19?? suburban

Post  Murphdogg59 on December 21st 2008, 5:45 pm

i bought this tractor from a friend he thinks its a 12 horse and possibly a 1965 but lookedup some pics seems more like 1970 although is has the starter/generator on it i need any kind of info as in owners /repair manuals as i dont even know how to attach the mowing deck. it also will NOT keep a charge it has many newer parts we put a solonoid into it as they had ign. straight to battery motor was completely rebuilt but we cant seem to find any i d numbers anywhere on the block or frame any help would be much apreciated as my grandfather had a suburban very similar to this and i loved his if i cant keep this running i may have to part with it as wife has about had all my cursing she can handle!!

Is there a problem with the battery, or is your charging system not working? You can do a quick test on the charging system with a cheap voltmeter to see if there is output from the generator.

There are no official repair manuals for the tractors that I know of. Techumseh engine repair manuals are available, but the rest of the tractor is pretty straight forward in design. There are sources for operating instructions and repair manuals. This will help with the mower mounting issue.

Feel free to upload some pictures of your tractor on this site. We can be much more helpful if we see a picture of what you are talking about. No doubt someone here will be able to answer your question or at least lead you in the right direction.

Very Happy
