New purchase

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? 

Thanks all

Hello

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

 

Good luck
