Well, finally gonna take the old girl to a shop and have some things checked out.  Been sitting covered in garage for 3 yrs.  Time to get going on this project.  Hopefully going to get it running real soon.  Then two new rear tires.  I hope to keep the original Clinton VS 1100 engine.  It appears to be sound.  We shall see.  The recoil spring is broken, and needs to be replaced, along with new rope.

Thanks.  I have a gem of a small engine mechanic only 10 miles away.  He is going to convert engine to electronic ignition, and go over the machine for me.  I am somewhat handy with most things, but know my limitations, also.  It is a 1957 model, by the way.

If you want to try to work on them yourself, pickup some junk mowers at the dump and practice on them. Good Luck, Rick

Oh, I can work on them okay.  It is a time and space issue w/ me here.  And as far as the junk mowers go, well, let's just say the boss ,(wife) would have a thing or two to say about that.  And the guy who I am taking it to doesn't rape me at all.  Very reasonable to deal with.

Kool machine!   It looks a lot like my  1959 Springfeild.

Good luck on the resto.    Rick
