Default Howdy from the Finger Lakes

Hello all, thought I'd pop in here first and introduce myself. My real name is Ben, and I'm an auto technician in N.Y. I've been into restoring old things for a long time. Mostly I've done Old British Sports cars. Currently I have a 1954 Triumph TR2 that is in pieces, and while finances are tight, It's gonna stay that way. So I by chance got an old Toro Sport lawn Reel mower with a 5S motor on it, from a friend of mine. I had a fun (and cheap) time researching all the info, taking it apart, sand blasting all the bits, painting it ,rebuilding and adjusting all the moving assemblies.And now I have a great running antique mower.It was enjoyable enough that I just bought another old piece of equipment with a small engine and decided I really need to join a support group before this get's out of hand. hehehe. SO here I am with lots of newbie questions, rearing to learn all I can about these fascinating old pieces of machinery.
Cheers
