Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers
Hi all i am trying to get hold of a Webb 18" bottom blade
or a part number. I think the model is 520 / 523
the blade has 8 countersunk holes
i would think the mower is late 60s
An image of the whole machine and one of the blade will help. Plus is the front edge lipped , straight or chamfered ? An image removes a lot of the guess work.
If it had a Briggs and Stratton engine and it is the original engine the first two digits under the word code will be the year the engine was made followed by the day and month.
I was thinking that you may have an 18" Standard or De Luxe but those 500 numbers don't match.
Yes I presume the blade was straight there is no sign of any chamfer the engine is a Briggs
and I was told by someone it's an 18" standard if anyone has a parts diagram for the cylinder and blade Assy. Would be appreciated
I have a Webb 18" standard and I have provided Dropbox links of files in my posession. I have not used Dropbox before so I hope you can read them. Suzanne
So as it has a Briggs there will be Model, Type and Code numbers stamped into the blower housing - help us to help you with a date!
If its a Standard it will have a single A36 drive belt. If there are two belts it is a De Luxe.
The bottom blade for the Standard(F016W29680) is shown with pan head screws not countersunk so either you've not got a Standard or it has a non standard (pattern) bottom blade fitted.
I've got illustrated parts lists for both but before I take time to scan them etc please lets have a date code and a couple of images to show that we are on the right track.
Just remembered. I think the model numbers are actually 250 or 253. Good luck.
Thank you for your info and diagrams they are spot on the model
really greatfull all I have to do now is find one should be interesting
As you say, finding one could be tricky but Garfitts supply bed knives / bottom blades for a lot of older machines but I cant find it listed in their on line catalogue, however they keep patterns for many obsolete blades and will make one to suit. Does seem odd that the parts book shows pan head screws but not only does yours have countersunk ones but so does mine! Second one down in the attached image.
