I have just acquired a Suffolk punch mower, with the hope of rebuilding it. Photo attached all help will be appreciated as this is a learning curve.
Thanks in appreciation
Welcome to the Club. Looks as though your newly acquired machine may have an alignment issue with the centrifugal clutch!
Thanks l will strip it down and have a look ,as I said first time on this but will keep going .All help appreciated.
Most of what prompted my remark can be dealt with without dismantling. Perhaps moving the clutch a little away from the engine and slackening the engine mounting bolts to allow it to be moved into alignment with the clutch drum - then re- tightening!
That said, by all means "strip it down", the best way to learn but take plenty of images along the way for reference.
Much appreciated, will see what I can learn
