Villiers Coil

Post by chiefy on Wed Apr 13 2016, 09:35

HI i am on the lookout for a coil for Villiers magneto the MK20/MK25 model I see on E BAY there some offered these appear to be from the far east and do not have the button on top like the Villiers they appear to have a tab sticking up, as anyone used these coils and if so what was your thoughts on them. Chiefy.

I'm going to give one a try. Ordered mine here:

You can get the proper job with the button but more than twice the price:

Greetings Paul,Thanks for that how are you going to get round the coil not having a button on the barrel are you going to bend over the tab or will you solder a button onto the tab,I would be interested to hear your thoughts on the coil when you come to fix it on your engine. Best Regards Keith.

Hi Keith,
Sadly I've been laid up with a bad back. Feeling better now but going away for a couple of weeks so won't get chance to work on engines. Will post when I get back into the workshop.

Hi Paul, Sorry to hear about the bad back I do have bouts of bad back the last time it happened I had just had a shave and was rinsing my face when it went, enjoy your break. Best Wishes Keith.

OK - back in the workshop!

1) Solder fly lead to salvaged button..



2) Solder other end to HT terminal..



3) Stick button down with Gorilla glue..



4) Wrap with gummed tape to keep the dirt out..



Only issue I found was that the iron core was slightly smaller diameter than original so was a bit loose in the magneto cheeks. Just packed it out with some tape.

Now have nice fat spark  Smile

Hi Paul, Sounds like a successful outcome apart from the smaller core which you overcame with tape. Thanks for that Keith.
