Just pick up a roper 18T the other day, model# t8328cr , serial# 510b01067. it's got a twin 18 briggs . i don't know the year it was made ? and i think i'm missing the bottom part of the grill. i got the manual from the 20T, everything looks the same other then the engine. anyway, fired her up yesterday and ran great. can't wait to tear it apart. got some pics2011_07230075.jpg

Looks like you have a good starting point. I see so many of these tractors that are missing the right side of the grille, would be nice if some one could make a mold and reproduce that section. Make them look complete from the front. Thanks for the pics and good luck with the new addition.

I love that rugged look on those...Just like the SS18 Sears machines...They look like they could move the world!

They are well built. And this one looks pretty good too.

On many of these models, the Briggs was an option. Not at all unheard of.

I'll do a little looking and see what I can find.

The only manual I can find is for the 18 onan. There is also a manual for the Sears version.

Both are in the GTT manuals, here is the link for the Sears. http://gardentractor...ers-manual-305/
