I have three Atco mowers(all are 14 inch reel mowers with 2 stroke villiers motors). All three have worn out clutches. Two of them have the cone with slots and a plate arrangement. The small triangular clutch pads need replacing.
The other mower has a drum and clutch arrangment. The drum had been shattered by the previous owner.
Anyone who has spares or can point me in the right direction would be grateful.

drew2229,

I know where I can get new cone clutches these are the metal to metal clutch which were the original type. Can you post a picture of the other clutch that you are talking about as the type that you are talking about only used to use a round cork type pad not triangular I am sure.

We have a parts list for the old Atco under parts list and manuals area in this forum.

If you have a look at the forums you will find a supplier who is located in England that has some parts but they are not cheap.

Here is a picture of the clutch that I am talking about.

Bruce,

Spot on. That is it. The other two are 1954/5 models. As far as the other two go the differences are as follows:
the handles are not straight,
rope start,
petrol tank is smaller, and
the blade adjustment is done by moving the reel via the elongated holes. I will try to get a picture.
I tried to look at the parts list/manuals but was denied access.

The one in front is the one I need to replace the pads in. It has the slots in it.

drew2229,

Here is some information to all members of the forum that could help with ATCO parts etc:

E8103 is the part number of the cylinder block of the Suffolk 75g14, 75cc cast-iron engine. The 75g14 engine was made in large numbers and used on many Qualcast/Suffolk/ATCO mowers.
This engine has an oil capacity of half a pint (275mL). Use either SAE 30 or SAE 20w50 oil. Oil distribution is via splash method. There should be a thin metal oil slinger attached via the con rod big end bolts...this slinger dips into the sump oil when at its lowest point of travel.


ATCO (Atlas Chain Co) was formerly called Charles Pugh Ltd. The company has been through several structural/ownership changes recently. In 1988 it was bought by UK cement giant Blue Circle Industries, who sold off its foundry divisions. Four years later the Atco-Qualcast management staged a successful buy-out, however, German power tools and garden equipment supplier Robert Bosch GmbH purchased this new company in 1995.
The company generally used Villiers, JAP or Suffolk engines. Engines were made under licence at Revesby in Sydney between 1956-66 where Frank Jarky ( "Jackie" - sic) was warehouse manager. The business collapsed in 1967 and Villiers declined to provide assistance.
Frank Jarky acquired the entire parts inventory (including Amal
carburettors) in 1971 and serviced the industry until his death.
Your requirements will be hard to get.
Villiers is now distributed by Pivot Power Products, 10/24 Anzac Avenue (PO Box 665, Narellan) Smeaton Grange 2567; 1800 451 602 (02) 4647 6944 F: (02)
4647 9105 E: sales@pivotpowerproducts.com W: www.pivotpowerproducts.com.
Although it is unlikely that they will have parts for such old models.
ATCO and Qualcast mower parts were imported from the UK by Lee-Archer & Co,
2 Woodbine Court, Wantirna 3152; (03) 9801 8834 F: (03) 9887 0790 E:
leearcherco@telstra.easymail.com.au. However, such is small demand that their stock levels are naturally very low.
The other people who might be able to help you here are Robert Bosch, Corner Centre & McNaughton Roads (PO Box 66) Clayton 3168; (03) 9541-5555 F: (03)
9541-5587 W: www.bosch.com.au
Atco can be contacted in England at: PO Box 98, Broadwater Park, North Orbital Road, Denhan, Uxbridge, Middlessex UB9 5HJ, England, UK; +44 (844)
736 0108 W: www.atco.co.uk..
Villiersparts.co.uk, G H Shead +44 1376 326577 E: george.shead1@virgin.net may be able to help.
Perhaps some PEA readers can help you, otherwise you will have to either look overseas (England or Germany) or get them made up locally. However, most vintage engine collectors focus on the company's classic Motorcycles.
Among these is Mainline of North America, 81 U. Route 40 S.W. (PO Box 526), London, Ohio USA 43140; +1 (614) 361-5343 E: mainline_na@hotmail.com have parts for JAP engines as well as Howard GEM, Bantam and Bulldog Rotavators and Howard Twin engines.

We would like to thank Glenvale Publications for their support towards the forum.

The one on ebay is a four stroke mower.

If you are talking about the clutch after the cone clutch in the picture posted in this thread it has corks in it which operates the drive and cylinder.

I will have a look and see if I have any info on the clutch. cheers2
