  1. Hi all, I've been fairly inactive for the past year as a lot has happened including my dad helping me to build a shed for my junk! I've still got my Westwood Gazelle MK2 which has given me a lot of fun but also a lot of saving for parts haha. I recently was given a rare MK1 Gazelle for my birthday back in June which I'll eventually respray original colours and decals as well as mechanical work to get it running right. I was very lucky to get it as apparently there was a guy in Scotland who was going to pick it up a day after us but the owner had accepted our offer first. Recently had the carburetor cleaned on the MK2 as had trouble starting it as well as it fluttering when going onto higher revvs. Since purchased i've replaced points and condenser, air filter, pulleys, drive belt, lights, seat, fuel piping, and a new fuel filter. Initially it was running great as it should do haha. Although when taking it out today I noticed a lot of fluttering throughout running which meant the governor was working fast, I'm not sure if the new fuel piping is a little small or the filter is slowing the fuel down from getting to the engine, either way I think it may be fuel starvation so will try to sort that! Here's some pictures of the Gazelle after cutting in summer time and all oiled for winter (google album) - https://photos.app.goo.gl/KyJB88PZSMffRAqVA
  2. Hi, just watched some of the videos, I must say that's one lovely tractor! I found the videos interesting and have subscribed to stay up to date as looking forward to hearing it running
  3. Hey Josh I'm Alfie from YouTube haha. Great to see you on here as well as new Westwood content.
  4. That's pretty incredible, almost as if it had just been delivered from the factory haha. All original paint and engine bay look very tidy, with everything looking original. Thanks for posting!
  5. Ah right, it's ironic as the Westwood Orange paint in my eyes is too orange when compared to the colour of my Westwood's bonnet. Much appreciated. Cheers.
  6. Nice to see the old Westwood kit. When restoring the cultivator, what was the paint you used as that's the same colour as my Gazelle when Westwood orange paint seems too orange than the old red/orange paint on the cultivator and gazelle. Thanks.
  7. @WestwoodGazelle Hi, ok that would be great if you would be able to have a look out for any Westwood tractors that's the same as yours pictured above. I will have a look out also for a Westwood Lawn Bug in Wales as I'm virtually on eBay everyday. Cheers
  8. Yeah I know, but I don't think I will be able to find an early early Westwood as there's virtually none of these seen not even on google images! That's why I'm trying to get the earliest possible or just about possible with the gearstick in the middle etc. Thanks for the information. Much appreciated. Yeah I know but they haven't got the early features. I just can't find an earlier Westwood than mine, it's like they all went to the incinerator, I'm sure unfortunatley some of them did. Lol. Thanks for the reply.
  9. No! Aha oh well. They are becoming so few and far between and I have been looking everywhere for one. So any condition, any location I will take it. Lol.
  10. Wanted Westwood Gazelle Lawn Mower - Hi all, I am looking for an early Westwood tractor that has a white grille, flat footrests, and all should have a gearstick in the middle between steering wheel and seat. Any location within the UK I can collect with courier or collection in person (Cash on collection) or bank transfer. If you have an early Westwood with these features like the two pictured below and want to sell, please message me through MoM or by phone through message. If you know of anyone who may have one that would be interested to sell, please also message me. Any condition I am interested to purchase. Much appreciated. Thanks.
  11. That's some good vintage piece of kit. Would be nice to here it run
