Picked up a Hahn Eclipse for $3 and an Eclipse Rocket for $5 at a sale today, Not too bad considering the Hahn is now running and ready to cut grass already. The Eclipse is a different story. It has a Briggs and Stratton Model 5S engine but it has a stuck valve. So now its currently soaking in Diesel Fuel to try and free it up. Serial Number on it is 52888 so i believe that makes it a 1949.

So I finally got the Briggs motor running on the reel mower. Runs good but it smokes a lot.

Put the engine back on the eclipse this evening. It actually mows really well once everything got oiled and free.
