So I stumbled across what I think is a really good deal. I saw on craigslist ad for a David Bradley walk behind with plow, snow plow, and mower. 10hp engine. Hasn't been run in a while. $100

So I see The 10 hp engine part and think to myself, "I already know it's not the original engine, but what the heck,. It has three attachments and is $100."

The model number is 917 –5752 serial 257.

id just go get it, any small engine cant be bolted up to make it work. cant think the 10hp is going to make front heavy and awkward to use.

Finally got to a computer!  Phone just doesn't cut it :)

 

Yes, I went and picked it up straight away.  It was a good 1hr 40min drive 1-way.  The attachments alone would have been worth it.  Came home from a night shift, slept 4hrs and grabbed my dad to go with me.

 

So....  Model: 917–5752 serial: 257.... When I say it had a 10hp on it, and seeing the old picture of the man's wife with it, I wondered if this would be a Super 600 etc. thinking perhaps it was a bigger one someone had put an even bigger engine on.  This is not the case, given the model #.  I currently have a 917-5751 and have picked up a Briggs-n to put back on it (It has a slightly newer 60's 1.6-2hp briggs engine)

 

Can anyone tell me if leaving this 10hp briggs on it will hurt anything?  My guess is the clutch/ transmission isn't designed for it.

 

I say this because, correct me if I'm wrong, the 5752 is the same as the 5751, just a year or 2 newer, yes? It should have come with a Briggs-n or a 6s. so closer to the 2hp.

Yes, I would be lost without that website!

 

Again, darn phone.  Tiny screen.  Somehow I missed the 5752 and only saw 5751!

The Reel mower is actually pretty sharp.  It still has the service tag from Sears on it from just before it was parked.

Update: 

 

This Briggs model: 243431 had been sitting in a shed for the past 25 years.  Hasn't run in 26.

 

Yuge! mouse nest was removed, Fuel tank removed and cleaned, replaced the magneto, buffed the flywheel...!  Spark!.... No compression.  Removed the head and freed up the stuck exhaust valve.  

 

The sediment bowl full of lacquer and I put it in a sonicator... Like brandy new!

 

Had been soaking the carb with seafoam for a few months. She fired up and after a few min idled right out.

 

I'll get some more pictures going after a little while.

I've got one of them aallmossst going.  Little intermittent spark. possible condenser.  Just need a little more free time, then I'll drop the ol' Model N on my 5751

 

I've recently picked up a speed changer.  Can't wait to play with that a little  :D
