Zephyr Greens 24”

Hi everyone.

I recently found an old zephyr mower at the back of one of our old sheds at our golf course.

It is a Zephyr Greens 24”, but it is missing a gear cog at the end of the shaft running through the cutting cylinder. My question is could anyone tell me where I might find parts for this machine, I would like to restore it to working condition.

Any help or information would be much appreciated.

Welcome to the OLC Forum,

I think you may struggle to find parts for the Zephyr, a parts donor machine may be the way to go. If I remember correctly the missing sprocket is screwed on and has a free wheel built in to it.

Yes Ray, the sprocket bolts on and the teethe are free moving around it’s edge. The one that was on there apparently shattered and has since been lost.

You have probably just discovered the reason why the mower was parked up in the back of the shed!

A google or eBay search for “freewheel sprocket”  brings up lots but some modification will be needed.
