1952 atco light
Hi buddies I have inherited a 1952 Atco light 17” cut mower, but boot it needs a FULL restoration! At the moment I am trying to source a new spark plug for it, champion 8com but up till now no success Any ideas on good Atco spares dealers?
For spark plugs try the Green Plug Co.
You asked about the Champion 8 COM spark plug for your Atco Lightweight.
I have one of these fitted to my Lightweight; here are a couple of pictures.
As you can see, it’s an 18mm dismantlable plug with one electrode. I can imagine that Champion has not produced this model plug for many years now and the best you will do is to find a NOS one via the internet, most likely through eBay.
The last one I bought was at an autojumble, it was used and I believe I paid £5 for it. The benefit of these dismantlable plugs is that they can be thoroughly cleaned, preferably shotblasted, such that they are then virtually as good as new.
I have two spares; I really don’t need both so if you’re unable to readily obtain one you’re welcome to one of these.
Well I responded to this request by writing direct to the email address but surprisingly never did receive a reply.
Hi there UTC,
I never did see your email, but just last week I managed to find a new old com8 on eBay, so once again ty for your guidance.
