A few weeks ago an elderly uncle passed away.To pass time, he played with lawn mowers.He actually got me started, 30 years ago, while on crutches, I needed something to do and he brought me a truck load of small engine stuff to play with.Over the years, we've traded parts occasionally. My aunt called and asked me to clean out the yard. She thought he would want me to have the stuff.Had to take a yellow one with me to drag the others around :D:D

That would be my wife's baby. The rear rims on the Allis are 4 wheeler rims. Found them at a swap meet. Center hole is a tad small for the differential side hub, but a little grinding made it fit. ;)

Turns out 2 run as is. 1 of those needs a muffler.

2 more ran with jump starts so they need batteries and one of those moves slowly so gotta check into that.

The blower with engine runs but needs carb clean and a muffler.

Push mower ran once, but won't start again, so I gotta go thru that carb too.

Haven't looked at the parts yet, and my wife packed them up so I have no idea what's in there.

So far, I think the 3 Craftsman's will be available for cheap "butt buggies" or yard tractors.

The Servicestar with the deck will go as a cheap mower if I can get it to move right.

Other than loosing an uncle to cancer (he was 75 years old) I guess it was an okay load.
