day 1 of tear down
Wish my dad would have done things with me like that. Remember those memories!
cant wait to see more pics!!! I'm going to restore a walk behind when i get time.. You got a little helper now!!!
day 2 taking off the pulleys cleaning everything up and getting ready for paint. made a paint booth in the garage with heat, due to the cold weather. we spent a hour straightening the rods that go from the handles to the pulleys. so far nothing needs to be replaced, good for the check book.
Looks like fun man! My dad and i just brought back a 99' vw passat just for fun!
Looks just like my first mower!
You won't.....I had one a while back when I was starting out and wanted to fix it up just a little and parts are near impossible to find, especially paint and decals.
day3 got pulleys and spindles off. took spindles apart and are solid so no need to do anything except grease them. my son is learning alot and and is already figuring things out by himself like all you need is a 1/2'' and 9/16'' to take this mower apart. heck i didn't figure that out until he said something. we decides to change the paint scheme alittle bit. deck lid and wheels are going to be black instead of green deck lid and white tires. Think it will pretty kool being straight black/green. going to pull engine tonight hopefuly
Those lesco machines look real solid.
im pretty impressed on this machine, plus how well it has held up for 20+ years. she gonna look pretty!!!
The older ones are much better than new
