That is an interesting mower. Doesn't look to have any extra shields on it. Nice find.

Ryan, I knew you were getting it and I'm glad to hear you like it. :thumbs: It's going to make quick work of Grand paw's place for sure. Just be very careful, it will trim your nails faster then you can blink!!

Ryan has been working pretty hard at getting the yard at the house back in shape (between atmospheric issues and time, we've been having trouble keeping up...) so, today I told him we would work on the National Mower.  We got the third reel mower on... Ryan got the throttle cable freed up... We did a little more external cleaning of the carb, tightened the belts from the engine.

 

Things left to do: reline the clutch, weld up some broken weld on the wing brackets, take as much slop out all the lifts, steering and brackets as we can, replace the whooped tin on the engine (mouse pee has rotted a lot of it out) and find another gas can.

 

It sure deserves a restoration, but it will have to wait, there are other tractors in the que already.

 

I will add in a couple of videos to this post after they load.

Wow.  I can barely see the tractor through all the grass clippings flying.

That is one cutting beast. :rocker2:

I was amazed at how that little worn out 9 horse would cut 4" grass 7' wide.
If it wasnt for the clutch, he would probably still be playing.

We did all the stuff that HAD to be done at the farm today and a couple of things that didnt... That left us an hour to try to reline that clutch and see what we could do with the loss of spark. The clutch went well, the spark was found and the fittings all took grease.

1 hour and 15 minutes, it was ready to fire up.

A few minutes after the first vroom, he was mowing. :thumbs:

...the spark was found....

 

Congratulations.

 

Where did you find the spark?  Did it roll under the work bench again?

Funny, that... The spark wasnt under the bench, but it Ended up in my thumb some how. Or at least that's where I first noticed it.
