  1. The progress

    I cut a checkered plate and fitter rubber round the edges. Keeps the floor tidyer and looks better I think. Just the deck to do now but it's not bad so contemplating leaving it will see.

    The A-81 is coming along nicely, 5 months down the line I'm nearly there.

  5. Exhaust back pressure

    Thank you skipper a very thorough reply which explained it very well. Much appreciated buddy. 🖒
  6. Exhaust back pressure

    Gonna put a custom exhaust on my a-81 will it need back pressure and can it pretty much be a straight through pipe? Cheers Matt
  7. Bigger carb ?

    It's just finding a carb that fits 😅
  8. Bigger carb ?

    No just wondered if it would give it a bit more grunt? Need new air intake and exhaust aswell. Apart from that it's spot on. Just needs seat redoing , respray and restickered.
  9. Bigger carb ?

    Does anyone know if any of the bigger carbs from the 12hp plus Stratton engines will fit on the 8hp a-81 engine? And where to source parts? Cheers matt

  13. Where to start

    Hi everyone just bought myself an a-81, never had one before and want it to be my project. Want to like new. Seen one on YouTube with led lights on and a nice exhaust induction kit. The exhaust on it is knackered so defiantly needs a new one. It runs great and cuts well. Also is it an easy task to take the mower deck off bottom ? Also how can I tell what year it is? Many thanks Matt
  14. Sticker set

    Brilliant thank you
  15. Hi does anyone know if you can buy the sticker set for the A-81, wanting to restore one but didn't know if someone did the sticker set? Cheers Matt
