What's wrong with that one? Bolens 1000 may have parts for it.

If you need parts for that one I can probably help you with that, can also find a new carb but those are getting pricey these days,

Whats the engine model & spec number, may be able to source a different model carb cheaper

Wouldn't you know it?  I had all of those numbers on a piece of paper next to my computer and my wife decided to clean off my desk -- for perhaps the second or third time since we've been married.  It wasn't even all that cluttered.  ;) 

 

I'll have to go out to the shop and write them down again -- but to be honest, they haven't helped any of the several sources I have already tried.  The reason for this is that Sears put their own numbers on the engine (and everything else) instead of the mfgr numbers.  Sears only lists one carb for that model and it is A) permanently out of stock (end-of-lifed) and B) presumably the carb I have but listed under a different (sears format) number.

 

The engine is a cast iron, OHV, horizontal shaft 14HP Tecumseh, presumably built within a year or so of 1978.  It may have been built exclusively for Sears, as I have not been able to find any other references online, nor have I talked to anyone that has ever seen one.

 

It will take me a day or so to get to it to get the numbers.  I'll post them ASAP.  Thanks, guys.

Get the Sears model # off the engine, we have a cross reference for it in the manuals section.

The Sears # on the engine is 143-660012 Ser 8320E.  I really appreciate the help, BTW.  Parts & information for this old GT are pretty scarce around here.  ;)  Shoot, it's a LOT easier finding stuff for my '52 Ford 8N...

I thought you said that was pricey.  Shoot, that's barely 3 times what I paid for the tractor (with a snow blower & 42" mower deck).

 

;)

 

Seriously though, I wish I hadn't put as much into this guy as I have.  I suppose there's a valuable life lesson in there someplace.

Really depends what your intentions are,  If you enjoy the tractor put the $$ in it to keep it going, This hobby is not a money maker and rarely do you ever come out on top if you resell a machine down the road.

 

I just like collecting & restoring these vintage tractors to showcase what they looked like when new and the carftsmanship that used to go into every one

Try a carb off a Kohler K series 14 or 16hp, it will bolt to the engine but the air cleaner may be a challenge.
