Hi Chiefy,

Just working on a MK25 myself at the moment - see my other post:

http://www.stationaryengineforum.net/t8533-villiers-mk25

Mine has a second plate on the cowl which Foden helpful said identified it as an Air Ministry and has a Villiers carburetter.  Mine seems to be in Air Force colours - Azure blue I think.  

Yours could be the original Villiers green - RAL 6001 from RAL Classic range is close. My local car paint shop quoted me twelve quid for a large aerosol.  In the end, I just picked something close off the shelf. As for primer,  Screwfix No Nonsense Red Oxide is good IMHO. I use a brush for primer rubbed down with scotch-brite, or similar pad, between coats. Post some pictures if you get a chance.

Almost forgot - my MK25 is missing the tank. Could you please let me know dimensions i.e. diameter and length as I may have to get one fabricated if I can't find another.

the only real difference from mk20 to a mk25 is nothing nothing in tin work casting carbs ect, it is only the size of the cylinder bore and piston, even the conrod is the same,
mk20 is 63mm bore 206cc
mk 25 is 70mm bore 256.5cc
hope this helps
