Greetings from Sydney Australia, I've recently acquired the above mower in reasonably good condition, replaced spark plug, broken fuel cock and gave it an oil change, ticks like a clock, quiet smooth etc. Rotating blade is am little on the rough side so planning to do a little work on it using Valve lapping paste running the blades slowly in reverse.
Problem 1 - I've removed the chains hoping to be able to rotate the blade backwards but can't work out how to take the sprocket off. It's either on a spline or reverse thread, not sure which but if someone out there can advise me I'll be eternally grateful.
Would also be handy to have a service and workshop manual for it to help the cause, I'm trying to give it a full restoration, paintwork is reasonable but it would sure look so much better with a bare metal respray in 2 Pak paint. Amazing but the grass catcher doesn't even have a dent on it, I'll be looking for a photo of the original decals and transfers to apply when
Hope to hear from willing helpers.
Regards to all,
