Villiers mk12 ?

Post by ray fisher on Wed Jan 13 2016, 19:42

I have acquired a villiers engine without a name plate or any serial numbers that I can see.
As far as I can tell it looks like 55mm bore and 50mm stroke and has V5188 cast into the engine block.
The engine was originally attached to a water pump but the last owner threw that away because It was corroded into one solid lump and in his words unsalvagable.
Is there any way to confirm the type and age of this engine ?

Hi ray,

A picture would be good, lots of Villiers fans on here and they would tell you straight off what engine you have, or you could just google
Villiers engines and search through images until you see something like the one you have.

Regards


Richard

The exhaust is one I had spare in the shed and the grooved pulley is a new fitting held on with an old water pump impeller until I can machine up a locking nut to fit the crankshaft. I plan to run an alternator of the pulley which is also acting as a flywheel because the original was destroyed trying to get it off to access the coil etc.( At the moment It's running on a 12volt car coil and battery.

Hi Ray,

Going by bore size its a Mk 12, here is a link for the manual [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Have you looked at L S engineering for exhaust and coils you can get for around twenty odd pounds.

Agree with Richard,  bore of 55mm is a MK12 - MK10 has bore of 50mm. Both have 50mm stroke.
Have also had great service from L&S.
The coil you need is Part No M.1634E which you can find with your search engine of choice. The real thing will set you back around £65 - you can get Taiwanese copies for about half that amount but you will need to solder on a copper shim to connect to HT lead.
If you need a manual and spare parts book let me know.
Best of luck.
