  1. Cannot see from your photo but is the whole arm missing or just the bearing section that pushes on the belt. If you can find a cheap knackered Flymo DM most parts are interchangeable. The belt on these is A20.5 as it is just a bit longer than the A20 on the DM
  2. Hi Tony, take a few photos of how it all looks now & what your issue is. I am sure someone on here can help. I assume it is the original Suffolk engine
  3. Hi, the engine is an Aspera & some parts are common to Tecumseh. I would start with cleaning the contact points under the flywheel with fine Emery cloth & then wipe them with a clean rag. Nearly always gets the spark back. You may need to give the carb a good clean out too.
  4. Thanks for your advice. Its like you say, the size & HT lead position are critical within the limited space available. I have my fingers crossed at the moment as a guy in Ireland has a good coil & doesn't want the earth for it . Cheers, Ian
  5. Tried the mower centre but no luck. I hate to be beaten & would like to see this saw run again. Has anyone ever cut open a failed coil & successfully rewound it. These coils are like hens teeth.
  6. Go to eBay UK, search Suzuki S200, searching All Items and Best Match. Comes up as first item when I do it
  7. There is a manual for this engine on eBay for £6 at the moment. It confirms that it has transistorised ignition, so no points. As I said earlier, check the compression, spark & oil & if all good you should buy it if the price is right. Blocked carburettors can always be cleaned if you take care
  8. It was a decent engine. Check it has compression & a spark. I would doubt it is old enough to have points, so could be bad news if there is no spark. Check the oil level as this will give you an idea if has been looked after. At the end of the day, even if the engine is shot you can always fit something else.
  9. Hi, yes it was me who had the merry tiller with the same engine. Definately not the original engine & as you said, they are extremely rare & I don't fancy your chances of obtaining parts for it. Why don't you post some photos & explain what you need. There are ways of getting round things & plenty of good brains in this group. This was mine but I sold it
  10. Would love to help but this is not my photo & I have never seen one before
  11. More stable with the wheels further apart like this
  12. I recently bought two Homelite C-51 chainsaws. The second one I bought now runs like new & is probably the loudest chainsaw you will ever come across. The first one is no longer seized & I have some more new rings after not taking enough care with the first set I bought. My big problem now is lack of spark & the coil has been tested & is definitely the reason. The Homelite part number is 55986-A. These are extremely scarse & non existent in the UK. I cannot justify the cost of purchasing one off fleabay & shipping over from the states. Has anyone any idea where there could be one over here. Ian
  13. The A20 is perfect for the Briggs engine on the Flymo DM, but the Suffolk needs a slightly longer belt
  14. I restored mine in 2018. Which drive belt did you use. I found the A20.5 is a perfect fit for the Gemini.
