this is my dad’s 1/2hp plunket jr. engine running for the first time. took about a half hour to free up, hooked up a buzzcoil and battery, bottle fed it some fuel and spun it over. this engine is serial number 40 so we think it’s pretty early. this engine was set up for illuminating gas from the factory.
Did change the oil, sharpen the blade, clean the air filter replaced the spark plug and gave it a good cleaning. Outside of the oil being very low did not find anything really wrong with it. This lawn mower for the age is in really good shape, he is going to pick this up and give it try!
