    Hey guys i have an early ninetys lesco mower with a 14 horse kohler command series on it. motor needs push rod and head gasket because i pulled the head off to inspect the piston and valve assembly. Is this worth fixing for a backup mower? Mower is missing total middle spindle assembly, all belts need replaced on deck, and engine needs push rod and head gasket and a few other little gaskets due to parts removal. Worth it or no? Tell me your horror stories of the lesco mowers. Haha thanks guys any and all info is appreciated.

    I had a Lesco 52 wb. replace the engine. Small Engine Ware house. They had an ad in Turf 14 Vanguard, 500 W
    free shipping. the spindle 75-100. $ 50-75 for belts. Search
    for a complete machine. Depends on how old the deck is.
    My 52 was a 97. The deck is similiar to my Scag. Ed
