We think the b&w photo was taken in 1956 and we are standing in the same order in the color photo.

You did alright. I think I know someone on this forum that would give you $5 just for the air filter.  :D

No governor, hand throttle mounted on shroud and the model numbers also the large horizontal muffler.For more information check the Reo web sites ,when I first got the engine the number would not come up so was unsure of what was going on . http://reoengine.us/ and http://www.reolawnmower.com/ads.html

 

Lots of good information Cheers Mike
