Default Howard Junior Mk 11

Got this out and has not run in years, filled it from a drum marked Ampol standard from a sealed 44 that was at the back of the shed and it started right up on the ancient leaded petrol! said to be a original MK11 but can't remember seeing them on iron wheels? the wheels seem a little different in profile compared against the standard junior?, certainly a pleasant machine to operate compared against the standard Junior.

Dear Typac,

I’m sure that you have a spare “44 of leaded petrol in your shed as most collectors would.(who doesn’t) I’guess it is next to the drums of power kerosene -just in case !!!!

All part of the collecting bug I guess - keep up the good work and good luck with the garden. I always use leaded fuel when I grow spuds .

Cheers Justin .

When the mkll came out there was quite a cross over of different set ups. I have seen lots of different variations especially on the engines. The original buyer may have even requested steel wheels or they may have been swapped at some point. Either way a very nice machine and In good condition. Just remember to use sae50 engine oil or you wont get enough oil pressure and will wear the big end out and they are hard to find.

Hi Justin, unfortunately no power kero, the petrol was in the shed long before I acquired the place and the drum looks not the best so I thought I should do something with it before it lets go, the garden is well under way but the proceedings have aroused the interest of some of the locals, see image below, so hopefully the chain wire will keep them out! as well as the Pademelons and brush turkeys.

note the wheels have 6 spokes, same as the standard pressed steel with hard rubber type. most pre-mk2 wheels had 5 spokes.
yes, certainly a less common type, but correct original wheels.
the only unusual thing about this machine which i can see is the muffler,
which does not match any book pictures i have.
but it does look very practical, can we have more photos of that?
do you think it is an original type or 'homemade'?

nice to see original decal with the white still there.

note you have a gear lever lock handle not shown in these early books, it appears on machines from around the middle of their production run based on serial numbers.
actually i cant find it in any books,
the 1959 instructions book also only has same photos of early machine throughout,
the 1972 parts book is only a new cover on the 1953 parts book,
with 1 extra page for the oversize pistons / rings / gudgeons that were available.
does anybody have any books which show the lever lock handle, especially as a parts list?

good to see it is still in use, that is what they were made for. cheers Rod.

The neighbours asked to borrow ours. I delivered the non reverse able one. They never asked again but they did ask how I manuvered ours in where the veggie patch is. I just told them they're all Nancy boys and need some more Wheatbix in the mornings to be able to get it around.
I've never did let on we have one or 2 with reverse.
Cheers Scott

Thanks Rod, noticed the five and six spoke difference the other day and when in the shed later will get some pics of the muffler, if it is homemade it certainly was nicely built.
