Tell me what I've got - Craftsman Eager-1, pull-lite
Is this an antique? Nothing comes up for parts when I search on the model number:
Perhaps I'm not looking in the right places.
Not much rust underneath. Air cleaner was missing so I replaced it with a newer oblong one that fit easily. Original was round. Water was in gas, but I cleared all that. Starts first pull.
Spark plug faces you, throttle is red lever on the side. 3.5HP Briggs, 20 inch cut. Vibrates some, but blade is balanced. Vibration stops when I put my foot on the engine cover. Check all bolts. Pops once in a while when there's no load on it, but don't think that's a problem.
Oil drain bolt is busted off, so I tipped it on it's side to drain the oil. Slow, but no problem. Briggs serial number shown below. Couldn't find that either.
This is slated to be given away on FreeCycle.com unless it's a worthy antique. Neat old push mower actually. Even have the bag for catching grass. Mower is a mulcher. No side discharge.
