Vintage Craftsman Lawn Tractor
I recently acquired an old Craftsman lawn tractor and I'm trying to find some information on it such as date of manufacture, parts availability etc. The serial number on the back of the tractor is "131 96600". If I had to guess, I would say it was manufactured sometime in the late 60's.
It was originally equipped with a 7 horse, electric start engine, but it had been replaced at some point with a 6 horse, pull start "Craftsman" (Tecumseh?) engine.
The plan is to clean it up (strip it down, repaint, etc.) and hot rod it a little bit. Basically, loose the cutting deck and make a little go-kart out of it. I've already pulled the 6 horse and I'm in the process of replacing it with a 10 horse, electric start Tecumseh out of a newer Craftsman rear engined mower.
Like I said, if anybody has any info they could pass along, I would really appreciate it.
Here's a few pics-
Pulled the hood and grill:
Pulled the front axle and set the 10 horse engine in place:
Ultimately, I'm looking to do something similar to this:
