Atco Scythe

Hello to All - I have rejoined!


I have just bought on e-bay a two wheeled Atco Sythe which I now have to get from Spalding to near Land's End!  I shall re-build it because I need it in operation a.s.a.p. for a hay field which is supposed to be lawns and ridings - perhaps next year - - 

Question please.  I have a couple of Atco Standards of different widths (for re-build one day - although one starts - or did!) and I presume this 2-stroke scythe will also run on a 16:1 mixture?  Can anyone confirm that, please?  For the record I also have a Dennis which came to grief a few years ago and now needs a full re-build too.  Will I live long enough - at 65, I'm not sure!



Good wishes to all.

Buryan aka Kenneth.
