Today was a bit of a disaster !!!
On my biggest non ride on lawn,( normally 2 hours 20, but 4 hours today ) which is stuffed with Moss but customer wont do anything about it thinking must ring and order new Weibang. Carried on and into orchard where there was so much growth I was having to spread rather than bag with my Mountfield sp 505 when I came to a grinding halt. On investigation, drive shaft had manged to chew it's way into side plate where the drive cogs are mounted and then sheared off !!!
Let customer know and also the last one of the day that would be back Monday now. Hope to persuade Weibang dealer to lend me his whilst he gets me a new one, Legacy 48 pro BBC, could't talk to him today as away and his mechanic wouldn't make that call.
Got home to fire up the spare Viking and cant get it to go for love nor money. It will run with the old trick of thimble fuel of fuel down the air in take but that's it. Had filter off, fuel out and new in , checked it getting to carb but will not run, any ideas in case dealer wont play ball tomorrow, he will have Mountfield to mend if he goes for the loan suggestion ..
