good evening all
I've just purchased my first sulfolk mower with the hope to restore and use (remember using when I was a child to mow the lawn at home)
Any help with model identification would be wonderful as I am going to need some parts .
Other question should the engine cowl be red?
Looking at the mower Id guess its early 70s and was named Suffolk Super Colt. Think this would have had a grey 75 cc cast iron engine with the cowling the same colour as the handles . At some point its been fitted with 98 cc aluminium engine complete with throttle lever . By the time the engine was made the mower and cowling would have been painted darker green , about the colour of the clutch cover .
Despite their age the 75 cc engines run smoothly and are more pleasant to use . The website has many photos of these, copy of owners handbooks and parts list . On the front page of the website go to Lawnmowers , then Profiles, then MP072 for brief details
