It seems mowers are like buses --they come in 3s. No sooner had I acquired an Atco F24 2068 which has been a subject of correspondence on this forum when I was offered a similar for spares. It however is in better condition than the one I was restoring--a nice dilemma to have.. I then found a real 'project' Atco mower with the tag 4520 which would imply 20" built in 1945. It certainly looks its age if it is genuine and will keep me busy during this second lockdown (Aberdeen). .
Herein lies the rub. I can find nothing online on this model. It is 20" cut with flat handles and a bar clutch. It has a 4stroke? villiers engine and as far as I can make out the number on the plate is 3518 559(8?)87. It has a pepperpot exhaust and an Amal 379 carb. It has an 18mm spark plug. No kick start only a pulley for a loose cord. See photos. Could it be a hybrid?
Any help would be much appreciated. Already I see parts of the carb. which will need to be sourced so any suggestions for this and other spares would be welcome.
