Good evening all.
The Webb deluxe 2 speed, my newest addition, brought down to me in Clevedon, from London by the lovely seller who was passing on way to Devon (yep, result!!) the 2 speed has had a bit of forum action of late, with Ransomes Rob acquiring his from the late Dave Stamford collection, thought I'd add another, although no images yet as it arrived dismantled and haven't put it together, I can see its a Cracker, some rust repelling paint on the cylinder and close quarters of it is a bit of a mess, but otherwise complete with grassbox, (some may have seen it on Ebay a couple of weeks ago) plastic front rollers need to be changed for wooden ones I believe, although apart from Robs deluxe, images on Google all seem to be plastic, can somebody confirm please. As for the 2 speed transfer box, it's very smooth, maybe too smooth, no definite notch between gearings, is this OK. I expect on use it may try and move across by itself its that loose. There was a wedge of timber by side of gear lever I removed, must be the case, duuh, will need to investigate that when I get to it. It rolls nice, ratchet gear on rear roller sounds lovely, apart from front roller, and the removal of the horrid rust paint, I'll leave well alone as its pretty nice as is condition wise. Day off tomorrow so I'll assemble, give it a go on the lawn and see how she does, and have a little photo shoot to add to thread.
