I'm new to MTF and small tractors. I am in need of a fuel tank and dash console for a 917.257080 SN is 1378B05280. I have no idea what will interchange. Any helpful sugestion would be appreciated. Thank, Bob
Bob, I'm pretty sure that searspartsdirect will not have that tank. If they do, you'll encounter a ridiculous price tag for it. Send Joe at Joe's Outdoor(member here and an e-Bay powerseller) an e-mail. He's had a number of them pop up from time to time. Same goes for the dash. Those plastic dashes are normally a shoot out on e-Bay and go for quite a bit since damage is pretty common. Depending on how bad it is(post a pic), you could do a repair. Mine was pretty bad, but I was able to repair it without having to spend a lot.
I would put this dash on there only because they don't break easily like the plastic ones on the GT's - I had a perfect plastic dash i was gonna put on my GT18 but decided to put it on the 18/6 i am restoring, and put a fiberglass one on my GT- changes the look a little, but i like the older ones better
