Villiers fuel tap refurbishment

Post by bluedog on Mon May 20 2013, 13:19

My Villiers MK10 brass fuel tap leaks when closed. Is there a way I can refurbish it?

Not sure of the exact design but ...

The tap probably comes apart by removing a cotter pin, and sliding the "bit that turns" out of the body.

There may be O rings in which case replace them and clean the bore of the body.

But if there aren't any, you need to lap the tap into the body with valve grinding paste.

Once complete, reassemble with some grease.

As Kev says you can buy the replacement plunger on ebay, all they do is put a new cork washer on it. You can also buy the cork washers, I tried to fit one and it kept splitting no matter how much I soaked it etc. Crying or Very sad Doing something wrong. Laughing Laughing Laughing
