Default New kid in Ohio

Hi, folks - just got signed up here. I've been an "old car guy" for decades, mostly earlier cars 19-teens through 1930's, with some more "modern stuff" along the way. Recently finished (well, almost finished, never really done) an old station wagon, which reinforced to me how valuable forums like this one are to success, with the shared knowledge and experience.

So I finally decided to go through an old lawn mower I've been dragging around with me for years, taking up space. Nothing special or fancy, it's a 1949 Monarch self propelled, with a B&S 5S for power. I actually drug it out of a scrap iron yard about 10-15 years ago, it looked too go to let it be scrapped. Just barely too good. Had to give the guy $3 for it, for its weight!

I know it's not worth anything, but have decided just for the fun of it to restore it and make it run.

Welcome to the Stak. Good luck in your projects . Around here one can dig up most anything and if you ask, Someone will know how to not only fix it they will help you get the right parts to restore it, Because we all like to hear old things run again.

Nope, I've always done vintage Chevys. But I love Model A's too - started out in the hobby with a '31 A (in partnership with my Dad - his money, my enthusiasm) in 1969. Here's an original 1914 Baby Grand I got back on the road recently, after 91 years of storage.

Thanks for all the welcomes!
