    Sears SS/16

    I picked up a Sears SS/16. A friend saw it for sale over the weekend and asked if I was interested. $100, ran when parked, how could I say no? Only problem, I was away on vacation, and it would most likely be sold before I got back, so he went over and paid for it. We went over yesterday to pick it up. The previous owner’s uncle bought it new, and it sounds like it was mostly used for plowing snow. He said it should run, you just have to tap the starter with a hammer. It ran last year. Now it has no spark, probably needs the points cleaned. When you let off the key, the starter keeps spinning, so I think it needs a key switch too. It’s in pretty good shape, should clean up nice. The only damage I see is that the hood is cracked around the hinge, which seems to be a common problem on these.

    Looks good! I’ve seen a few of those for sale over the years but never picked one up. I just get the Cubs...that is until recently I picked up my first green one. Thought it might be good to try another kind 😁

      The only reason I bought this was because it was too good of a deal to pass up. I’ll probably sell it once I get it fixed.

    Congrats on the tractor!

    The starter keeping spinning can be a stuck voltage regulator, or sticking solenoid. Not likely the key switch.

    Lance, you have a blue one now too....

    Just because it's old, doesn't mean it's obsolete!

    I've got a lot of Cubs in the barn....but I have more implements/attachments!

      Thanks. I think the issue was just that the gear was not returning on its own. I took the starter off, lubed up the gear, and it seems to be working good. Now I have to figure out why it’s not getting power since I put it back together. The positive battery cable doesn’t look to good, so I will start by putting a new end on it.

      Time for an update. I got it running, the solenoid was bad. The no spark issue was a loose wire going to the points. It runs great with the choke closed a little so I think the carb needs to be cleaned. I have used it a few times, so far I like it. I didn’t get a chance to wash it yet, but I will post more pictures when I do.
