Well a Friend from town said he had a 16 HP Sears Roper tractor and I needed parts to repair another friends SS16 with a onan engine, so i went and looked.
Bad News: Couldn't use any parts from this tractor to fix my Buddys' SS 16 Onan. Sorry.
Good News: I Brought Home another 1974 ST 16 Techumseh for Myself. With the original Deck & Mule Drive. He just didn't want to Junk it, so he let me practically HAVE IT for close to Nothing. As you can see she's a little rough But I believe she will come back to life again. That's A Good GT Day
Here are some pics and a walk around video.

‪Sears Suburban ST 16 Model # 91725741‬‏ - YouTube

Thanks Guys, appreciate the comments. here a video Follow up Close look at the ST16....The Big thing about this deal is, the fellow i got it from is a friend of mine & so I trust the story on it 100%. The Fact that it was stored away in a barn for over 10 years, not outside makes the world of difference too., so although it looks like CRAP, nothing is frozen up at all! All the linkage is free too. So it's all just surface rust and Dirt & Grime. Waaaaay to Good To junk. I'm gonna clean her up try to get it going ASAP & will keep you posted. Thanks again for all the kind words.

Nice find DanO. You guys out east must have a zillion Sears GT's around every corner. Harder to find in the mid-west here. I really envey you all. Randy.

Yea, it's True Randy, Sears Products are relatively easy to come by here, as are David Bradley, also sold by Sears, the flip side of that is, Massey and Allis tractors are nearly impossible to come by, where i am anyway. Been looking for a Massey for years.
