Picked this up on Saturday. I got it with the sulky and the original hitch setup. It's stuck but I have a parts motor that came with it. Any info?

The operator better hope he is on flat ground with that sulky, rear roller, and slick tires.  :rolling:


All I know is that a lever start Briggs like that is pretty desirable.  I would try to see what is making the current engine stuck before you get too excited and start swapping motors.  Parts are still very accessible for the old small line of cast iron Briggs.

If you can post the numbers stamped into the black & silver tag on the mower platform, as well as the B&S numbers, I should be able to provide some info.


As you probably know, like your Eclipse Speedway, this Parkhound was produced by the Eclipse Mower Company, which was later purchased by the Hahn brothers.


For the old Eclipse reel mowers whose tags are missing, most times the mowers can be identified by the casting numbers of the mower sideframes.

Wow, What a great piece of history you have there. I hope you can keep it all original and get her running. I would love to see a video of you mowing with it. Good Luck and great find.. :thumbs:

Those things can get stuck on a sidewalk.
