Any idea which Villiers?

Any idea which Villiers?

Post by DanBoy on Thu Feb 23 2012, 15:16

I've just bought this on ebay. I know it's an old Villiers but don't know which model. I haven't collected it yet so I don't know if there are any numbers / identifiers on it. Anybody got any ideas?

Yes a MK 15, the only Over Head Valve Villiers, apart from the diesels of course. There is a siezed one at the farm where I store my caravan, but the farmer wont part with it because "it will be valuable one day", yeah, not in your lifetime it wont! Mad

Fetched it today Smile Turns over nice and free. I'll be seeing my brother-in-law tonight to ask him if he can cut me some steel to make up tank straps. Anyone got any idea of the optimum length for each strap, given that I shall try and get a few dozen to fit different engines/tanks. They will need to be bent and drilled but it might help a few people out on here.

Another Villiers to identify. Not the greatest of pics. Engine is marked 18 8B 81 379. The carburettor is a V648C. I believe it is a two stroke and from the size I would reckon around 100cc to 150cc. Probably the lower. It's not a Midget and I don't think that it is a 541 either.
