Careful handling any of the melted/burnt plastic with your bare hands. Some plastics can create harmful chemicals that can be obsorbed through the skin when melted or burnt. I don't know which kinds, so I'd just take precautions.

I have bought a few off E-bay, gotta watch the shipping though. Some won't ship, and some try to make a car payment with their price. The best bet is a complete tractor, they are usually cheaper, but then you have another tractor wanting to get modded. I have bought several tractors for the engines, but I can't seem to part with the rest of the tractor and the collection is getting big enough that storage is an issue.

Either one, I have found running mowers for less than 50 bucks, engines alone are usually more.

I don't worry about brands of mowers, just HP and type of motor. I don,t care if it is a Murray or a off brand, because a 12hp briggs is a 12hp briggs, the only thing I have found is a JD or Cub tend to be more money because of the name regardless of condition!
