I've come into possession of an Atco '1748' (my understanding - 17" 1948?) but I can find no info on this site or elsewhere..
it has what I believe is the Villiers MK IV C engine, and I will hopefully be able to get it going imminently.
For a 17" it is a large, very heavy machine with enormous metal front rollers.
Does anyone know anything more about it?
An image may help.
Sorted, it's the same machine as on the page copied, with a slightly later engine number of 594/6574. It's by far the heaviest 17" I've ever come across.
Annoyingly (but perhaps not surprisingly) I've diagnosed a duff coil.
Is anyone able to confirm the engine is a Mk 8C of 147cc ?
Member Sir Chook is a fount of information on Atcos. It sometimes helps to drop him an email to bring such posts to his attention.
Here it is in a 1948 leaflet
Thanks very much both, that is indeed the machine and gives the confirmation of engine cc, which is nice.
When ive got it running I'll put it on the lawn and get a photo, it's by no means great condition but is ok and I intend it to be a user
