Hello Iam Paul. Last year I got the mower bug after buying a Ransomes for my 11 year old son. In six short months I have bought ten mowers to refurbish. Four of these are 1920-1930 Atco standards ,two late 1940s Atcos,a 1957/8, a 1958/9 one as yet unknown [looks 1950 ish] and a 1959 qualcast. All these mowers have cost under £50 each ,although fuel picking them up from around the country nearly doubled this .Seems to be a lack of mowers on e-bay in the Suffolk area! Having stripped four mowers ready to refurbish Iam now looking for information on parts . The engines are stripped and decoked but can anyone tell me if gasket sets for these smaller Villiers are available or do I need to make them? There seems a good supply of electrical parts but I would like to hear from others for good supplies of any parts please. This site has helped alot so far and the club looks well worth joining . Thanks for reading this and hope to hear from some of you,and a Happy New Year from me.
