JP Push Mower Model enquiry request

Hi.

As a new member I am hoping that someone in the club may be able to help me identify the Model Type and hopefully year of manufacture of a JP Mower I bought yesterday. I have attached photos to help? The Cutter and one piece Roller measure 10" in width. 

Will really appreciate any help you can offer.

Regards.

Ransomes Rob (I have an Ajax 5 model)

No problem, Rob.

No problem, Rob. It's a bit of a song and dance effort to upload images to this site, and you're not the first one to encounter difficulty with it.

I think it is a 'minor', the 'maxees' had a lift out cutter unit, it also the wrong colour (aren't they always)

Depending on whether it is a mk1, it should be a darker green, or if it is a mk2, an olive green.

Evening,

Evening,

Looks like a JP Minor Mk2, I believe the Mk1 had a chevron cutting cylinder & rather nice alloy chain cover & ornate alloy casting on opposite side with the word 'Minor'.

Most JP's have a serial number, on this model it may be stamped in to the steel side plates, from this we should be able to determine the exact age.

I do have a copy of the instruction book for the Mk2 if needed.

Me again,  can I just add

Me again,  can I just add that as far as I'm aware the front roller would have had 3 separate sections, I assume the one fitted is an incorrect replacement when it was last restored, the parts list only details the smaller rollers. The only roller mower that springs to mind having a one piece front roller at manufacture is the Ajax Mk1, but please correct me if anyone knows of any others.

An update for those who may

An update for those who may have followed this thread, Rob has found the serial number and we have identified the machine, Its a JP Mini-Mower made in May 1963, he now has copy of instruction book, images of an original mini-mower as below, plus link to the transfers for the mini-mower that the club supplies, note 2 x wooden front rollers separated by a short metal spacer. 

Rob, if you are looking to fully restore the mower, be good to see some images here of the finished project.
