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

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.

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..

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

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.

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..

Dose anyone know what these are for

That bracket is for holding the control rods for the snowblower attachment.

As far as color, try 1971 Chevrolet Bridgehampton Blue. Chevy's code is "979". The original Sears color was called "Seaton Blue" and has a small amount of metallic in it. Hard to see it when old and faded but it's there.

Thanks I’ll look into that blue and I guess I’ll have to keep ahold of those brackets incase I ever get a blower
