Even a broken clock is right twice a day;-) Herler hit it on the head I think. That mower should fetch double that. Even with pistol grips. Easy carb to service. Probably just a bit of dirt in the needle and seat. Factory fuel filter was 80 micron on those if I remember. They probably picked up some crud, then changed the filter afterward.
