Hi there,

Just wondering if anyone can help out in any way on where to get those little plastic bushes for the lower part of the handle where it goes into the main body of the mower on the Victa VC160 model. I have been to a mower shop and hardware shops and even those specialty bearing shops and no one has been able to help or even tell me where to get something like that. Any help would be much appreciated.

Regards,

Converse

Converse,

The part number that you are looking for is CH83146A. That is the nylon bush that goes into the frame and the lug of the handle sits into.

Unless it is the one for the latch which locks the handle and that part number is CH82852A.

I will have to ask around to see if I can locate one but because the mower was made in the 1970's it is going to be hard to find.

Let me know which one that you are after and I will see what I can do. cheers2

Hi Bruce,

Thanks for the help I am actually after both of them as they are stuffed there was a little bit left on one side so that's how I knew they had some sort of plastic bushing there when they were new. The latches are ok it's just those main nylon bushes that i'm after for the handle.

Thanks again for all the help

Cheers,

Converse

Hi Guys,

Thanks for all the help yes I am still after the bushes if they are good usable ones. It would be great also while your looking at the same model mowers if theres any good usable air filter housings or i'm mainly after the white cap for the air filter housing as mines pretty stuffed also a good usable throttle control lever, The plastic housing on mine has almost nearly worn away but I guess it is like 35 years old but it's worth a try if you happen to come across anything like that while your looking for the bushes. Thanks again for all the help.

Cheers,

Converse

Hi Convers I will be down the farm tomorrow Friday and have a look for some bushes . I found one here at home but not sure if its one of them or not. It a split bush and I dont see why a split bush would be needed down there.
Incidentall the handle lug I found sitting on the workbench does not have a bush on it .Whta apperas to be a bush is actuallu part of the shaft which is turned with a ridge which makes it look like abush .I cleand it with a wire brush and all was revealed Cheers for now Joe

Hi all Re the bushes in question . This is a bit of a mystery. I dismantled a VC today and am at a loss to understand these bushes at the moment.
After removing the nut that holds the bottom of the handle thru the bush and removing the handle lower half. I see the bush has a nylong ring on each side. After fiddling arond for a while it take to the nylon ring with a sharpish screwdriver and chisel it off.Then I pushed the bush out using a small socket a a punch ,expecting to find the bush to be in two halves but it is a one piece item . The bush , with a nylon ring on each side has the appearance of being a2 piece effort with half being from each side but this is not so.
It could be that a nylon washer is place on one end and has become fused to the bush over the years. . If I can masterthe art of uploading pics to this site then I will send pics of the bush and the flange I chiselled off.
Perhaps Bruce can chec the Parts listing and see how it is described as I do not have a VC Parts list Cheeers Joe

Hi all Here I am again replying to myself Just sent 3 shouts. .About these bushes I will get a VC and cut out the section of the chassis and reve the bush or bushes whatever is in there with surgeon like skill when I get back from my little trip which starts next Monday . Would have liked to have heard from Bruce as to how many bushes are shown for each side . I cannot figure out the arrangement with the bushes in place with a rim on each side ,something like a cotton reel bobbin Chees Joe

Hi Guys,

Thanks again for all the help with these bushes and I'm not sure myself how they look like I just thought they are a nylon bush with a lip on one side that just goes in the hole on the mower base and then the handle lug goes into that and it's held there by an e-clip or something as there is a lined groove on the handle lugs where an e-clip or something of the like holds it in place on the mower base. Well I am just going by what I can see on the mower and I am only assuming how these things used to be.



Cheers,

Converse

Hi Convers Good to see that you are watching whats going on here . The mower that I took the bushes out was a VC model and the lower handle lugs had nuts on them If I master the pics idea then I will post some pics . Going away next week for 2 weeks but have got myself a laptop to so may be keeping a look at the board if I get a chance Cheers Joe

Hi Guys,

I finally worked out how to add a few pictures with imageshack to this forum so I have taken a few shots of the lawnmower base where the holes near the top are for the nylon bushes which I am trying to find. I also have a picture of the lower handle lug that goes into them with the groove in the end where a circlip or something holds them in place. I hope this helps out a little more on the particular nylon bushes that i'm trying to find. Both sides look the same so I think they are both the same size bushes that i'm after.
