The guy I got them from said he has had them for over 20 years and the Y only ran once or twice. The F series he never heard run. I got both of them on Monday and Tuesday got the Y running and Wednesday got the F series running. I had to fill both with oil. Filed the points and added gas. Both needed some carb adjustments but I think they both sound pretty good.

Really nice MotoMower FH. That runs great Mike. Looks like it may be missing the thick gasket behind the crankcase vent. Congratulations on
a nice find.

Thank you Everett.

The breather is broken, but I think I have a line on a replacement one.

The base on this one has 2 holes on each ear instead of just one hole.
