    Hello everyone i'm new to the forum, i'm looking for a front wheel to fit my 1958 21 inch gold brick top lawn boy model 7150 with crank start handle, the guy across the road sold his parents house and cleaned out the garage, i helped him carry out a few things so he gave me his fathers lawn boy, i was told it hasn't been used since the 1970's. i cranked up the mower handle then flipped the handle over and pushed it down and it spun the blade several times, i cant start it at this time because our weather is below freezing. it would be nice to complete this mower with the proper front wheel and get it running again, it looks to be completely original, if any one knows what mixture of fuel i should use please help. Thanks

    Are the other wheels gold color? I may have one I think 6 inch on the front used. It may not be gold you would have to paint. What area are you in?

    Thanks for getting back to me, i checked the other wheels and i was wrong, they are white with a bit of rust to tint them (dark storage) the other front wheel is 6 inches also, i'm located in Ottawa Ontario Canada, i know its far to send them but i'm willing to pay the mailing charge, if you could do this i would really appreciate it, i plan on using it this summer, my wife just fought cancer for the third time and is not as strong and she used to be, she loves to cut the lawn but has issue's pulling the cord on the modern lawn mower so with this one all she has to do is crank the handle flip it over and push down. let me know how much you want for the wheel and shipping and how you want me to pay.

    I am sorry for taking so long. But your engine is either a c12 or c13 which is a 3 ring piston which back in 1958 they called for 16-1 ratio. But some people run 32-1 because the 2 cycle oil is much better than it was back in the day. I do not mow with my c series engines so I use 32-1 but I also use non ethanol gas. Hope that helps. Mike
