I think an angle grinder

I think an angle grinder would make lighter work of it :-)

But on a serious note, this maybe useful -> https://www.oldlawnmowerclub.co.uk/sites/default/files/opmanual/Atco%20172055.pdf

And this? -> https://www.ransomspares.co.uk/parts/brands/atco/lawnmowers/balmoral%2017s%20(f016l80602)/

And obviously taking pictures as you go.
