Did a little more work on the mower since all is well with it (keeping fingers crossed).  I did an oil change and a cosmetic clean-up leaving it in great condition to put to work.

Just another quick update.  Grabbed this machine, set the throttle and it roared to life on the first pull.  It definitely has good compression and ran like a top.  Other than figuring out the best place to set the throttle on a warm start it is great.  

 

Again, thanks to all for your help and to Brian for his help with parts.   :thumbs:

Used this machine again yesterday and it worked great other than it is hard to start when it is hot.  Not sure what it is but once it is going it runs great and does not skip a beat.
