Im still way behind in my knowledge of the early victa models and the significance of the serial numbers so I was wondering if the number in the picture 114993 is possibly an automatic serial number?

Yes 114,993 is an Auto ,the Automatic/Predicta started at 110,000.

Hi Sean and Max

Sean, a very important question for some collectors.
Max, sincere thanks for answering these Victa number questions.

This is way out of my depth for Victa production.

Cheers

Thanks Max and Jack. I've been given a few different prices on the engine but im already giving it to a mate for $50 as it only cost me $33 in an auction and I only bid on it because I have to go there to pick up the 1958 Pace. Now I'm picking up 4 mowers from this place.
1 1958 Pace 18 automatic
1 Unknown Pace 18 $34
1 Victa 15 model 5 base (I'm guessing) $30
1 82-83s corvette $11

I have no clue to anything to do with the older Pace, I only have the handful of pictures on ebay.

Hey Max, I didn't quite understand what you meant when you said to click the link and go to page 1. Well I just finihed reading the 6 pages. WOW, what a great read and almost a cliff hanger waiting for some magical box of original documents that explained all and everything to do with victa identification especially these early models. But I guess the nice thing is 8 out of 10 people could tell you that your mower isn't right because of a star instead of a moon on a logo but if "you believe that your mower is a certain model then it is"! why? Because there are no official documents, anyone who was working for victa at the start probably isn't alive or even able to help with information. So if someone wants to point out the tiniest reason why your mower isn't the model you have restored it as or say it is. Feel sorry for them, seriously they are looking at life through a very narrow and negative way. Or they just want to feel like they are the only one with a perfect matching everything mower.

At the end of the day we love these older mowers and other older nicnaks but they are just stuff and maybe some can't be replaced these days but they can be reproduced. So many things in life are more important then just stuff....... Granted that I have no GF no children or dependents and live alone (happily) so I have the extra $$$, the extra room, only 1 mouth to feed and get to do whatever I want or choose to do.

I just couldn't get the link to work for page one Sean , when I click on the link it goes
to page 14 out of 15 then people can go to the top of the page and click (go to page one) ,just so people
can start reading from the start .

Cheers
Max.

Hi Max

I know you have had the issue - of dead links - a few times before.
I'm not sure why that is so.

But I think I have a work-around: -

Try using the 'Full Editor' when adding links.
No need to use the 'Inset Link' button though.
Any hyperlink pasted into the body should be
recognised automatically as a hyperlink.

I would like to sort this issue.

Cheers

Yes I've tried that too Jack it didn't work.

Sometimes the Outdoorking link won't work so I put a google link in and it works fine .

I thought it was a problem with Outdoorking as I try a lot of different ways of adding the links and re edit many times and
the link still doesn't work but doing the same exact thing on a different part of ODK the links work fine also seen other
people have the same problem usually their links work and then in a certain section on ODK their link is dead.

It's very strange how the links work fine in some parts of ODK then I do the exact same method to install
the link and try other ways that should work too but don't.

Might just be the computer saying no. smile

Max.

Hi Max
That would be very frustrating!

From what you say, this problem only occurs for you in some forums - like this current one ...
https://www.outdoorking.com/forum/u...estions-on-victa-two-stroke-engines.html

Let us look into this.

Cheers
------------------------
Jack

p.s. Can you try using the 'Insert Link' button in the Full Editor.
That should force a link to be created whether it is a dead link or active one.

Could you do this in a reply below this post and leave the results.

Sort of , I don't have any trouble adding a link most of the time but then in a certain topic nothing works when I
add the link but in this section I can't get any of the below links to work in this section .

I think it might be my browser it doesn't work with links on ODK, I have a lot of restrictions set in the browser.

Yes I have used that method many times as well to get the links to work
but it still doesn't work when I get links not working.

The strange thing is if I put a link to any ODK page on another site I never
have a problem with dead links but occasionally adding a link on ODK
won't work even trying many different ways to add the link that all
would normally work .

Test

blades



https://www.outdoorking.com/law...omo-blade-up-until-1960.-ca09150s-bld306


Yes when I add the link ODK and my browser kills the link so it no longer works but if I copy the link
onto a notepad then copy the address from the notepad and paste into the address bar ,the page
loads up fine.Sounds like my browser won't work with ODK with some links but if I use a Google search
link it works fine.

Hi Max, Bruce and Sean
Max, I used your profile to post two links (above).
They show that both links are active as copied from my internet browser address bar.

I fully appreciate the issue, and I would be frustrated if it happened to me! mad
We are making progress though...

The thing is that any issues are more likely to be forum specific and not global.

Max, could you please re-post another random link in a reply below.
Do this by pasting a link from your address bar and place it in a quick reply window.
If the link fails, just leave it there.

I will delete these posts after the issue is resolved.

Cheers

Hi Jack, Bruce and Sean

Tested below and is now working but if I put the same link in a different Forum in ODK it may not work .
https://www.outdoorking.com/lawn-mo...omo-blade-up-until-1960.-ca09150s-bld306

This is working too.
https://www.outdoorking.com/accesso...k-plugs?zenid=j3an54rc6rdv9uo9f2b9dsjhc1

https://www.outdoorking.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=45919&page=all

https://www.outdoorking.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=47908&page=all

I tried the ODK mower blade link on another non ODK Forum and it also would not work , for some reason some
ODK links are not working but other links work without any problems.Now that the blade link is working
here I wonder if it works on non ODK Forums now.

Tested the blade link on a non ODK Forum and it's now working ,looks like it's fixed Jack cheers2

Another strange thing is in some Forums in ODK no links work for me but like this thread once the
link is fixed by Jack or another administrator I can put the same link in again and it will work.

Hi Max

A few month's ago, a forum upgrade essentially made the 'Insert Link'
in the full editor redundant.

Any valid hyperlink should be recognised automatically when
pasted into any post.

Clearly, that was not happening here and Bruce resolved the issue.

These issues seem to be forum specific, so any future issues
in other forums should be reported.

My regret is that we did not act sooner on this, as I recall you
reporting this is a number of posts. The easy fix was for a MOD
to fix the link rather than the real problem.
I'll delete these posts in a few days as the correct forum is: -

https://www.outdoorking.com/forum/u...te-problems-suggestions-and-updates.html

Cheers Max for your patience and reporting on this.

G'day Jack

Yes I was using the insert link in the full editor section but that wasn't helping with certain links on
the ODK forum.

Thanks Jack ,Bruce and any other MOD that helped to fix this issue.



Cheers
Max.
