I like to do videos of my updates, I can explain things better. I will do a video in the next couple of days on the work so far.
But I have removed the hood, the wiring harness, the gastank, the battery, and the deck so far.
Deck looks good, it even has new blades, had some problems removing it. The pins were different sizes, and the 16 penny nail had to been straightened first to remove it. the deck does spin, I will work it later.

I always find it kind of interesting to look at all the issues that have been dealt with in the past by PO's, like the nails in your linkages.
Yeah, there have been items in the past that Dad and I saved, that we left some of those modifications in place. "Character" is how we refer to them:D
One of my favorite reuse items is an old clevis that Dad has. You can still see the "teeth" in it as it used to be a file and has been heated and hammered into a U. Making Do Without was how you sometimes had to do it.

And it also has this number tag on it.

The rep. engine would of come with the coil that you have and under the flywheel you should find a magneto coil as well.
The small box is aftermarket points eliminator, why it's there???
The SBH tag is a short block replacement tag, it is quite possible that the original engine was replaced with a replacement engine then when that failed a short block was put in which would of had the coil, magneto, flywheel carb, swapped over.
SBH-237B indicates that it is a 12hp HH engine.
If you look at the flywheel side of the block, lower left hand corner, you will see a #
10 for HH100, 10hp
12 for HH120, 12hp
What does yours say?

I think I have a line on a used carb local.

Also the head has a few fins missing, I was going to replace the head, will a 10 HP fit?
I believe the 10 and 12 heads are the same but the HEAD GASKET is different.
