  1. westwood lawnbug!!

    Nice job 👍
  2. One of the first Westwood Gazelles

    Yes exactly. Cannot beat good old British engineering. Welcome to the forum! 👍

    That's great. Thank-you for the help.

    Hi, those are my original headlights which I am looking for but I am having trouble finding that exact screw on type. Thanks.

    Hi, this is a picture of one of the lights. Hope this helps. Thanks.

    Hi, had a look at the headlights and noticed they have a plug type terminal compared to the old screw ons. What would I have to do to fit them? Thanks.

    Good to see the old girl, I just done some winter maintenance on mine which I may post later if you are interested. Just wondered where you got the headlight from as on mine I need two. I have found some new pulleys but as I am getting for Christmas, I am not allowed to know what site or anything about them until after 😂 Will tell you as soon as. Thanks.

    This is really interesting, thanks for posting. I wonder what the difference is between the W8E and 11E from the normally W8 and 11 models?

    Ok, thank-you. That would be a great help. I am also looking for two new pulleys, so when I find some I will give you the website link.

    Thanks for the pictures of the chain steering, look very complex! It is interesting to know the history behind Westwood mowers. I am also in need of two headlights, but I have no idea where to find a pair. Will be looking in Ernest Doe. Will be getting some pulleys for next season, can't wait!

    Yes, would love to see a picture out of interest. Thanks ☺👍

    I have never heard of a chain and gear steering. But yes I hope to get some Owatrol, to try to preserve the paint and metal work. Haha. I couldn't resist but to polish the bonnet when I first got the mower three years back, but will use oil this time.

    Exactly, I noticed that the lights were wired up to the engine so that when the engine is running it not only charges the battery but also the lights run off the engine, not the battery! For a 70s machine that's pretty clever. Even I was surprised. Haha. I also came across an early Westwood, same model as yours on YouTube, but unfortunately has been adapted with bigger engine etc.

    Thanks! Not feeling too confident to restore. Haha. But will definitely get the mower mechanically sound with new parts if needed. I always thought that the lights were the deluxe model? Maybe, who knows. Won't be until the next season until I get this girl running as well as my other W8 which still needs pulleys. Through winter I probably will be getting other gazelle ready for next summer mechanically. I try to look after the mower as its almost an interest. Haha. But my mate offered to cut the grass to see how the old Gazelle preformed cutting long grass, which was fine as its ok on the highest adjustment especially when its not a routine. So when I was in house watching I noticed he forgot to adjust the deck height, and the deck was on the lowest adjustment, and the poor engine was smoking and slowing down so I ran outside to stop him!! Last time anyone cuts with that mower. Haha. Not to worry tho as engine runs smoothly and is looked after. Couldn't believe it!
