**** yeah and ya gotta love scrappers. 8.5 hp Briggs and have seen them advertised for more than double what I paid. If that score wasn't cool enough, I found the rare optional tow bar in a car u-pull-it that has a small mower boneyard. That bit is over $100 new by itself. It needed an oil change, blade sharpening and a tire and only starts cold with a shot of starting fluid. The way old school ball bearing clutch for the recoil starter failed me a few times so I cut it off and went with the ever older school starter - a used pulley and a rope.$60? Wow, that would have been a bargain at twice the price!
facebook marketplace - have made a few nice scores there. This one was only like 5 miles from the house. I was a little concerned that one had a plug - until I discovered the tubes.Very nice! Where did you find those???
