Here's what I have so far

M #1 "mr. $25"
Good condition, very light fading, almost no chipping, gas tank mounts broken. Recoil is perfect, control panel is excellent, VGC overall.
Runs now. Throttle cable was disconnected. Strong spark, drive works good. Cons: BBC makes a rapping sound when engaging with lots of vibration, Surges, revs very high off load, shift cable is stretched.

m #2 "mr. trashfind"
Paint is good but has chipping/oxidation in a few spots. Generally not as good condition wise
runs better, no surge, smooth runner, bbc works good, strong spark.
Cons Right drive wheel sagging slightly, drive belt broken,

Well so far they both run with about equal power. I'm not sure which one to fix at this point. I'd like to fix the better looking mower first. I'm not sure which one. These things are complex. The extra tank bolt under there was not smart. They should have worked on packaging a little more.

Gear ratios are 1.9mph 2.9mph & 3.7mph for the M. For some strange reason I thought my old 10525 was gear at 5mph in 3rd. I went by and checked and it was geared at 3.6mph.
