1973 7262 and more junky mowers
My 8270 is frankenstined back together. Carburetor has been rebuilt (2nd time). The starter is gone, springs everytime and doesn’t retract again. Decided to just to use one out of the parts pile, will have to see how it runs after replacement. I will have to get new pins for the rollers but that will have to wait until winter. Very grateful to have found this Lawnboy, not many original capstan mowers for sale anymore. If you can find one you will have pay a pretty penny for one. 8270 should be a good mower once cleaned up a but more and the shroud buffed out.
