Which Atco lawnmower is this?

Can anyone identify this lawnmower please?

Is there a manual for it or the engine available?

 

Many thanks,

Andy

Atco

Edit , sorry misread the question! 

Hope that someone will identify the model and date. Villiers Lightweight engine, could be 50cc but mote likely 75cc. 

No problem with an engine manual

Well, it is the engine manual that I am most interested in as I can't get the engine to fire up.

I did a partial engine strip down, cleaned the carb and fitted a replacement fuel tank (the original was too clagged up).

I don't see a noticeable spark when I turn the engine over so I will have to go back to the drawing board with that problem, along with the carb which is leaking out through the air filter.

Thanks for responding

Assuming its 17 inch cut the model was made from  about 1960 ( after the end of the 2 strokes) until 1964 when the Suffolk 75 cc engine was fitted. Would have had a brass tag on right hand side
