This machine has been reconditioned and is fully operational. The entire mower has been thoroughly cleaned and degreased. The paint on the deck is original and in very good condition for its age. The chrome on the handle is in good condition but does have some pitting. A new starter spring has been installed, as have new reproduction side decals on the shroud. The shroud has some oil staining from mixed fuel.
The engine has been disassembled, decarboned, and reassembled with new crankshaft seals, new PTO gasket and seal, and a new exhaust gasket. The modular carburetor has been disassembled and cleaned. The fuel shutoff valve on the tank seeps slightly in the closed position; replacement parts are not available. The wheels show minimal wear.
