Another help identifying a Craftsman thread.
This was slathered with black paint and spray bombed with Kentucky Krome but they masked off the sticker on the bucket which just says Craftsman Twenty Four. Couldn't find any visible tags last night and it looks like the engine has been swapped. It has an H60 on it without the Craftsman serial and model numbers typical of Sears OPE. I did find a Tecumseh in the same garage that may have been the original with the 143.xxxxxxx coding on it but forgot to write the numbers down.
There's just one thing I'll guarantee , the best things in life, they sure AIN'T FREE !!
