Re: Land belt drive on Atco Ensign B17
I seem to think that the Ensign B17 was a development using the chassis of the Punch 43DL that first appeared in the early 1980s..itself a stretched version of the chassis from the late 1960s Super Colt/Super Punch.
Given the quantity of machines that have used this chassis over the years I would expect all good lawnmower agents to have the belt as a stock item.
I would expect the land roll drive belt would be Qualcast/Atco part no. F016L08476. But do check this
as I am ever further distant form the mower world these days...http://www.atco.co.uk/serviceagents.php http://www.qualcast.co.uk/qual-serviceagents.php
To find someone locally.
I have occasionally in the past seen some pattern or generic belt replacements that were not as good as The genuine article in this application...some in theory correct length but slightly wrong section...as it requires to be fully correct dimensions to give correct clutch action.
All the best,
