challenging Honda HS50 teardown, $100

Looks like this was a town dump pick-up. A challenging rebuild project, but I've seen much worse come back to life.

Aren't replacement parts an issue with these early Honda machines? The paint on the exterior of the bucket, and even on
the engine itself, is really not that bad.

Hartford/Farmington, Connecticut area.

if the drive works , you have a winning project. i have a couple of these with the drive not working. i think it is a broken pin the the right side gearbox. was told the part is obsolete.

been trying to find out if it is possible to repair.

anyway, if you have the time and patience you can probably restore. either restore or buy a real good hs50, they are still a lot around my neck of the woods , and use this one for parts?

either way , it sure sounds like fun. i do it all the time.sold one for $800. working on another right now that looks super good. planning on keeping it for the deck.
