Good Morning all, I recently (yesterday) bought an Atco reel mower. Paintwork and condition is a bit of a state, but she runs well and after all, it's a summer project...
First off there was no spark, seems some of the wires from the lead to the spark cap were frayed so after a bit of magic and a cut to size picture hanging nail, there is spark.
Clutch and drive all work well, some cables are in need of obvious replacement but nothing too arduous.
I'm finding it tricky to date the mower though, it's certainly pre 80's i'd say, it has a grounding plate for shutting the engine off but apart from that the paintowrk is pretty bad i can't see any signs of serial numbers etc, granted todays job is to go searching for all that stuff. I'd love some help identifying the mower model and also the engine make and size, or if you could point me in the right direction that would be great!
It has a metal clipings basket, and an open top spark plug.
