I dont want to be that new guy asking for help immediatly, but.........
OK I'm John just acquired my first vintage lawnmower.
Basically my Qualcast push along stopped working last week so I had a look and was shocked to find the cogs connecting the wheels to the blade were plastic ! and Stripped!
So after Screwfix luckily being out of stock of the Webb push along, I was browsing fleabay and bought a JP Maxees Mk3, which while it cuts of a fashion, most certainly does not pass the paper test and is more ripping grass than cutting.
I intend to re-build it but for now just need a lawnmower I can use so while trying to figue out the bottom blade movement, trying to free it up and getting to the point where I want to remove the side to clean and lubricate, I'm stuck not being able to get the blade out.
Have got to the point where I take off the bearing cover, but cannot figure out how to get the side off.
Basically I want to free the bottom blade for adjustment, but as far as I can see rather than pivoting, it seems to slide doen the grass deflector, and I thinink thats where the rust is holding it.
I know someone on here wrote a document of how to strip the mower and re-bulild and I would be so grateful if anyone could help me with such instructions!
My neighbour had to cut out lawn with a flymo and I dont know how much more I can take!!!
Thanks so much
