I found this old girl during our HR collection in October last year. I got around to taking a look at it last week. All it needed was a new fuel tap as the old one was broken. I did clean out the carby as a matter of course and flush the crud out of the fuel tank. It never ceases to amaze me what people throw out.
A couple of before and after pics for your viewing pleasure.

Cheers, Ted

Hi BT,
they are a beautiful thing and as long as you can find a catcher it is a mower that will outlast 20 of the current type of new mowers

Hi Bigted NormK and wce,
I never knew the Walton store brand Celestial came in that colour combo. Needless to say, but I'll say it, good score.


Ahh, if only victa had kept producing the thumblatch catcher series, they would be in better shape today!

*Update*
Patience is a virtue, i found the catcher to suit on hard garbage a few months back. Unfortunately it's the wrong color.
