I'm currently reconditioning an Atco B24. I've gone over the Tecumseh H60 motor and after a thorough clean/inspection, plus a new carb, it seems to be running ok.
Alongside the mower I'm also fixing up a matching auto-steer seat. Its got some Atco branding on it, but I don't know any more details on the model, age or manufacturer.
The seat roller is giving me some problems though as the bushings are really rough and I think in need of a good clean and some lubrication.
The roller appears to be two separate pieces on a common shaft, however I cant see any easy way to get it apart any further. The rollers are held on by the wider sections of the shaft.
On close inspection, the wider sections appear to be integral to the shaft rather than separate, tightly fitted spacers/bushings. I could be wrong, but can't be certain without using enough force to damage something if they are one piece.
I also can't rule out there being two separate sections of shaft which press or thread together, but again, its not budging with reasonable force.
I've seen some parts diagrams for these seats (or similar) but the roller/axle appears to be a single unit.
Does anyone know anything more about these seats/rollers and how they may come apart?
Thanks in advance.
