahoe PM sent. :) I appreciate it. This tractor is going to need plenty of help now that I've looked it over more. Missing wires for the attachment pedal and other places, brakes aren't wanting to work, need to pick up a couple knobs (the Budweiser ones were on when bought but the hi/lo one broke due to it being cold), missing the brake light, have to redo the seat because filling the gas tank is hell, have to somehow fix the cracks in the dash panel and fix the hood for the 2nd time. Few modifications will be made. First on the list to modify is the oil drain for the engine and then the muffler.

I'll keep you all updated if wanted and I'll be asking where to get some parts soon enough.

The seat should be on a hinge to flip up for filling.

The dash is plastic, you will need probably an epoxy to repair the cracks properly.

wiring is not too bad, they only have a safety switch on the clutch pedal and one on the attachment pedal ( mule drive lever).

That's not a brake light under seat, just a red clearance light.

Hopefully your brakes just need adjusting. The lining is possibly worn out, that requires the rearend to be dropped out so you can access it.

Nope. P.O. put on what looks like a JD seat and did some funny welding in the back.

Was going to gorilla glue but epoxy may look better.

Hopefully that's all the wiring. Haven't looked hard.

Should be easier to find then.

Going to adjust them after I put on the new belt and change the engine oil. I'll want on the transaxle oil til after I do the adjustment just in case.

 

Thanks for the manuals. I shall put them to good use.

Starting work on the mower deck soon. It's the one with the flat bar not the round. Anyone have a clue on size or where to get the tensioner pulley and spring?
