I can't wait to see this nice old Sears come to life again. It is exactly what I started out with for the General, and I just like the look of these things. It's a 1980, or close. For what it's worth, I don't think the thread is titled correctly. These units were branded "Sears" with no sign of "Craftsman" anywhere.

I got mine on a pretty good deal- a co-worker's father-in-law sold it to me for $120- ran, drove, mowed. Just needed a bit of carb tweaking. I will NEVER do that again- lesson learned. people! If you want to build a legitimate racer, don't start with a perfectly good tractor. It's heartbreaking. All those good parts- into the proverbial scrap bin!

I can tell you from personal experience that the hood is a bit narrow, and fitting an opposed twin in there won't just be a drop-in affair. I had to do a cut-out on each side of my hood to clear the top corners of the blower housing.

Stretch's tractor is pretty much the same thing... It fit an opposed, and later a V-twin briggs, fine. The hood is pretty stuffed, but it closes.

That tractor will be bad ass, I'm sure!

tractors are still branded and produced and stickered from different companys. my 06 husqvarna is made by AYP, has a sears/ roebuck manufacture tag on it, and branded husqvarna! i went to sears for blades, and you now them "always gotta assist" even if i tell em to frigg off! he asked "what style blade" i said 5 star. he says "are you sure, our new ones are made by MTD which are 6 star. the older and new big garden tractors are made by husqvarna".. its all a cluster-stuck of manufacturers and stickers.. same product, branded 30 different ways

didn't get as much done as i wanted, been cleaning up the shed trying to find all the bolts i need with not much luck, but i did take apart the the mst-205 that wouldn't shift and got it working now, but ima go on and lock it before i reassemble it, what was causing it not to shift is that it had a bad seal on it and got dust and water trough into it and then the oil hardened somehow lol i had to put a wire brush in the drill to get it all off, im going to put the nutbuster back on it for simplicitys sake.

With a deal like that going on, I'd be putting up ads all over the places for scrap/junk mowers for free or even maybe $20. Pick them up, scalp what you want, bring them to your scrap guy, and totally clean him out of anything good.
