Hello all--
I am obviously new to this forum.
I have several different DB's (4 wheelers) and need some help.

I have one that I used to use to plow and mow with before experiencing engine problems. My father took it to see if he could get it to work, but passed away before completing the task. He was planning on selling the whole lot, but since his passing my brother and I have decided to keep the 725 suburban.
I am interested in selling or trading the other 3.
Here is a list of
Tractor 1 (this is the one we plan to keep)
Sears Suburban 725, 917 60680 (may be 60630, can't read the number) S/N 198_ _ series
Briggs engine, Model 19, type 706051
48 " mower deck
Three point hitch (old style), and "draw bar"
Turning plow
Cultivator with mold boards (2) or hillers.
3 point disk


Tractor 2, Parts tractor
Sears Suburban 725, 917 60633 (or 38), S/N 243 _ _
Hood, fenders, belt cover in fair shape, various parts, pieces
No Engine

Tractor 3 parts tractor
1960 David Bradley 917 60614
Has battery box, hand brake type, good front wheels/tires, no hood, no seat
42 " +/- mower deck and lift handle assembly

Tractor 4,
1961 DB Suburban 917 60616 S/N 98 _ _
Hood & mounting brackets
#3 point hitch
Rear wheels & tires (bad). Front wheels with no tires.
this tractor was bought in the process of being torn down to rebuild.





This is a picture of the 725--I would be interested in trading for some tires(?) but will entertain all offers

:wave: texagg welcome to GTTalk! We're glad to have you with us. If you could post some details about what's wrong with the engine on the one you're keeping, I'm sure that someone here will be able to point you in the right direction. Thanks for signing up!

:welcome: to GTTalk
Thats a nice DB you have there, :thumbs: on keeping the one as a remembrance.

As for the buy/sell/trade, your best bet would be to put in separate ads in the classifieds area found up in the header bar links.

Thanks for welcome.
I am not sure what exactly is the problem with the engine. When it first stopped working, I took it to a small engine repair guy who told me he thought it was electrical, but could not fix it. My father and another small engine guy thought it was a fuel problem. I plan to take it to another repairman who says that he can get it running.

Good idea on the three parts machines..I will get some photos and put them in the classifieds later this week.

We have some pretty smart fellas here regarding engine troubles. Might get it home and see what's there & what's what.

Just from what you have said, I bet the coil died. They will still fire some and make you swear it is out of gas. Plus that engine is prone to coil failures. You can get them aftermarket pretty cheap.

I have bought a few coils, you have to take the core out of yours, I carefully hacksaw it out if it won't slide, and most won't, and slide it in the new coil. I keep an extra on the shelf now. Since you have extra tractors, why not take the coil off another and fix the good one?
