    Early Westwood Mower Wanted

    Hey mate, good luck with finding one. There's a lot of "paleface" early Westwoods still around, in fact at any given time there's usually a couple/few on ebay, but as for the very early ones with angled footrests from 1978 and maybe before, these are very scarce, as we have discussed. I am sure they're out there though. I have seen a few on that auction site that cannot be named, in fact that's where I found mine. If I hear or or see any for sale, will be sure to let you know.

    1978 Westwood

    Thanks! When I have a go at sorting out my electrical gremlins I will post the progress updates here

    1978 Westwood

    Great video, it is really nice to see the mower in action. She's looking very good indeed for her age, very tidy underneath, and I understand you wanting to keep those stickers on as part of the mower's history. Sometimes I wonder about completely restoring/repainting mine, but then there is something quite special about an old machine that is preserved in a "used but not abused" state. Having said that, it's amazing what a difference a new seat can make to a machine.

    Westwood Grille Fabrication (Fibreglass)

    Hi all, been a long time since I updated this, I wouldn't say I lost interest, more like I have been distracted by lots of other projects Anyway, I have made a small start on the grille, so far so good. I am working in small sections at a time so I can be as perfectionist as possible. Once the mould is done I will sand it down and use a thin skim of body filler over any rough patches, then paint. For originality I was thinking of painting it a creamy white colour, but part of me wants to do something a little custom like silver

    Westwood Questions

    Would love to see more and see any paperwork you might have, if you get time to upload it (and any updates to your Westwood too!)

    That's a real shame, but I would be really interested to see a photo! Welcome to the forum, MowMaster! I am glad you're liking the thread, and I agree Westwoods are great tractors. There are a few Westwood fans here with W11's. Also I thought you folks might want to see these photos that my brother took (he's an amateur photographer), I think they look great:

    Ah yes sorry I forgot to mention they are spade-style connectors, once you take off the plastic cover that is seen in the pictures of the lights on ebay, there's a positive, negative and earth. Unfortunately I haven't seen a new set of headlights with screw connectors. I think WestwoodW8Gazelle is referring to the type of connectors like in the photo he shared, as opposed to the modern spade connector types.

    Thanks! I would be very interested to see your Westwood and any updates. My headlight was from ebay, if you search for "Case International 384,444,585,674,784 Tractor Head Light" you should be able to find the ones I got (I decided to get a spare too) but I don't think I am allowed to post direct links here. Can PM you if you need it though. They were a little pricey, but not too bad I suppose. Haha fair enough, will look forward to hearing abut the pulley

    Here's the Westwood with the new seat I got for my birthday and a new headlight The seat is really nice, I also replaced the bar and clip that the seat pivots on to reveal the storage box (or boot? ) with two M8s because the bar was very loose and the seat wobbled on even a slight hill. It's very comfortable now
