This is my 1972 1886.
Brought it off a chap on ebay who buys up old mowers etc & sells them on.
It had sat for many years in a barn. The deck it has was rotted out.
The engine was stuck through standing with rusty dust in the bores. The carb was hanging off. 4 flat tyres & generaly rusty.
I stripped it down, freed up everthing. Overhauled the engine & fitted a 2nd hand cowl as the base had rotted away. Made up an exhaust. The deck you see came of my HT20
Gave it a light sand & poured gear oil over it as I dont want to restore it
Ended up fitting a new coil as it used to cut out after 20 mins of hard mowing.
I love this tractor & not seen or heard of another 1886 in the UK yet
