Generic MTD grill... need help finding a replacement

Looking for an MTD grill that's on many different MTD made/models out there (Ranch King, Yard Machine, Lawn General, etc.) Below are a couple generic pic's I grabbed off the web that shows the type... it's the type that stays fixed while the hood tilts forward...

The actual rider I'm working with is a Lawn General 17/46 (bah Tecuseh! - lol). MTD sticker under seat is way worn and faded, so I don't know the model number. I've seen this type of grill on many many tractors, but can't seem to find one in good shape and at a decent price (aka cheap!). The one I need to replace is in 20+ pieces - lol!

I'm not picky, only need the grill (not lights, lens cover or hardware), and will take any color and almost any condition - so long as it's not in pieces

If anyone has info on where to get one, please let me know... Thanks!

Re: Generic MTD grill... need help finding a replacement

Thanks for the info, Sergeant... but still not having luck with the site.

In the hopes someone knows another online, local or other resource, I got some more info...

The grill was included on MTD Series 660 & 670 models... across all brands they badged (Ranch King, Huskee, etc.). The part number I've found is 731-1097E, but no searching turns up anything more than operator/part manuals... not place that actually has one

So - if anyone else can help, please chime in! Thanks!

I saw the headline of this thread and thought I had one for you, but mine is too old, not even close to what you need.

If it's FREE, it's for ME!

ALWAYS remember to remove the spark plug wire from the plug before sticking your hand in the machine!!!! The fingers you save could be your own.

Re: Generic MTD grill... need help finding a replacement

I think I'll be parting my MTD out, I have to wait till this weekend to see if a tractor I am getting is going to work if so I will take a look and see if my grill is in good enough shape for you. If I remember correctly I think it is broke where it bolts to the frame. If that's the case I have some Norton 2 part epoxy that I will use to repair it for you if you are interested.

patrog - thanks for the info. I'm just too much of a cheapskate to spend over $80-$85 on a new grill... lol
