Found a mouse nest in the motor that could be why it was overheating

Re: 1963 sears suburban 725

Between dirt, gass clippings, and those little buggers building nests in them, it's a wonder sometimes when they don't overheat.

Re: 1963 sears suburban 725

Those are great little work horses. The briggs feel like they have a lot more power because the gearing is so low. Good find, and I'm glad you are keeping it going. I had one several years back, and I traded it to a friend of mine who has more David Bradleys than sears. He loves the Briggs.

Re: 1963 sears suburban 725

Engine paint looks close to "Ford Blue" tractor paint...the tractor has a lighter blue ,I think Rustoleum makes a light blue close to that..if you google "rustoleum paint chart" under "Images" you'll see paint color charts showing what colors they have available..

Re: 1963 sears suburban 725

A place to put your feet? May also double as a step to use while getting on/off the tractor?

No the white parts That are bolted to the footrests. I think they are for some kind of attachment but don’t know what. They both have two bolts in them that attach to something

Re: 1963 sears suburban 725

Sorry, it wasn't clear what bits you were referring to. This looks like a job for....Previous Owner... They don't look oem, so they could be for virtually anything.

Re: 1963 sears suburban 725

Maybe they were added so a later "sissors deck" would fit on it ?...
Maybe a home made grader blade or something else was used on it before you got it.
They dont look "factory" to me,but then I have not seen many older Suburbans like this one up close..
