Looks like the new-in-box engine I have, an SP-C42, belongs on an Automower. Best I can tell, it would be a model 8210A, around 1959 or 1960? If anyone owns one of these mowers, I have your new replacement engine. If nobody wants this for its proper purpose, I'm gonna go ahead and cannibalize what I need for my 1964 Buttercup. So if this engine is the right one for your mower, speak up if you want it. Otherwise, it's an organ donor. :thanku:

You have an Automower? All I want is the engine to go to a mower that needs it to be all original. I need a cylinder, piston, rings, conn rod and bearings for my Buttercup model 3002 Serial number 4900550. Of course, looking in the charts, there is no such thing as a 1964 Model 3002 Buttercup. And there it sits, in my garage. The cylinder, piston and so forth I took off couldn't be original, with a 2.375" bore. I'm going to take the piston part number and see where that takes me...

Hmm, the lookup tables provided here don't show a 3002 until 1967... glad to see there's other sources that do show a 1964.

By the part numbers I took off my piston and cylinder, the Buttercup had a D400 top end on it. Sadly, mine are scuffed beyond reuse. So I have to find new ones. Piston I took out is 604099, cylinder is 678106, rod is 677924-6. I can find a piston kit for about 40 bucks. No luck so far on a cylinder.

I have two 8020's. Which are D-400's but I'm looking at this as a way to use the crankcase. If you want to rid the crankcase pm me because this is not the forum to discuss trades/sales etc.:trink39:

I believe that crankcase will cross with my d-400 lower belt drives.

It's all good, Indy. I just wanted to make sure there's no one out there with an Automower that could use the engine for its originally intended purpose. That said, with no Automower owners speaking up except Shawn, if Shawn wants to pass I will use what parts I can to breathe new life into the Buttercup with it.

And when you are all finished with whats left, I assume the crankcase. Give me a buzz and I'll try to buy it or swap you something for it. O.K?

No hurry on that tho.

Sorry, it's just a short block. No shroud.
