    I sourced a Tecumseh replacement - original was a Kirby brand

    I love how the design hasn't changed for 4 decades - if it works.....

    welcome to pop over and take the lot - even if you can only salvage the carby etc

    as an ex hoarder I can't throw anything away but if you do come you'll see why I have to draw the line!

    the blue half? why I do believe it does - either that, or the old one was 1/2 and I had to buy a 5/8 - let me check for you tomorrow

    Agreed, I don't live in those areas but driving through local areas on the way to drop the kids at school i swear the furniture that's being thrown out is better than I had in my first couple of houses. Jeezus the amount of srainless steel barbeques dumped is amazing. Such a waste of money.

    Amongst good scores a working Scott bonner roller mower and a barracuda kreepy krawly with about 10 lengths of hose that worked better than mine !

    Never seen any motorcycle stuff though, Neva a one.

    +1 I used to have one that my father and grandfather bought back in the late 70's/early 80's Had a Kirby Tecumseh motor and went great for years before the motor eventually shit itself Managed to get the motor replaced through work with a Briggs & Stratton one, not flash looking but worked for another 5-6 years before dying again and I flogged it off for ~$200, think it was just a carb issue but couldn't be bothered fixing it as I now only have ~5m2 of lawn in the back

    Next thing you guys will be comparing garden forks....I can just imagine the conversation...."I have the Spear and Jackson No 7 with the 1/2 hickory handle....
    No garden forks but I have a couple of great S&J hand saws that do a great job

    I bought one on gumtree. Balcatta mowers have all the small parts like replacement handles etc.

    Also good at sharpening blades and bed blade. Fucking awesome mowers.

    Our garden fork has been in the family for 50 years and still going strong.

    Changed the handle four times and the head twice.
