Thought I would share another restore dad did. This one from a neighbor kid, he pushed what was left of it here!

Kid took it ALL apart and was a mess! The engine bolts came loose and three were broken off in engine and body holes were all elongated. Dad had a ton of work. He got the engine bolts removed and got engine to run on bench. We replaced the belt for trans while no engine. Ordered a ton of parts that were missing. Repaint and a lot of work later!! This one was one of the nicest ones, dad wanted to keep it!

Nice little mower and a great job on the restoration. I've seen a few of them for sale here but have never been tempted due to not having a lawn to mow.

Thanks guys, we have had quite a few STX'es here. I have one we got for free on CL that needs paint! Only reason guy gave it away turned out to be a collapsed fuel line! Runs good right out of box after new fuel line. It is mechanically fine now, frozen stuck in metal shed now, I can't get doors open due to three" of ice! :(
