I got this from a co-worker.He had told me about it and had been setting under his grandfathers back porch since he was a kid.This is the photo he sent me originally.

 I got it home and figured out what it was and since it did not have a hood or fenders i took it upon my self to try to make something out of what i had.The tins was all i think was missing.I am not sure about the engine being

original but i had an 8 horse electic start engine i bolted down.Changed  two of the three belts and made a color sample match to the original paint i found on the frame.

Do you happen to know the model #?  If yours is a Model 26, I have an exploded parts view and list plus service instructions for the 1957 model.  The rear fenders are slightly different than what you have, but everything else looks the same.

Thanks a lot ,mine had a briggs on it and was dated 1960,so i do not know if it had the right engine or they made in 1960 with a briggs but everything else is an identical match,I was thinking it would be easier to work on if I hoisted the front end up.

  Now I have good pictures of the original tin or fiberglass covering the engine. I have not seen if the original front cover was fiberglass or tin but the fenders were fiberglass from your earlier posting

 If i can get it moving with your help from your Info I will make the correct looking fenders and motor covers out of fiberglass.

Can you load these into the PC Manuals section or do you want me to? We have had issues with links to files in posts getting lost before, so it's best to put the files where they can be found again.
