Just picked up this lawn boy mower yesterday. Was next door to a house I was installing a window in. I thought the old guy was going to mow his yard with it. Then I looked a bit later and it was sitting next to the street with a sign taped to the handle. walked over and it said $15! guy came outand explained that he and the wife were moving to the nursing home cottages in town and he couldnt pull it to start it any more. I paid and loaded it. I dont really care for lawn boys, but I figure someone would want it. It is missing a couple of things but what is there is in pretty good shape. I want to get it running before I get rid of it. Here are the pics:

Those are pretty simple engines to work on and get running. Don't forget to mix the oil and gas together.

I've run lawnboys for over 30 years... 21" gas-oil mix. They last and last..on my second one in all those years... First one still runs..
I don't know about the real old ones,,,But I run 32/ 1 in mine..If it acts like it is short of power,,, check the exhaust ports on the bottom,,under the blade..
