There was an old lady near me that had one like yours and wanted me to cut her lawn. As a kid of about 12 I couldn't get it running.

It ran pretty well but was scary with that blade spinning around and no cover around it.

I also have a mower like yours mine is a B 29 Gx with an A series engine. It's nice to see another mower like mine and in better shape.

But it is probably just a Carter Model N....
