    You do all that but reuse the old float that’s notoriously known for leaks compared to the new plastic version.

    Where exactly would someone source a vintage carburetor rebuild kit, seals, rods and pistons from the 1960's? I'm sure he had those lying around for just such an occasion.

    Hi, This is a great effort! I would not have wasted all the money spent on Powder coating! Powder coat is for indoor stuff like file cabinets and tool box's. When it gets messed up you have to do a lot more work to fix it!. Polyurethane paint is a much better choice for outdoor equipment and is much easy to maintain. It also cost's much less! I have pained mini bikes to airplanes and almost every thing in between. I wish this person good luck with mower! I love when someone fix's something old instead of throwing it away! If we throw everything we make away. We teach are kids everything is garbage. I do not think that is a good thing to teach to my grandkids or your children either! That mower is a functional piece of Mechanical Art! It started as a piece of junk that most people would have sent to the scrap yard. This person made it Mechanical Art and Visual Art by making a YouYube video of it. Thank you all who endeavor to reuse those things that can be!!

    I really love this mower but it bugs me a little that you chose to use a plastic fuel petcock and fuel line... and nylon licking nuts. But other than that it's pleasure watching someone so thorough do what you do, sir.

    Replacing all what you did but not the ignition system? Frankly I'm surprised you found any replacement parts for something that old. I would have expected more considering the SR-71 was built about the same time. Technology was not the issue.

    I have an old mower similar to that I will start restoring. Not sure where I'm going to get the specialized tools, but I guess I'll figure that out as I go...
