Hoover Junior A
« on: April 16, 2015, 12:19:03 AM »
After years of looking I finally got hold of a 1354A   ;) ;D




Needs a bit of TLC but was only 15 and just up the A5 in Walsall.

Wrong flex, no drive belt (sorted) motor bearings are a bit rumbly, might be OK after clean and re oil.

Bag has had it.



And handle release mechanism has worn, so you don't have to press peddle to pull handle back, quite common.



Bulb well gone



But all fixable, Finding a blue bag might be a problem though.  Still picks up  :))

Oooh that's beautiful! The cords easy,  at least theheadlight lens are in good order! Motor bearings are on eBay too iirc, I bought some for the 652 on there. Shame about the bag though.  I have a blue 1334 bag with a fully seized zip,  won't bin it though...

I had one once but dropped something on it in the garage and smashed the lens and blue hood.  Regret that now!

Got 2 bulbs for 1.45,  will just keep eye out for a blue bag, got my eye on some bearings, have another junior with shot bearings, bloody thing still works though. Handle catches still available on line.
