Yes it looks identical to your machine. With a few small differences.

Bibby's machine looks just like mine, too. In fact, I even see my vehicle in the background.  :D :D :D

There is a black arm on side opposite the engine between the 2 upper roller bearings on yours, but not on mine.

That's actually a pair of levers for undoing the blade collars. They hang on the side of the machine on a couple of pins.

Thanks for the offer, but edger is not for sale. It is at the moment completely dismantaled and going under the gun of the sand blaster. Well thats what I thought, until my compressor decided it was time for retirement, the pump took a dump. I looked at one from Harbor Freight it's a v-twin model # 93786 rated for a 5 horse motor. I know when you "buy cheap you get cheap" but at a $149.00, and if it lasts me through the project I think it might be a worthwhile investment. Thats some of the chances we all have to take with the economy the way it is right know.

Anyone have any other suggestions on a compressor pump? Or would that be a good choice?
I was told Eaton has some compairable in that price range and  supposidly to be made in the GOOD OL USA with a 5 year warranty.
thanks, Leon

I know this is an old, old thread.  I'm a newbie here, but I have been combing internet looking for anyone who has the Harbor Freight 93786 compressor pump either for sale or in need for the valves.  I was able to replicate this part that is no longer available from Harbor Freight out of stainless steel.  I'd either like to buy this compressor or if someone needs a set of valves, I'd be willing to exchange a set of 4 for some really good pictures of the insides and the repair job itself.  

I posted here because I see "snowmobile95" has this compressor and maybe he could help me even though this thread is 7 years old.  I'm available to be emailed at:  moc.enecirtaeb@tnelis if you type that in backwards.

Thanks for the help.  Keep my email address handy if you need valves for this compressor and get in touch with me.  I should be able to help you keep that old compressor going for a few more years.
