    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! ๐Ÿ˜‚ 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. โ˜บ 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. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜จ 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.

    Bolens Husky 613 3speed

    I bought this machine from second hand shop in internet. it cost me 80 รขโ€šยฌ. working, but the engine has been chanced to briggs&stratton 8 hp, and the lawnblades were worn out and cuttened in pieces, also the 3 blade-tables was totally broken. But my father in law fixed them, so now my husky is working fine. Also i put better choke-handle to it, because it were not working, and the footgrill was too tiny and far away for my 6&7 years old boys to ride, so i make some bigger and longer footgrills to it. Now im looking for parts to this machine, Brake is barely working, also (because of that) the gearbox is quite rattling,when changing a gear when brakes are not totally bottomed.. Ou, i also put hand-handle for the brake, because its easier to the boys to work with. Then i must change the oil to the rear of the bolens. the tires are full-rubber in back, and normal air filled tires in front. Has anyone any guide to this model ? how i do the things right ? I can do them by my mind, but if there are some special what not to do, or what must do first, i dont know about things like that. And there are the accumulator under the seat, earlier owner has changed the tiny accu to normal car size accu, now it starts, no matter what! Thanks! i give some pics when i got my camera better... edited some odd words better..
