I recently purchased a 76 sears st12 all orginal down to the tires but the sun has done a toll on the dashboard. Im searching for the dash for this garden tractor so i can have it whole once again. Ps got a super deal on it too 😃

Those are plastic. If you want a similar one, you can get one from any ST/SS tractor 1976-1979. If you get an earlier one 73-75, it will be fiberglass and a little different shape, but they do not break as easy.

Any chance of making your own?  I acquired a White 1655 a year ago that had the center dash busted up.  Had all the fancy monitor stuff that is just something to look sat and cause problems.  I removed it and cut one out using HD plex-a-glass.  Even had the slot for the throttle arm which I cut out with a scroll saw.  Working out good so far.  I don't know the shape of the part your talking about so this "fix" may not work for you.  good luck with your project.

If you don't care about keeping it original and just making it work, you can always mix and match stuff off different years. Not everything mixes and matches perfectly but many things do. You can always swap the dash hood and grill from an earlier version that is all aluminum. I am in the middle of doing a swapping of parts modification to a sears I have now to fit a bigger engine in it. I am not a collector, I just want my tractors to work so keeping it original is not what I am after, but everyone is different. So its just a suggestion.

First thing to do is check all your wiring, make sure none of it got mice chewed or is chaffed. You may have to pull flywheel tin and check the feed wire coming from the front of flywheel to the SSI module, they can get a bare spot and ground out module.

There should also be a 3 wire plug going to back of flywheel area, that has your 2 charge wires and the ignition kill wire. Unplug that, turn it over and then see if you have spark. If you do, then you know have an ignition switch issue.

Never spin motor without having the plug grounded to block, that can burn up a good module.
