Hi to all !!
New member here.
I'm not an avid collector - for some unexplainable reason I bought a JP Super power mower around 12 years ago then left it languishing in the shed ever since.
However, recently I achieved the holy grail - I have a shiny new workshop in my back garden. Searching for my first project I decided to breathe new life into the JP.
I reconditioned the engine (Villiers Mk12/2), and freed off all the seized parts on the mower. It now works well enough to cut my lawns.
I joined this club to help satisfy my curiousity about the history of my mower.
Having read the excellent articles in Grassbox, I think I've established that my mower was manufactured in 1956.
Something's not right though.
JP Super Mk IV Size 15
The machine number is B15/2E
Unit number is U15/5/2E 4
I believe that the '/2' means that the mower should be fitted with a 2 stroke engine whereas mine has the 4 stroke engine fitted.
Am I on the right track? Does my mower have a non-original engine?
Any contribution/opinion would be welcome.
