It would help if you provide the model number. It can often be found on the rear of the tractor, below the seat, probably on the hitch plate.
It does look like you have a Suburban, based on a picture of one for sale I found. I think that would be older than my own 1982 GTV 11.Tractor Info: Sears Craftsman GT16 Varidrive, Model #:917.257091, Serial#: 1280B02756, Engine Info: 1 cylinder, horizontal, 16hp. Tecumseh: Model # 143.680032.
What I was really looking for is the PTO engage mechanism. I have the parts shown in my manual installed on the tractor. There needs to be a tension/idler pulley moved by the engage foot pedal to engage the implement drive belt. That's the part I'm having trouble visualizing and a photo, diagram, or sketch may help me do that. I thought that if I had info on a mower that installs on this tractor it would show that part of the mechanism.
The mower deck looks very similar to my own as do the dozer blade mountings.I just drug one of those home today. The number on my deck is 917.253572. I havent even tried to put the deck on it yet, and I dont know what year it is but it is a gt 16. Its a completely different animal compared to the suburbans. Hope that helps some.
Follow the link in my signature block to see some pix of my baby brother machine.Hello everyone! I have same problem as edkedk has couple years ago.
I purchased GT 16 tractor while ago (p/n 917.257091) and recently purchased deck for it (p/n 917.253572). Can't find manuals for tractor either mower deck. Also looking for attachment/mower deck engagement mechanism/pulleys. Can someone take pictures of it and share? Will be very appreciated. Thanks. Al
