Title: Help with restoration
Post by: Lorenzo on November 14, 2014, 03:04:50 PM
I am restoring my dads mower.  Its a Swisher Ride King model R-32 with a Tecumseh motor.
It looks like this picture I took off the WWW

Can you help us out with what the problems are? Maybe like what parts you need?

How about a picture of what you have now? We look forward to the restoration as it moves along.

I have worked with outdoor power equipment since 1975 and have never seen anything like that. Swisher is still around, Tecumseh is not but parts are still available.

Sorry I can't help with the parts, but I always wanted one of those, cool little mowers for sure and looking forward to see how your project turns out!

thanks guys. I am slowly finding odds and ends but was just wondering if the picture would jog some ones memory and come up with a complete one that is sitting around I could get for parts.
Found one in SE Mo and three in a junk yard so I will do the best I can and post some pictures as it comes back to life
