    I don't know what the ignition is like on one that old, but I suspect behind the flywheel you'll find a generator coil, a set of points, a capacitor and a high tension coil, later ones had a self contained electronic ignition.
    As they only run to about 2000rpm I doubt if the timing changes with rpm.

    I think there were 400 people working there when I was there, but when my dad worked there in the late 60s and early 70s it was quite a bit bigger, there was a big foundry site on the other side of the river to where I worked.
    There were a small number of linked businesses that were on the same site, 3 in 1 oil and Sifbronze are two that I can remember but there were some more.
    The site is now owned by Bosch and I think it's used as a parts wharehouse and for warranty work on garden machinery.

    Good effort there Sir! I had a local scap man that I used to supply with drain covers off jobs on the look out for a 'proper' mower. He got his hands on a Suffolk Punch that I gave him 15 for. I have a local mower man who has all the old gear for sharpening the blades and everything. He isn't cheap however! I think it has cost me over 150 since getting it sorted, but it is a real pleasure to use. Starts first time and gives the best stripes ever. I'll see if I can dig up a photo. Where abouts are you based? Do you have someone local who can sort the blades out properly?
