you can paint them any colour you like Kev!

serious note though, i have seen some paint them Mid Brunswick green, but i dont think that is the correct shade, seems to be the popular one though.

Cheers.

Hi All,

Ive had a look through the paint code thing that ive got but Villiers is not mentioned in the list.

I think burnswark green is a bit heavy for them engines.

Would they not be painted the same colour as the equipment that they were operating?

ie, Blue engine for a Blue generator, just a thought.

yes they are painted to match the equipment but underneath mine are either satin grey PRIMER I THINK!!!

Hi Kev,

Am i right and saying the austen green was a fairly light green (mint type colour) ?

The colours that you describe they may have been used by the MoD.

Hi Kev,

the austin colour might be along the right lines, something like light-brusnwick-green might be in the ballpark, its not as dark a colour as the mid brunswick that petter and lister use.

Cheers.

hi there paul
looks like you have a good collection of engines
i have villiers 25hs from 1956 she seems older than she looks
the pullstart pulley is marked with 8/1956 but my flywheel is brass and stamped 9/48 they are marked by punch and are OEM ON FLYWHEEL AND FUELTANK
not the normal AJH of ALL my other villiers 1960 and up any idea why this is
thanks kev
