    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 !
  13. We had a bit of snow today, gave me an excuse to get the Mayfield out and stretch its legs

    Auto culto strip down

    Congratulations on the second place! A just reward for all your hard work on the auto culto.
  18. This is an ED300 charging set, I believe it was built by BSA under licence from Johnson.The previous owner told me that it was from WW2, and had been on a fire launch which was on Belfast Lough. When I got it,there was no compression and no spark.I took the head off to find a stuck exhaust valve, corroded valve seats, and a stuck top compression ring.These are now freed off and valve seats recut and valves ground in. Now have some compression .The points required cleaning and a replacement ht lead restored a healthy blue spark . I am now working my through the dynamo end, it starts off a battery and gives some output.If anybody knows where I can get a choke assy for this engine.Please let me know

    Mountfield m1

    It looks like you have a briggs built in 1975 possibly 5hp the first two numbers are not that easy to see.They give the cubic capacity. From my own machines if the first two numbers are 13 that's 5hp, 14 is 6hp

    Briggs engine id

    Hello If the first number is correct it confirms that the engine is 6 hp , horizontal shaft,with flojet carburettor, and pneumatic (air vane)governor. There should be another 8 digit number the first two digits of this number is the year.You should be able to find a parts list for your engine on the briggs website using the 142301 number
