Hi, I have aRansomes Ajax mower which I have been using on and off for 50 years and it still cuts as well as when I bought it for £12.50 round about 1960. Unfortunately the gear train is now showing serious signs of wear and misses a tooth every so often! Is there any source of these gears? I did manage to replace them once many years ago but the source seems to have dried up.
I also have a Ransomes Atlas Mk1 that was my father's, in bits at present but restorable. Is there a source of nuts and bots for these machines or are they standard Whitworth threads? I particularly will need the 4 countersulk short screws that hold the bottom cutting blade on to it's support piece (once I have managed to remove the originals, seriously rusted in!) I would also like to know a source of the authentic red and green paint or something equivalent. Any advice welcomed. Thanks, GJohnB
