Welcome to OLMC Forum

I guess the Atco has lost its brass model tag. Looks to be 17 inch?

Two fairly straight forward machines to start off with and by the look of it with fairly decent grass boxes. The main area of concern may be old and corroded ignition coils but perhaps you will have some beginners luck!

Yyes unfortunately it doesn't seem to have its brass model tag and yes its 17in.turns over ok but no spark so a bit of work to do on the mag etc i think.

Haven't had a lot of time to play about with hem yet but both turn over ok but neither have a spark,not sure where where to start regarding the mags
