    Koehler carb help please

    If head is warped you have nothing to lose by following what Anglo Traction suggests to sort warped head.It will be cheaper and more satisfying if you can sort it yourself rather than using a machine shop.

    Koehler carb help please

    Looks like head gasket has been leaking, I have found in the past that some kohler heads seem prone to warping. A quick check of head for warp is to place a straight edge across head face and look for light under straight edge. more accurate way is to try and slide a feeler gauge between bottom of straight edge and head face.check diagonally.

    Mountfield M1 coil.

    You might be able to find a parts list on the briggs website,armed with the part number for the coil, search ebay for a replacement.Alternatively you would be able to get a genuine replacement from briggsbits they are UK based

    Mayfield snowplough

    No problem at all, It is easier than the allen scythe that I used to use.The wheel hubs are left unlocked and the Mayfield has reverse gear which helps.The Mayfield is a bit lighter than the allen scythe even with the wheel strakes fitted.I am hoping we get more snow to play in !
  14. We had a bit of snow today, gave me an excuse to get the Mayfield out and stretch its legs

    Hello, I am looking for one of the above carburettors to suit a Bamford EG1 if any body has one spare.I would also take just the lower half that incorporates the float bowl.Thank you
