Scott Bonnar/Morrison parts needed

Hello,

Ive recently acquired a 70's Morrison/Scott Bonnar 14 inch reel mower and im on the hunt for a couple of parts.

Looking at the front of the mower, the left reel bearing housing has at some stage broken due to its modification. The other side is a cast iron unit that will never break.

Would anyone have any idea on where i can pick one up? Anyone have one laying around?

Appreciate any help

Cheers

Alex

As you are located in the Scott Bonnar homeland I would think that you are in the best position to find one locally. I presume that there’s an eBay au ?  An image will help, particularly with the Morrison / Ransomes connection as old Ransomes used cast bearing carriers.

Difficult to see but is there actually anything functionally wrong with the “ different” bearing carrier? It appears to be just the later fabricated part.

Any chance of a picture of the entire machine ?

The bearing housings look very similar to Marquis/Auto Certes ones, but a bit hard to tell from a photo without something to scale against, what are the bearings ?
