Well didn't get my ride on mower, builders did not have time to make a opening in my garage,so I've decided after servicing the mountfield I needed a project, so looked around the free ads and found a rover powered mower, it has a Briggs and Stratton engine a quantum 50xts , it has a strange 2 or 4 blade configuration I've not seen before, it's made in Australia and seems well built, issue was a leaking fuel line so an easy fix, built in 2002 and has been standing for about 4 years, filled it with petrol ( you call this gas ?) , and she fired up instantly little smoke initially but then cleared, ticked over nicely, I will pour some new liquid gold into the engine , change spark plug, new air filter and clean and replace gaskets on the carburettor, new fuel line also , will strip away old paint and re-spray also make sure underside will be sealed to moisture and grass, need to find a grass catcher though , I've taken photos of Geraldine
Last image is of my current modernish mountfield mower
Any tips or tricks greatly appreciated
