I have acquired an ATCO HD2064 cylinder mower with a 20" cut - I'm assuming that's the model name - it's written on a small brass plaque titled Machine Reference.
It's been sat in my father in laws summer house for many years and hasn't run - so this weekend I set to on it.
First the fule was leaking everywhere - investigation found the cork bung to be at fault - temporarily fixed with rubber.
Fule line cracked and was replaced.
Clutch stuck in drive, now freed
It has a strange plastic on and off swith on the back, not sure if this is original or not - but under investigation, the wire inside it, had been taped up anyway
It still wouldn't start - I've cleaned the plug, but with fule leaked everywhere, I didn't check for a spark
Also it has no grass box - would I be able to get one somewhere? or does anyone have any sort of dimension so I could fabricate on?
I've attached a couple of pics. [correction - I can't find an attach button - will try to put the images on line tonight and link to them] it's basically the one with the petrol tank over the spark plug, then two seperate handles, with a metal plate bar as the clutch lever
Any further info (user manual would be brilliant) on this old beast would be greatly appreciated.
Looks like it'll be a real good mower if I can get it going - REALLY heavy!
