Got to play with the mower a bit more today, installed the missing spring and roll pin on the variable speed selector and cleaned a huge mouse nest out of the cylinder shroud, the pee from the mice ate away all the springs and linkages so will have to source new NOS ones as they are now long NLA from Tecumseh.
Looks like someone also did a homemade job for the reverse disc, no disc is there and looks like they added round flat steel to make a disc, will have to fix that as well.
Engine fired right up with a little TLC , dosent even smoke.
Anyone else have good decals on theirs? I uncovered the PTO one but its rough.
