I have just been given an Atco lightweight 34" mower and haven't a clue how it all operates???(well it doesnt operate at the moment)
There is the ovbvious throttle control lever and another lever on the other side of the handlebars which I am not sure what this does (I guess this operates the clutch) There is also a metal footpedal that has a cog that engages with the drive from the engine. A villiers engine with a loose cord start and a cylindrical petrol tank. I have a few questions that hopefully somebody knows the answers to. I have pulled it a few times and i can't seem to get a spark (its been been standing in a shed for a long time)...I have changed the spark plug but still no spark does anybody know if there is a cut off switch??? What would people suggest the next step to take to find out why there is no spark??? I am tempted to remove the engine so it makes working on it easier....I see the four bolts holding the engine to the frame is there alot more to be undone to remove the engine??
Thanks in advance for any help & advice
