Sears Craftsman FF20 Monster Garden Tractor - first start
Here is our new tractor, a Sears FF20 tractor powered by a 20hp opposed
twin Onan engine. This was/is the biggest tractor ever produced by sears.
It has a direct drive Eaton hydro transmission which drives huge 26" rear
wheels. This thing could crush the GT5000 if it had the chance, and
weighing in at 850lbs, that would be no problem for it. The paint job
sucks, as does the seat. But for $200 it was a well worth it!
The Craftsman GT5000's dead Kohler diagnosis
Here's our new Craftsman GT5000 Garden Tractor with a broken Kohler Pro
25hp V-Twin motor. Harry Homeowner said it just quit running; he told us
"one of the pistons is stuck". Wasn't really sure what the hell that meant,
so we checked it out as soon as we got it home. Watch and see what we
Some rusty old tractors we got for free
A lot of this is junk, but there is at least one diamond in the rough here.
It was a sight unseen must-take-all kind of deal, so we went with
Sterling's diesel Dodge truck and a borrowed trailer and pulled these
relics out of a poison ivy filled muddy yard and brought them to tractor
land. Oh yeah, and Dave got a bed liner for his Chevy for free too.
1982 Craftsman LTV/10 lawn tractor with no compression
I couldn't remember what was wrong with this Craftsman LTV/10 lawn tractor,
so I figured I would see if I could get it to start, but quickly found out
it's 10HP Briggs & Stratton engine had no compression. Just listen to it! I
don't need a gauge to tell me it has no compression when it sounds like
that! It was about then I remembered where it came from. We bought it for
$35 at a swap meet a few years ago, drove it about 150 feet, and it
abrubtly died. The motor is fixed now, it ended up being a burnt valve.
The Murray tractor from the Dump
This is the Murray we found at the dump. It was flipped over in a scrap
metal pile, had no wheels, and someone dumped a huge box of silverware all
over it. But when I saw that 14.5 OHV Briggs on it, I figured what the hell
-lets take it. 4 old wheels and one used starter later, it ran and drove
fine. It ran so well in fact, that we decided to sell the motor. So I
thought I'd take a video of it before I brought it into the garage to take
it's engine off and replace it with a 12hp B&S from another Murray.
Roper Garden Tractor
called my friend over with his GT to turn over some sod.
im filming him (ShnitzlHaus thats me). we know he shouldnt have had his
deck on, and he should have had his wheel weights on... but a storm was
coming and we needed this done.
good thing its an old tractor and he wasnt to concerned.
Sears Craftsman FF20 Garden Tractor: First start and drive
We finally got this beast running after fixing a stuck intake valve (it did
run before, but on one cylinder). This is the first start and drive after
the repair. It still needs some work, the carb needs to be choked
constantly at full throttle, and the cylinder that had the stuck valve
smokes like crazy. All in all, its an awesome tractor.
Uncovering the original '85 Roper Lawn Tractor
Purchased brand new April 29th, 1985, this Roper LT11 was used for 19
mowing seasons until being retired in the fall of 2003 after Dave's father
passed away. It has been sitting in the garage since then covered with a
tarp. Now, in April of 2009, we pull all the junk out of the back of the
garage and take a look at this now 24 year old machine.
Rebuilding a lawn tractor transaxle [Part 2 of 2]
In these two videos Dave and Lynol rebuild a Tecumseh Peerless 5-speed
manual transaxle model 930-054A out of a 1996 AYP built Weed Eater. This
transaxle is very widely used on lawn tractors in 3, 4, 5, & 6 speed
configurations dating back to the early 1980's. You'll find these on brands
from Murray to Craftsman to Husqvarna, just to name a few. It is also very
similar to some transaxles made by Foote and Spicer (Dana). These videos
are a general overview on how to take them apart and a look at what's
inside. Don't let these things intimidate you; there not that complicated.
If you are good at tinkering and are mechanically minded, you can probably
fix your transaxle too!
Here's a link to a exploded diagram and parts list for this particular
transaxle so you can see what exactly is inside:
How Murray's 'Shift-on-the-go/fly' works
For years Murray used a system called 'Shift-on-the-go' also called
'Shift-on-the-fly' in their gear drive, front engine lawn tractors. The
transaxle is not anything special, just a regular 6-speed manual-shift
Peerless. The trick is in the clutching system, watch and learn.
The Scrap Report, and another blasted tractor!
Well, today I scrapped the 6 junk lawn tractors, and a bunch of other junk
too, and picked up a 18hp craftsman tractor too....hmmm I cant seem to keep
myself from dragging in these blasted things!!
I want yalls opinion on this craftsman tractor!!! Fix it or use it for
Also, I have seen the Davidsfarm bust vids, please support him, I do!!!
18 HP Onan "No Start" and fix? on 1977 Craftsman GT18 Tractor
I was told this machine wouldn't run on anything but full choke. This
video covers my work on the engine to figure out the problem.
My grandfather's 1977 Craftsman GT18 Garden Tractor that is now mine. A
rugged beast with an Onan 18 HP opposed twin engine connected to a
hydrostatic drive. I believe the tractor was made for sears by Roper.
