Just got her yesterday, all original down to the mesh wire air cleaner. The only major part of paint loss is below the carb, it has a bad needle and seat. Other than that, the three rings and the piston are shiny and she runs smooth. Let the pictures tell the story.

Yeah, it says to keep your hands and feet from under the deck :)

The French writing makes me wonder, was this lawnboy destined to be a Canadian lawnboy at some time?

lol @ the French

Thats a sweet mower. I really hope to find one like that some day. How did you locate yours?

b/c of the french, it was likely meant for the Canadian market, or it was actually sold in Canada and ended up in the US. You are close enough to Canada that the latter is likely.

I have a gold bricktop also w/ french on it. Ofcourse, I'm in Canada.

I found this one on Craigslist, the guy said it ran but only if you pushed it back and forth. Sounds good to me COOP, Who knows the places this mower has seen, it could have been in Canada in it's earlier years for all I know.

EDIT, mines a 3052, and now I found out she needs an oil seal, leaking oil on the crank. Looks like I'll have to take the engine off the deck.
