I'm after a little assistance on an atco garden 30 I'm trying to revive.
Firstly, I'm struggling to properly date it. It came with an aftermarket engine, so no help there, and no identification plates anywhere. It seems fairly old (sorry for being so vague!). Metric spanners don't fit, but neither do imperial. Perhaps it's whitworth?
Anyway, my query at the moment relates to cylinder bearings. The ones currently fitted are pretty worn, so need replacing. I can't find any Id numbers on the bearings and the measurements I've taken don't seem to match up to any standard sizes. I wondered if anyone knew the answer! Here's what I've measured.
Bearing id 19.77mm
Bearing od 47.06mm
Bearing width 14mm
Cylinder shaft 1 od 20mm (seems unworn)
Cylinder shaft 2 od 19.5mm (has a step worn in surface).
My next question perhaps is how to repair the worn shaft. My thinking was to try to find an engineering shop who would machine down the worn surface to a standard size (thinking perhaps 19.05mm) and fit new bearing from there.
Any pointers would be gratefully received.
