Moved on from finishing my Colt and bought a 20" Atco. I'm struggling with finding info about the engine though (I don't actually know the model of mower either) but I'd like to check the points, set the spark plug gap etc. Its a Tecumseh engine and I can just about make out SER 9297C on the case. Can someone point me to some information about it?
Another query, I'm trying to get to the points but three bolts are proving extremely difficult to undo - they're absolutely solid. Just want to check I'm not undoing anything I shouldn't be - it's the three to the left on the image below.
Final question, when its time to change the oil, the drain plug looks like it'll make a mess, are they designed to take the engine off to remove the oil? There's a strange pipe on the other side of the engine - could this be used to drain oil? Picture below
Thanks a lot!
