Dad came home Thursday Nite and asked me if i could get any luckier. He had stopped to look at a steering wheel he spotted in a fence row behind a house and it ended up being attached to a weird mower. Guy said I could have it.
It's a model 8469 National Mower
I have lots of work to do on it, and lots of learning to do to, but it's a neat ride.
We cleaned the points, drained the water out of the carb, fished some of the mouse poo out of the cooling fins, took 15 minutes to get the carb adjusting screws unseized and another half our to get air thru the ports...Dad never pulled the carb off the tractor.
Total time from getting back home to this is 2 hours and that includes lunch.
Pics will be soon, have to get them to upload... but here is the vids Dad took. Thanks to Mr Krepps and my Dad.
We did get he other two reels with it, but no time today.
