Sadly, I am not a proud new owner, my friend has asked if I can restore it. The frame I can do but the engine is a first for me and so any advice and pointers would be very much welcome.
Just a couple of updated pictures, the weather has delayed further progress, the fuel tank and its brackets are hung out to dry undercover. As for the engine, I decided to Chicken out, I lack the confidence which is not helped by the fact the owner does not want to throw a lot of money at it, I guess he does not share the same passion.
I must say, the overall framework has been a challenge, its been no picnic getting all the seized parts separated but I am enjoying the experience of working on a bigger Lawnmower.
For many members, I know you would not leave a job half done but I am working on a shoe string and at best, this Atco Standard "Sadly" will be nothing more than a static garden ornament.
Once the top section is fitted, I will post the end result, I need buy the right decals for the fuel tank either from the club or ebay.
Thanks to everyone for their past comments and support.
