James Catlin's restored B1 -- see his comments below, and check out the closeups on the right...
I acquired this lawnmower 3 yrs ago for free. It was all rust but had a beautiful seat. After much time and labor, not to mention money, here is the finished product. It has a 10 Briggs, but I have the original 19d. Also have a mower deck and snow auger for the front.
I would like to say thanks to all the members who supplied info to help complete this project. Also a special thanks goes to Mark at University Lawn Equipment in Pontiac Michigan.
James, glad to help! It's beautiful -- you should be very proud! Kent
