OLD sears Yard-Man 123.8172 reel mower

I grabbed one from a garage sale for $10 that I'd like to restore this summer. Anyone able to help me find a manual online?

Have any pictures? I have an old sears yard man from 1946 that I would like to sell, but have been too lazy to post it.

I have a Scotts reel mower I use from time to time. I like the perfect cut. But it doesnt have the DF engine on it, so I don't use it very often.

Come on Ted. I'm sure you can find a DF to put on that. That would make "Frankenmower of the Month
