    1978 Westwood

    Hi all, and of course Westwood fans that may be interested... I have bought a 1978 W8 Westwood gazelle 'pale face', starts on the key. 8 horsepower, column gear change. I have recently replaced points and condenser which seemed to of solved the problem, as before when the mower ran for a few minutes the engine used to cut out. I have also replaced air filter for the first time in 39 long years! 😂 I have also given the engine numerous amounts of oil changes as when I bought the mower last year there was lots of residue like sludge left in the oil. After all the work, engine starts and runs lovely. ☺ About a month ago... I was cutting grass and tried using the clutch and the clutch wouldn't stop the machine!!! So had to shut off the machine before I nearly collided. 😂😨 Only to find the drive belt had slipped off the pulley. This has made me by a new drive belt with two new pulleys. The pulleys arrived but wasn't convinced they were the right size, so I sent them back. Kept the drive belt. Unfortunately I am having troubles with finding the right size pulleys for the mower. If anyone has a pair of unused original metal Westwood Gazelle pulleys for sale, or know where to find some. Please tell me. Thanks. Here's some pics of my Westwood last year.

    Briggs & Stratton Running Issues

    Hi All, I've just seviced the little Soverign lawn mower that i use on the allotment. It hasn't been used for a while before i seviced it. I finally got it running, replaced the diaphram, cleaned the filter, changed the oil, emptied out the old fuel, filled up with new fuel, all the rest was ok, already had a new spark plug, not much else i can do. Well finally got it going but it is running high and low, i've got a 30 second film i can send you so you can hear it (file size to big to put on here). Does anyone know what else i can do to make it run smoothly? Best Regards, Rob

    Briggs & Stratton Starting Problems

    Hi All at My Old Machine, I bought an old Briggs & Stratton Rotovator and have had it now for over a year. When i bought it it started first time, now it only starts sometimes. When i pull the cord it catches some times but most of the time it doesn't. When it does catch it starts first time and runs well. It has been looked after well and been serviced every year since new. New plugs, gasket, oil, petrol etc. Also i don't know what model, make engine size etc. it is, so if anyone can help there that would be most appreciated. The seial number is 130232 0560-01 75100207 Picture's below. Best Regards, Rob
