Ok here is my first lawn boy. It has the staggered deck, commercial wheels, and a BBC! Model 6262. I put new fuel lines and an inline filter. I am in the prosses of tear down and re-paint. More pictures to follow.
I had one of those when I had my rental business that a customer left behind because it needed too much work. Over a winter I got it running, and I must say, what a nice machine it was. Kept it to cut the "back 40" around the property. Sometimes I wonder if I should have held on to it, but at least it went for $200 when I sold it.
Correct, Grabber Green, it's available from rustoleum and I think Duplicolor, but we don't have it around here. That's the deck color, for that model.
I suppose the purists would not change any colors, like painting the engine shroud something other than what it should be. But it's your mower... Decal looks in good shape, from what I can tell by the pic. I hope you taped it off and saved it?
On a side note, there's a guy with that has that exact engine for sale on Ebay, new in the box old stock. Think he was asking like $600 for one. haha.
The bolt on the muffler nearest the exaust port, what is the bolt size? Thanks, havent got much done on it, but am looking for a another deck because this one is cracked and a carb. Found this going to pick it up this weekend http://cleveland.craigslist.org/grd/2017159917.html
