Good afternoon. I've joined this group in the hopes of linking up an old piece of tractor hardware with somebody who needs it for a restoration.
I'm an "old car restorer" from way back and understand how tough it can be to find some parts.
Here's the story: (there's always a story, isn't there?)
Back in the late 1970's (1977 I think) I bought a new Garden Tractor from the local Sears store. It was made by Roper as I recall. The engine was a Tecumseh OH140 and it was primarily used for mowing the grass. Great machine.
In addition to the tractor, I bought a generator attachment. It mounted in front of the grille and was powered by a v-belt off the engine. It sat on a shelf for literally decades and was only used once as a test to make sure it worked. It is a 4000 watt unit.
The tractor is long gone, but the generator is still in my garage in new condition. I no longer have the mounting plate for it, but it was simply a few pieces of bend sheet metal. I do have the original Sears manuals for both the generator and the mounting.
Would very much like to find somebody who would like this generator and could pick it up in New Hampshire.
I've attached a pix of this generator. Hope this works and I can find it a new home. [email protected]
