Have you looked at just replacing the motor with one of the clone engines? They have a 3 hp for 99 bucks.

And take all the "fun" out of it. I don't need an edger, and my Daughter want's to try and mow her yard with it. Either way the challenge is on. I'll check to see if the seals are available. Should be less than what I was going to sink into it.

Simple little engines, don't let it get you, just about all parts are still available.

Thanks, got a good "yuk" from the comments. I sourced the seals, 4.79 each at partstree. I may still go full blown with paint and trim once I get the mechanical sorted out. 

 

 I guess something like this shouldn't have survived either, but as you said, I'm Persistent. <-- Had to use three Spell checkers to get this right.

Yea, I saw my "cap" today for a new one it's around $250.00, I'm at $60.00 right now, and that counts the two back tires, points kit, air filter, blade and belt. Not a lot left to replace.

Well when you get all the parts replaced you will have a new one.

2 hp Briggs 60102-0304-01 7009. Surprised I can still get parts for a 44 year old 2 hp.

Ah, i meant the tractor, sorry, should of directed, pills starting to get to my head.

 

Yeah, Briggs and Winnie is about the last two left still suppliying the parts, the larger cast iron, not so much anymore but the 83602, 60102 to the 13000 series 5 hp, parts still around.

 

I have a 60102 sitting in the barn, just like yours but bronze paint, good little engines.

Seals X2 are on order, Shipping and Tax was more than the Seals :wallbanging: And go figure, they are coming from Partstree in Austin TX, I bet I could have drove there and back for less than the $7.95 standard shipping.

Replaced the seal, ruined a small flat tip screwdriver removing the old seal. New one went on with out a hitch. Used a pvc pipe to set it.  

Looks like it is done. Daughter is questioning using this to cut her yard. I may try and sell it and pick up a Pawn Shop mower to fix for her.

Well the little edger came home, well abused :( . I don't know the story, but here is the damage. 

Rope was only 25 - 30 inches and was obviously broke and a attempt at re using.

Coil start spring has snapped at the connection point on the starter pulley, and looks twisted back around. 

And I don't know how the large holes were made in the grass screen.

 

I will be looking for parts for this, I can't give up on the little guy.

Instead of waiting I had a thought (or an Idea) that will probably make you cringe, laugh, groan, and think "really" but any how..... I have three huge stumps that I am truing to get rid of so I remembered a suggestion (not from this site) to put a saw blade on it and see how that works. Well first I needed a way to get it running so I popped a hole in the cover and made a "drill starter: (WIN) it works great. Then I added the saw blade (FAIL) most I could cut was 4" saplings. I'll have a video shortly. Well I resorted to burning the stumps. Started with one, and it looked promising so I just now torched the other two.
