Help with restoration
« 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
 

 

If any one has any thing that can help please let me know.

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
