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:DSCF5361.JPG DSCF5362.JPG

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..
