Been servicing the above mower, it has been stood around for about 8 years or so, it runs fine now and all the chains move as they should..
The problem I have is the roller will not roll on its own, the cylinder turns as well, even though the cutter release lever is lifted and pulled clear of the notch.
Greatful of some advice, maybe something needs adjustment..
Hi all, looking for some help.... As per title, I bought a Groundsman and she's being difficult.
I don't "get" imperial. I just don't... I understand my 1/2" & 3/8" & 1/4" ratchets, but then it's metric sockets so I have to go by some old sockets I may have kicking around or the nearest metric equivalent, but not one olde worlde spanner I'm afraid...
Dear members I am looking for some spares for this recent purchase and wondered if anyone could help. I am a new member of the OLC so forgive me if I have crossed any boundaries. Thanks in advance Andy F
Thank you for letting me join. I have just bought an 1991 Atco Commodore 17s, it originally started and ran well and after some time I got used to and enjoyed the slow paced lawn mowing. I started to get problems mid run with the mower just cutting out. In the end it would start but as soon as I asked anything of it it would stall. I cleaned the carb and realised the the gasket for the float chamber was incorrect so I ordered a new one. When it arrived I found that the reason the they gasket was wrong and oversized was that the float chamber was incorrect and too short to fit correctly.
During the 1980s I was employed as Professional Equipment Sales Manager by Birmid Qualcast at Bristol Garden Machinery Ltd. This was the re-located Chepstow Atco Service Branch.
So i have had this Atco Oval frame for a few years and has been a slow parts gathering exercise. The main frame came from a very nice man in oxfordshire who was a retired race engineer from Pro Drive ( various circuit and BTCC teams)
It all started with an Atco, many decades ago, as a child, I was always tinkering. After one prolonged absence in my grandfather's garage he came in to find I'd dismantled every spare bakelite plug and socket he owned including removing every brass screw out of every terminal.
