As to the motor either a B&S. Tecumseh or Honda. cheers2

Thanks Bruce the parts list would be appreciated.I have donated but still no access to lists. Would putting a Honda motor on require much mods?

Stevea,

As to donation and access if you have used a different email address we are unable to guess who it is from.

Pleas PM me with the email address that you used to get access with.

With putting a Honda motor on the ride on (the mounting holes are the same) it is just the shaft size you need to make sure about.cheers2

Why don't you post the LINK when people ask?
Have looked at your site and as a 1st time user it is very mixed up and unorganized.
A simple link to what ever is asked for would make it easier to get started.

Lawnmower Parts List & Repair Manuals

Looking in the Forum list, then Lawn mower & parts does not show the 1st time user where the manual is (I can't find it anyway, and I have been in the computer industry for over 30 years).

Anyway, the reason I paid is that in some of the posts, people had downloaded the Rover 8 Manual, if the site no longer has the rights to download the manual, this site won't be of any help to me.

Tony,

Like all sites if you have questions it is expected that you read FAQ first which I normally do if I am having issue with a site and like you I have been using computers for over 30 years.

I had thought that we had made the forum up using the KISS principle but then again it seems that you are having issues navigating through the forum.

As to links to the area that you have posted they will not work unless you subscribe to that area. Note that you will just get a message saying access denied and that is the reason why we don't post links because members tend to get upset when they don't work.

I hope that this has clarified things for you.cheers2

Thanks for the parts manual any other manual on the colt 8 would also be appreciated . Needs to be entered into the manual section.
