Hi forums. So this is my first post, so please bear with me.

Just picked up a Victa 18 model 5 special. Unlike a lot of people, I actually intend to use this mower regularly.

It’s in remarkably good condition, starts first pull. But it either doesn’t have a complete/correct choke air filter.

Where can I get one? I found exactly 1 on eBay for $180 which is more than I paid for the mower! Could I use a generic part? Any recommendations would be a huge help. I’m in Australia.

Hello Scott

What I would personally do (since you are using it and not a show piece) is put a later 70's white victa housing with paper filter for better engine life, plus easier on the wallet as well.

If worse comes to worse, throw on an easy to get Rover filter housing for now and try to track down a Victa one

Somewhere on here is the Victa bulletin saying 'we no longer make the old housings, use the white one in servicing'

As Tyler suggests if you are not using it for show I would use a Rover filter body. They should be easy to find as I have a few kicking around here. From memory you can then use the long Victa filter

Hi norm. Thanks for the reply. I’m a total newbie at this, my memory of Victas is back to the early 80s. So I don’t quite know what part you are describing. Any further help would be great.

Hi Norm and Scott

With the rover body, you can use a victa long, but doesn't fit well. There are 2 similar styles of Rover filter which are better

Hey Tyler. Thanks for that. Could you post me a link to the actual product at all mowers? Ive got an order in with them so I can add it on.

Hi Scott

I usually post ODK store links, however Bruce doesn't have this one available (that I can see). https://www.outdoorking-forum.com.au/lawn-mo...03217-8?zenid=h12rm5nf8726n3f4129i6aso80

Also FYI regarding the housing change https://www.outdoorking-forum.com.au/forum/u...e-paper-filter-assemblies.html#Post87340
