I had a LawnBoy 7086 (1978) that I got from my favorite lawnmower scrap dealer. It was missing the saddle-style gas tank that sits on-top of the shroud. I had an old commercial gas tank in my stock of scrap parts. I added this, and outside of the lack of engine guards, it is pretty-much like a Commercial model of the pre-compliance period. The engine was froze up. I got it freed up and replaced the piston and rings, rebuilt the carb, found various missing pieces such as the on/off switch, the primer, and the flywheel plastic guard. It starts on the first pull. Oh, and new wheels too. The old wheels were very wobbly. I didn't spend big bucks looking for LawnBoy wheels, just good servicable wheels from my local hardware store.
