Summertime!

May
25

I hope everyone's mowers are running good. If you're running a motor that I did for you and there's issues get in contact with me. I haven't heard anything from anyone since I started doing this so I must be doing something right. Regardless let me know how they are running. I will be suspending any motor building for this summer until I get my shop restocked. I'm low on parts and need to procure more factory inventory. I'll start building again this fall/winter. My current project is also on hold due to being extremely busy this spring and a few other issues.

Today’s parts haul

May
19

Picked up this NOS lower grass deflector for my 21 inch a Professional. I then checked out a Craig’s List ad for a minty rear grass catcher. I passed on that one but the seller had a stock of Sensation catchers. After rooting through them, I landed this beauty! A little elbow grease and she’ll be goos as new!

Mowers For Sale.

Apr
20

Up for sale are 3 mowers. The green one is all original residential used mower from 1976. I put a new standard exhaust valve in, new gaskets, new carb diaphram, new plug, oil. Runs very nice and smooth. Smokes a little at start-up otherwise is a great machine. Many years left on it. I'd like 250 for it. The orange fixed handle mower is a mower I built form the ground up a few years ago for a lady... It has the primer bulb carb for easy starts, runs very very good and smooth.

Another collector whose machines feature a true to original restoration quality, is Tommy. Using all brand new old stock factory parts and professional color-matched paint, his mowers are literally factory new. He promises several of these mowers to hit the scene this summer.

One of the most ardent Sensation mower collectors is also one of the most elusive here. Leigh has been active in the community since 2006. He has met with me on many occasions for advice, service and parts. The level of detail in his machines are unsurpassed. It often takes him YEARS to complete one machine. He even has the bolts powdercoated!. He may not post a lot here, but he's always on and contributing on the front lines.

In case I ever get accused of posting the same factory spec'd 110908 over and over. Here's two side by side from this winter. One for a project and one for a member!. Complete Sensation factory spec'd 4hp. You don't see this often. Keep in mind I have another very special super secret project in the works with another 110908 Sensation spec'd motor already underway!!!

Here's a mower from one of our Arizona brethren Waymond. I did a copper colored motor for his blue deck. Reports starts first pull and runs great!

Update 2018

Jan
20

I haven't been contributing much lately. It's been a very busy winter so far. I am doing quite a bit in the shop though. Several motors and a new crazy build-up for the summer. The best one ever! Most of you all text me now and for those who have my number can continue to do so. This summer I'm hoping to be extremely active here. Feel free to post stuff. This is YOUR website. Regards!

Crankshaft guards

Sep

Here is a photo of two crankshaft guards. Note they are identical except that the early Sensation one has Ralston Nebraska stamped on it while the Gilson Sensation has the town blanked out. Almost like the tooling was ground to remove the town. I thought it was pretty neat.
