I have just "restored" another D-engine 19" deck mower. Well, actually it is made up of bits and pieces from 4 other parts mowers. I had a D-433 engine for a couple decades on top of a busted up 21" aluminum deck that I used, I put a new piston and rings, new reeds, all new gaskets, rebuilt carb, new magneto coil, points, condenser. I used the Bricktop shroud from another donor..actually I found the shroud in my junk pile. The flywheel screen and crown nut came from another long lost mower, the Commercial wheels came from the same busted up hulk I took the D-433 block from. The wheels are true commercial wheels with ball bearings and grease zerks. The mower starts up good in 35 degree weather, and mows strong. Also shown in the photos is my previous D-engine mower restoration, this one is a 5083, also a 19" model. Interesting fact, for my current resto, I ordered a used 19" deck for an early "F" engine mower, the deck says model 5247, but the "F" engine block I was going to use, I discovered was not suitable, so I tried the muffler plate from a "D" engine mower and it fit perfectly. So it seems early "F" engine mowers used the same deck configuration as "D" engine mowers.

Looking good! :2th:
Is there aftermarket handle grips available? I think The Commercial King had used them on his.

This is the white PVC material that I used for the handle cover. The seller is showing my photo and using my instruction sheet with my permission and even gives me a shout out on his installation video. Great PVC material is thick and holds up well to use and sunlight. Seller is a member of MTF. Bill


Mowers are looking great!! Nice job of combining a bunch of stuff to make usuable mowers. Bill
