  2. HI again,  That's Ok.  How do I pay you?  I assume you live in Brackley near Reading and could you please tell me what times would be convenient to collect it.

    Two wheeled trailed seat

    Many thanks for your reply to my post. It may be possible to adapt your trailing seat, but I don't know how it would perform on what is fairly uneven ground having a roller instead of two wheels like the Hater model. How much are you asking for it. Regards Ray

    Two wheeled trailed seat

    Wanted a two wheeled trailed seat for a Hayter Twenty One. Some time ago I remember seeing that a Forum member had bought one and didn't what what it was for, but I can't remember who it was!

    Hayter 21 axle

    Thanks Richard and Wristpin. I will check the disc and blades as suggested and the transmission gearbox input pulley to see if I do have a two speed machine and will report back in due course.

    Hayter 21 axle

    I have finally reassembled the 21 and Wristpin was right! It no longer slips the clutch, but has only one speed fast!!! After 'running; and hanging on for 3 1/2 hours mowing I will have to try and buy a wheeled seat. The only problem I have with it now is vibration which loosens the nuts on the cover and height adjuster.

    Another good job, but how did you drill those square holes?

    Thanks Richard - this will make another useful addition to my 'library'

    Hayter 21 axle

    Thanks Wristpin. I was sure until I saw your reply. Following your post I have looked again at the Spare Parts Book again and can see that the nearest key (4295) to the Backplate is intended for the small sprocket and that key 1662 is the one for the backplate. I'll have to look more closely next time! Thank you Richard for looking through your stock and for the helpful Chart. I ordered a couple of keys from the Link you gave me and immediately after received Wristpin's reply highlighting the fact that I had incorrectly read the Spare Parts Book. At least if you ever need a key I may be able to help you from the two I have ordered.

    Vintage Oil Can

    Another excellent restoration! Not only are there few people now who could make a quality item, there are even fewer who could repair one!

    Hayter 21 axle

    Hi Richard, You always seem to be helping me out and I hope I can reciprocate one day! I have endeavoured to measure the keyway and the measurements would seem to be: length 600 thou and width155 thou although the slot in the Backplate seems to be more like 165 thou Regards Ray
  12. Does anyone have or know where to get a key for holding the clutch back plate on the axle? It appears to be a half moon shape and is part number 4295. The key was missing from my 21 and from the part Osprey which I keep for spares. Any help would be much appreciated.

    international historical festival panningen

    Really interesting photos. I've never seen many of the different makes and models before!
  14. The 46th annual Show returns to South Cerney Airfield Cirencester from August 3rd to 5th. The Show is regarded as one of the biggest and best steam, vintage and countryside events in the UK. Set in the former wartime airfield the sprawling show site covers around 2oo acres . This year the Show features nearly 1,000 classic cars from pre and post-war eras including more than 70 classic American cars, 30 vintage car clubs, 335 motorcycles and scooters, 80 bicycles from 1903 to 1980, 30 miniature steam engines, 70 full-size steam engines, model engineering, 200 tractors, over 70 buses and coaches, 130 military vehicles, 315 emergency and commercial vehicles, 70 industrial trucks, 50 vintage caravans, over 50 model aircraft taking to the sky above, 180 trade stands and loads more livestock and show arenas etc..
  15. Thanks Wristpin - I have checked the axle and bush again on the Hayter 21 and there is 36 thou between the exterior radius of the axle and the inside diameter of the bush. Do you know what the correct difference should be? The part number for the O ring is very helpful and I am trying to order one. I will try to adhere to your list of essentials and look forward to being dragged along as I had to physically help the mower along last week for 3 hours to get a job done (before the inevitable prolonged rains appear!). I have looked again at the Osprey chain and it looks like you were right Richard. I could not see a split retaining cotter using a light and mirror so I hacksawed through the half link, but looking closer at the back of there does appear to be provision for one although nothing came off (or I did not see it if it did!) when I removed the chain which is indeed 1/2"". There was no O ring on either the 21 or the Osprey so I am trying to order one.
