Roper 18T BG-MS 2950A
I'm not even sure of the year.
A few pics, and a problem to tend to soon.
Flywheel cover removed,air breather and carb/intake manifold removed.
Spark and plug checked,
Dead cylinder,causing some (unbalanced) vibration.
Possible lack of compression.
*Notice the fenders*
More news to come !
You guys hit me before i could edit the post in a few quick minutes,lol.
Yes, everything was there,,just removed by me in prep of rebuild.
Was doing some basic snooping before actually yanking the engine out.
I have used this machine much over the spring and summer, ran great.
Thanks for the tip on the manual.....guess I shoulda used my brain because I have been to Stripmine's manuals site many times but only for Sears stuff so far. Guess I'll have to dig into some Roper stuff. When was the last run of the Roper tractors with the shared Suburban parts?
Roper sold "Suburbans" (for lack of a better name) tru 81 I think. Sears last year of Suburbans was 79 with the GT/18, GT/16, and GT/19.9. The only discussion I remember about Canadian vs. American models was the fact that the Canadian 19.9's were yellow and white not silver and black
