Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers
Hi I am restoring a Suffolk Corporation .Mower has drive to one wheel only, the issue is a worn pinion/pawl pictured,the left is the defective item.any ideas for repair or replacement.
In case you are not already aware the parts are the same as those used on the Squire .
Pinion LH L180
Pinion RH L131
Try Jon Cruse of the Hailsham Mower Centre
Thanks Wristpin . Also a mower called a demon! Could this be an un celebrated class of suffolk mowers?
Yes, but the "similar configuration" Suffolk 16 and L40 use different pinions and pawls!!
Suffolk Demon documents are on site:
Thanks OLC Admin .Interesting colour scheme
Corporation up date.We have now got drive to both wheels with parts from a donor mower and pawls from our friend at Hailsham mower centre.Mower bought for parts has an unusual exhaust,(see picture) has any one seen one like this before on a suffolk engine
Not on a Suffolk but used to see that pattern on Briggs fitted to Merrytillers.
Hi Supergrass, what are you thinking of doing with the doner Corporation mower please?
Hi Lix.not sure yet till the project is complete.All ready poached the drive pinions and rollers and may need parts off the clutch .I wont know for sure till its running.Do you have a similar machine?
Thanks for the reply. No, I have a Suffolk Super Punch but I’m slowly getting hooked on old lawn mowers and this looked a good next project. But it sounds a tad too far gone or stripped for any use. But thanks anyway
