Another push mower to add to the fleet

Recommended Posts

Totally unexpected find I had today. In search today of some general parts for my IH Cub Cadet 3323 push mower I stumbled across this mower. This auto parts store had a TON of push mowers, and trimmers, rototillers and other lawn and garden equipment. I was looking for a guy that could help me with parts for the 3323 when I looked over and saw this IH push mower. When I found the guy and talked about parts I asked about the mower and he asked if I wanted it and I asked how much and he said $25. So here it sits with great grandpas mower. 

It’s a 4 cycle Briggs and Stratton engine don’t know the model # thought I did but after some quick research proved me wrong. After I do some general cleaning I think it will be able to run. You can pull the rope and it sounds like it wants to go😁

Here’s a few pics. The first is how I found it. The second is not calendar quality obviously.

Very nice. I did not know IH made push mowers. $25 is a steal for a colectable item like that.

Looks Good! I have a little 19" IH "Lawnboy" similar to yours but either a little older, or a little newer. It just quit one day many years ago, I think no spark!? I'll be will be watching your thread to see how you are doing on finding parts. Thanks for the pictures! I'll take a picture of mine next February when I get the hay fed out of the barn!!!!

The one on the left is lawnboy built just rebadged and different paint scheme for IH. I’m not sure if IH built the other one.

I may just use this thread to show some pics of fix up of the mower on the right.

Dads mower from around 78 or 79 is white  all the way through. Here is the cordless weed trimmer. There is even a electric ride on mower here

When I told you I had a CC mower that wasn't lawn boy, that was it! Mine had a little self propel control panel, but otherwise identical.

So since it’s identical to mine would you happen to remember the model number? I don’t have a serial plate on mine and I would just like the know what model it is.

That mower you have would be cool to have. That looks to have the same engine as mine except yours had a different oil fill. 

If that riding mower is electric and is white and black my guess is that it’s a # 55,75,85,or 95 but I could be wrong 

 

On another note I made progress on the mower. Cleaned a few things and it started up on the second pull!!😁 I’ll post pics when I have more time (whenever that will be)😂😂

Back on Wednesday I did things such as adjusting the handle and throttle cable to my preference. Then I had an issue with the throttle cable (my own doing) and so I fixed that and also superglued a crack that was on the side of the throttle quadrant.

Yesterday I got a new air filter and spring for the throttle. Cleaned a few parts as well as the outside of the engine (I did as much as I could without taking anything apart) then put some gas in it and it started right up. Still have some things to put back together on it and I will take a closer look at the blade and clean the deck.

As for the other mower (3323) yesterday I took the carb apart and put that in the parts washer to soak. So when I get it back together I’ll spray some carb and choke cleaner in it to see if it wants to go.

Dale, put that dipstick in a safe place. I had a heck of a time trying to find one of those about 15 years ago, for a '79 LNT9000.
