Not the 24.. The 26 and up have the caster wheels... Earlier ones also never had the casters, but that doesnt look to be that old... But it is old..LOLActually, that may not be the factory setup for the front casters. It seems to me, if I remember correctly, they had a swivel type with curved bent rods to hold the wheels. Those type were always quick to wear out on about any mower they were on.
you are right but when they went to the vertical engine they looked like thissawman, I don't know if its a wizard or not but I do know that Yazoo used both vertical and horizontal engines in these mowers.
