Non staggereds look like 4501 utility decks. Nice scores :)

Cool. I see you got some bags too!
What's with That lawn boy utility with angle iron on?
Repair for extreme rust I'm guessing. I haven't even really gotten to take a close look at them other then pulling some cords to see how compression is, one of them is locked up solid.

Looks like a 19 incher at the front of the line there. You can tell because the crescent cutout is rotated more to the right, (Viewed from the handle, 10:00 and 1:00) where the 21 is nearly at the center (9:00 and 12:00.)

Yessir 5249 19". Got it running tonight, mowed with the 8290. Also got the better 4501 running too but both of them have blown out mufflers so it was LOUD

Those can be found on ebay, I'm assuming both of those are aluminum deck.

Edit: not sure what the 8290 muffler looks like, if its the dinner plate style that's hard to come by.

The 4501's with the blown out mufflers are steel deck but there is one on eBay that's not too bad. I could just patch it with the flux core welder though, it couldn't matter less what it looks like.

Unfortunately the piston is pretty scored on what I've been calling the parts 4501 (the one with the angle iron bolted on, the deck is so badly rusted I figure I'll just try to make 1 good one from the 2)

But the "good one" has the gas tank cleaned out, points cleaned and gapped, and the carb cleaned out so when I get this muffler thing sorted it will at least run well (hopefully). The bad part is the deck is pretty rusty on it too and has a pretty bad crack by the handle mount on the right side. You can see the whole thing flex when you try to tip it back with the handle. So I guess I'm gonna buzz down the underside with a knotted wire cup brush and see how bad it is, cut out the damage and weld in a patch. Then I guess I'll paint the underside with chassis saver and I don't know about painting the topside yet.

Luckily the 8290 is the quietest one I have. It is a BBC version so the muffler probably has to be kinda weird to accommodate that.

I'm not sure how long this is gonna last but I'm going to get one off eBay anyway. Definitely quieter

That's what I was thinking.

But this doesn't work, a crappy Oregon air filter for the 4501 that wouldn't spring back after wringing the oil out of it:
