Information on a Vintage Sears, Roebuck & Co. Reel Mower?

Information on a Vintage Sears, Roebuck & Co. Reel MowerI have a Sears rotary mower I just purchased to restore. It has a brass plate on it with model number 1 2 3. 8161 and I was just wondering how old the mower is and maybe what year it was made, etc. Also I would like to know if there is a certain way to paint it. It has baby blue on the lower part of it and a red handle.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

I have found a manual for an old reel mower from Sears. I know it may not be your mower but in cases like this the information in the book would work to restore your mower and give you a good idea how to sharpen the blade, oil the mower and bring it back up to mint condition. www.worthpoint.com/.../vintage-sears-roebuck-18-inch-1819646675

Here is an excellent forum for you to join that talk about reel mower, how to restore them and the history of different mowers. I can not locate any information on this mower and I'd like to suggest that you visit this forum for some help. I was hoping to find an image of the mower that a person has restored in order to help you reppaint your mower but I was not able to do this one. Here is the link to the forum. www.rcuniverse.com/.../9603955-vintage-craftsman-power-reel...

You did not ask about value so I'm assuming you wish to refurbish your mower for yourself or maybe sell it after refurbished.
It would be nice to find an old manual or even a brochure but these are very difficult to find but occasionally eBay will have one listed for sale (unfortunately Worthpoint only provides information on items and does not have anything for sale.).

You may be able to ask your question on one of the lawn mower forums as they have very knowledgeable members.
I think it is a little unusual that your mower has Sears, Roebuck & Co. and does not have Craftsman.

You will have to join forums to ask your questions.
