Hi all - I've been using the posts here to help me get my ATCO (bought with little to no idea... just wanted a proper old mower!) up and running.
It's running quite nicely now - only on tickover as the throttle spring is stretched so the throttle is ineffective. Still goes and cuts, though!
I'd love to restore it properly - ie. get rid of rust, respray, for missing parts etc. But I'm not sure whether I have a "24HD" with a replacement Briggs engine, or a Royale with a metal grass collector. Or something else?!
it's either missing a green metal shroud around the handle hinge, or the original tank. And the naff black plastic throttle lever needs to come off...
I'd love to hear members identifications and and tips. It's in reasonable mechanical condition and poor cosmetic (but prob no worse than expectation). I'd love a trailing roller seat for it unless that proves to be heresy!
