Briggs 6HP Mowers

I was asked to fix a broken shroud mounting hole on the mower for a friend.  Of the six or seven unknown mowers I had on had I found 3 with similar if not identical engines.

I used JB Weld to glue a bolt into the broken out hole from the back forming a stud.   Now it was impossible to put the shroud back on because the recoil started and the stud are at right angles.  I drill the rivets and removed the recoil housing.  This allows one to put the shroud on then bolt the recoil to the shroud.  Need to wait till Monday to find hardware to bolt the recoil to the shroud.  Hoping to find speed nuts.
