G'day all

I am looking for a starter pulley and the plastic grill surrounding it for my Atom Mofast 15".
Apart from these and the throttle cable the mower looks complete.
Does have a damaged pulley.

I would like to get it running again ( stuck solid at present so that is a challenge ).

Any help with these parts would be appreciated.

Cheers
Tassie Dan

G'day Dan and Bruce,

I've seen parts and mowers come up on eBay but it's a waiting game as they don't come up often.

If I wanted to repair the mower quickly ,I'd get the pulley welded and if the motor is rusted solid ,I'd put the barrel and piston in
a bucket of white vinegar for a couple weeks.

Cheers
Max.

G'day Bruce

I am having trouble getting photos to go for some reason. That's why I did not send them with the post. I will have another go.

Cheers
Dan

G'day Max

Thank you for the reply. The pulley also seems to be plastic as is the surrounding grill.
I will have another look at it but at first glance it looked plastic ( is pretty dirty so I will check it tomorrow ).

Cheers
Dan

I will get a better photo when I get to where the mower is.

This is a better picture of the Atom. The pulley and surround are both very hard plastic.

First time I have seen a plastic pulley on a mower. I would not even expect to see that on a Chinese machine.

I guess it's a matter of finding an Atom being stripped for parts. This part probably gets damaged before others though.

Cheers
Dan

Hi Dan,

If you're not worried about having an original starter pulley you may be able to fit a metal pulley from another motor ,I'm
not sure if a repair would be strong enough without trying it , but it would need painting black to hide the repair.

Another option is to look for an old outboard motor and you could use a recoil starter.

Cheers
Max.
