Does anybody know if the gearboxes are the same in the Y22 and H26 models or are parts still available for the Y22 models as the early ones are now heading 40 years old

Hi Norm,

You could message Deutscher if no one here knows.

The Y22 is 5 Hp and the H26 was 10.5hp to 12.5 hp ,it's possible they used the same drive but usually the cheaper
models use cheaper parts.

Cheers
Max.

Thanks Max, I'm thinking the bigger hp might be the way to go.

Had a win with the one with the Honda on it, the bloke said that the motor was stuffed but it looked ok to me apart from the pull starter broken. Put some fuel in it,drill start and it fired straight up and runs fine. Only thing I am surprised with it is it is a GXV120, seems very small for a 22 inch self propelled. The other 2 have Briggs Intek's on them and I would assume these are probably 190cc or thereabouts?

Hi NormK,
that's a good break to have one going straight away like that. An easy profit for you there.

I hope the Briggs don't prove a problem and the Honda is up to the task!


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

Hi MF,
I think I will pull the Honda off and put it on an 18 inch push mower and get a new motor for that one. Got the carby off one of the Briggs in the ultrasonic at the moment so hopefully that will sort that one out

It looks like it was installed as a quick replacement. The Briggs are clearly larger engines up to the task.
What solution do you immerse the carb in?

Palmolive or Morning Fresh? Just kidding.

How do you make sure they're dry. Blow them out with an air gun?

Mf, I don't have to worry about them drying, the ultrasonic has a heater in it so when it comes out of the bath it is warm and dries in a minute or so. Then I give them a blow with the air through all the passage ways to make sure they are clear

G'day Norm and Mf,

Yeah can't go wrong with a Deutscher Norm ,good buy as you shouldn't have any trouble selling them once repaired.

The Y22 was released with a 5 Hp Briggs and the Honda GXV120 is 4 Hp so no harm in upgrading to a bigger motor.

The Briggs Intek's are 190 cc or technically 189cc.

Cheers
Max.

Yes Max,
I think $200 for the 3 of them is a good deal, then I can spend a bit of money on them and not worry about trying to get my money back. Helps a bit with this cost neutral hobby

Yep good deal there Norm.
It's worth fixing Deutschers slashers for a cost neutral hobby but a serviced push mower is a loss when people only want to pay $50.,. I see a lot of people just using electric push mowers around my area , must be less interest in petrol powered mowers now and a few people with solar panels and a Tesla that don't pay any power running costs.

Cheers
Max.

They would look nice with a set of day makers fitted.

Hi MF,
not sure what you mean by day makers.
Hi Max,
I'm thinking of converting the Y22 with the fixed front wheels into a single swivel front to see how that works out.

It is making me happier by the minute, the 3 motors run fine and from what I can work out the 3 transmissions work. Just waiting on 3 sets of belts from ODK and hopefully everything works My lucky day

Hi maxwestern and NormK,

that's great to hear. Not such headaches lol.

Day makers just my fancy term for a set of headlights.

Yes a single wheel at the front shouldn't be too much work to fit.
