Here's a new tractor that I just picked up. Runs great ! Can anyone tell me what it is, and where I can find a manual ? The only numbers I can find are stamped into the plate by the shifter - 6364. That's all I can find. Thanks !

It is 50 years old, good luck finding a manual but search under Craftsman Suburban You can find engine and transmission info by posting the individual model numbers.

It better look like this by next week!
I googled "vintage craftsman suburban mowers" then hit image button.
You may find information that way.

I think it's actually a '66 or earlier Sears Suburban 10 or 12. The square fenders are a holdover from the David Bradley series tractors and then Sears went to round fenders in '67.

Here's my now ancient video series of my '67 Suburban restoration. It might have a few helpful tidbits for you.

Thanks a lot guys.

I cleaned it up a little and it looks like it has had a restoration at some point. there's a different carb on it. Runs OK, but I'll tell ya this thing is fast !

Anyone know where I can find a model number ?

For the most part it looks original to me. Yeah they are fast and dangerous, that's why I luv em! :cool: Look where your feet go if they slip off the tiny foot rest!

Re: the serial number, it should be on that plate just forward of the shifter. Get a flash light and get down to look at it from different angles, it should be stamped into the aluminum. You may also be able to lay some paper over it and rub the side of a pencil lead across to transfer the stamped numbers.
