I am putting a mates good motor on a good base for him, and I get parts and have 3 motors and a good base to make one up for myself, as well as a a 4 stroke to sell..........
Just soaking a base in the molasses bath. And will do decokes on both motors.
keep busy

Hi Speedy, I'm finding they are a very sought after mower these days, I got one running for a bloke yesterday (you wouldn't believe it but the float needle was the problem) and a mate with his mowing business found one recently and he is bringing that over today because he wants to add that to his stable.
Well done and keep those Victas running

Hi Millsy let me know where you are, I'm want to have a look. I don't sell these to collectors, anything I build goes back to working hard as they did when they were first built. Some of these are being used be contractors to do a particular job, they are nice and light and can work on any angle. I prefer the plastic carb ones because they are so reliable and I have to hunt around after the barrels with the plastic carbs so I can swap them over if they have the earlier carbs.
Millsy I sell these for $80 reconditioned and in excellent working condition, I fully strip the chassis, paint it and put it back together with a lifetime warranty (my lifetime not the mowers, most of these will still be going long after I'm gone) Not sure what yours are like but this gives you a general idea.

Gotta keep doing things Speedy, keep the brain working, I struggle with my injuries and have to rest sometimes during the day but the challenge of getting the next motor running and another Victa saved drives me on.
