2416, (as I remember)
Wisconsin engine ??
What do I have?
A newbe here, trying a learn...
I need a carb repair (needle and seat) and the air cleaner.
Bob's Weld Shop, maybe I will luck out....
Pray for me; hoping that my man in Lewisberry is still alive and well. He owns a lawn mower junk yard.
These are places in York County.

Hard to follow...what is the 2416? The Massey MF85 lawn tractor has an 8hp Briggs & Stratton engine. The engine flywheel tin should have the engine model, serial & type stamped into it for getting parts by.

Oh, forgot! LOL Been a while since I had my 85. Parts should be easy enough to get though.

Thanks for the quick replys, gentlemen.
The Wisconsin bit is on the ammeter. The original ignition switch (keyed ??) was replaced with a covered toggle switch, an open tog switch and a push button for the starter solenoid..
She still the original plastic fuel tank(one gal or less), but I need a new cap/gauge.
I also need a new 5 speed "quadrant", there is little left to the original.
The deck has a different color (yellow) and appears to be 36" to 42' , with two blades.
