Nice find! the SB's are probably quite rare..
Does it run?

looks very similar to my S224.

The SB did not have spark so I cleaned the points now it has great spark. Changed the oil, I inspected the carb and fuel system and that is spotless. The oil plug had never been removed I don't think and has the original spark plug. All I have to do is add gas and give it a pull, this machine has not been run since 1965.

sscotsman any updates on your s-224? Currently I am building a transmission for a s-262 out of 3 different transmissions. Looking forward for an update on yours.

Do I know that feeling. I have a few complete waiting for rebuild and a couple in the middle. Just need to get off my rear and get one done.

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

S224

Morning...I have a S224 in the garage but the string broke off. Are there any manuals available for this model? i've had a hard time finding one. Also, are replacing the tires on these easy to do and is it worth it?

TY
Cesar
