Default New member from Georgia saying hi.

I'm not into this stuff as much as you guy are just yet. I just bought my first old piece. Old to me that is. It's a RUGG motorized reel mower that I found interesting while visiting a friend. But I have to tell you guys. I'm not the smartest person because I did something not to bright. I jumped in and started disassembling without taking a picture first. Just like a kid at xmas, I couldn't wait to rip open the gift I gave myself. Kind of kicking myself for that lately. But life goes on.
Anyway, glad to be here and look forward to learning much from you guys.

welcome from another Georgian. Believe the engine is a standard Briggs 5S, should not be hard to get parts and fixed up. 3rd week in August is a nice little show not too far from you in Piedmont/SC if you want to get more acquainted with the old iron. Cheers, Tom
