Hi Everyone 

I have this Atco Groundsman 28" and I am looking for a new or good secondhand cutting cylinder or reel as some say. Sadly the one in mine is past repair as the previous owner never noticed that the end welds had failed on three of the cutting blades and continual adjustments with centrifugal force pulling the end of the blades out have deformed them pulling them out and back so another cylinder is desperately needed so then I will finally have all the parts to start the restoration of this lovely old mower. 
As an addition I would also like to find a pull along seat roller as my mower has a towing attachment. 
Anyone's help and maybe some tips and tricks for my first restoration will be greatfully received .

Hi

Im partway through a resto of Atco 28/34 Groundsman and have realised that it’s had a carb or complete engine change in past and they have either fitted a stationary engine with a V type carb without a throttle of replaced the carb with same. I’m looking for the correct carb and controls which is a Villiers S19/2. Help anybody?

Regards

I have recently acquired a barn stored Atco Standard 16 it has a date hand written inside the flywheel cover of 1928.

It is going to need a replacement engine as I am advised that the previous owner might have run it without oil in the fuel mix and the bottom end is ruined, bores very worn.

I understand that it could be prohibitively expensive to repair the engine so I am searching for a good useable one and also an ignition coil and condenser.

The rest of the machine looks in great order and it would be good to complete it. 

Engine is the Villiers Mk V!c

Hi, I have a 90% restored 6inch Green's Multum in Parvo. Unfortunately whilst it has a scraper plate it is so badly damaged with a huge chunk missing from the middle it is irreparable. If anyone has a 6inch non ornate plate for sale I would gladly purchase this from you. Many thanks, Sean

I am looking for a complete Anglia for restoration project or for parts/spares. If you have a Anglia grassbox that would be great too as my current project doesn't have one.

In addition, I am looking out for any Rotoscythe lawn mowers, again either complete or as spares.

Thanks 

Andrew

Hello, I would like a chain for a 10 inch Ransomes automaton minor. I've no idea of the size it needs to be and no idea how to measure for it. Any instruction would be greatly received, text call or email would be great, for a restoration rescue project. Thanks in advance
