    551 almost done

    Thanks for the info Jake, I do have a tecumseh that im rebuiling but i will also keep my eye out for a lauson 5.5 i see them every now an again on craigslist. i would also like to make it an electric start at some point, i can with the tecumseh but its the plug in type i would prefer battery start.

    Thanks guys, and i must agree the honda is less of a nut roaster. i also like the red seat but im gonna have to go with the almond if thats the color its supposed to be. can any one tell me wich motor came with these origonally? When i bought it it had a tecumseh h70 that i beleive is a snow blower engine. ive seen some with a lauson 5.5 and others with kholers or tecumsehs. The gas tank had a 4 hp sticker on it, was the origonal motor a four hp? I would like to eventually get it back to origonal condition so any info would be greatly appreciated.

    im almost finished restoring my 551, i need to order my stickers and finish rebuilding the motor. im using my honda motor till i can finish the rebuild then ill swap the hood stand with the one i have that hasnt been cut. ill also need to find or fabricate a few items heat sheild, belt gaurd, plow mounting bracket, key switch and choke & throttle. anyway all in good time i guess. Hope you all like it.
