I have recently acquired a Hayter Ambassador 2 with a 3hp Briggs & Stratton engine. It has a lever clutch for the drive and also a lever for the cutting cylinder both on the handle bars. It was a non runner when purchased but now it runs well without having to spend any money. The carburettor and fuel tank needed cleaning and the points and spark plug needed setting. I have today cut the lawn with it for the first time and after getting the cut height adjusted did an excellent job.
My only concern is I noticed that only the right hand side rear roller (standing behind the mower) is supplying the drive which results in the mower loosing traction and wheel spinning in the same spot until I give it a helping hand. Should both rear rollers supply drive? And if so can this be fixed! Or is it doomed and I have purchased a clanger!
Any help with this will be greatly appreciated.
