Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers
Can anyone identify this lawnmower please?
Is there a manual for it or the engine available?
Edit , sorry misread the question!
Hope that someone will identify the model and date. Villiers Lightweight engine, could be 50cc but mote likely 75cc.
No problem with an engine manual
Well, it is the engine manual that I am most interested in as I can't get the engine to fire up.
I did a partial engine strip down, cleaned the carb and fitted a replacement fuel tank (the original was too clagged up).
I don't see a noticeable spark when I turn the engine over so I will have to go back to the drawing board with that problem, along with the carb which is leaking out through the air filter.
Thanks for responding
There may be something of interest here.
Assuming its 17 inch cut the model was made from about 1960 ( after the end of the 2 strokes) until 1964 when the Suffolk 75 cc engine was fitted. Would have had a brass tag on right hand side
