I have seen this type of Goodall mower deck before on another tractor forum but it didn't have an engine on it.
I believe that Goodall was one of the first to manufacture a rotary blade mower.
Reel mowers were used up until then.
However, I do question whether the engine is original or not ?
I believe he used Lauson engines in his mowers.
I'm probably all wet here but I don't think they made a crank top starting system for small engines in 1945 ?
Also, I'm not sure they made that square style gas tank back in 1945 ?
The Goodall mowers that I've seen all had round gas tanks on them.
Any chance the engine was changed and the whole thing repainted ?

That looks like a heavy duty type push mower.

[ATTACH=CONFIG]27201[/ATTACH]The deck is from 1945 #33 in production line, 32" deck. I am not sure if the motor is original.
No, B&S did not manufacture that syle engine in the 1940's. .....If you get the B&S numbers from the engine, you should be able to determine the age.
However, the Goodall mower looks very much like the Goodall mowers sold in the 1960's. .....What source did you use to determine the deck is from 1945?
My Dad was a Goodall dealer, and I may possibly have some info in my "stuff."
