Villiers - The V Engine.

Post by Woodsman on Thu Jul 23 2015, 09:06

Started dismantling our latest engine and discovered a small pull operated lever on the rear of the magneto back plate. Can't see where it should pivot or what it should be attached to. Can anyone shed any light? Also, does anyone have a manual / parts list?

Ah, just had another look. Could it be a massively over-engineered 'kill switch' to earth the LT side of the coil?

More dismantling of our Villiers V engine. Looks like someone has had a go and then given up. The gasket between the carburettor was torn and some numpty had used liquid gasket to fix - thereby blocking all the little orifices!! Having got everything soaking in thinners we had a look in the float bowl. Pretty gungy at the bottom but that will clean. However we'd like some advice on the float/needle arrangement. It looks like the needle, which passes through the float, is loose and was held in place by a couple of spring wires locating in a groove in the needle.
Obviously the wires have disintegrated.





Anyone have any experience of this sort of repair? Any and all advice gratefully received.

Hi paul,

Possibly have 2 ideas for you, the lister D has almost the same principal for holding needle in float and if one will fit the V
I'm sure someone on here would have a spare somewhere, the D float is 40cms across and 40cms from connection on needle to bottom,
image attached.



My other idea is to remove the old wire off the float, get a small paper clip as they are quite springy and make up something like image 1. I used wire as a guide,



Then solder to float as per image 2, I have marked where to solder but you may only need to solder each end, so I would try that first. if you have a dremmel you could grind flat the area of contact to needle or enough that it fits on needle, because the straight wire is overlapped it will push needle into slot on other wire, if this makes sense.

Made a start on the V engine. Now need to sort out the carbuetter float and splash out on a Taiwanese magneto coil.

Hi Paul,
They look nice in blue I was glad I painted mine blue but tried to keep to its original colour as I presume you are, looking good.
