A good friend of mine has a Roper Yard tractor, model# YT160BT, ser# 2784 S02136 that needs a few parts for the transaxle. The transaxle has a sticker on the rear of it that has 917.10205X on it and ser #0156 S03422. I have a Peerless service manual and it does not look like any of them. I understand that Roper is now American Yard Products and that 917 is a sears code for Roper corp. So, my questions are:
Did only sears sell Ropers?
Who made the transaxle?
Where can I get a parts breakdown of the tractor/transaxle? Any sites with online parts catalogs that I have found don't list Roper tractors.
