Removing Villiers exhaust

Post by Woodsman on Thu Jun 30 2016, 13:20

Just picked up a Villiers MK20 and MK12/12 RG. The MK12/2 is missing a lot of parts but the MK20 is pretty much all there - can't argue for eight quid. I'll need an exhaust - as usual Sad and a Governor lever. Sounds a bit wheezy so suspect a ring or two may be shot. However first obstacle is getting the existing home brewed exhaust off. Some numpty has welded a short pipe to the old boss but included the nuts in the operation!



Any ideas as to how to proceed? Don't want to end up shearing the studs off.

Hi Paul,

I suggest you cut existing pipe off as close as you can to boss, then use a metal cutting disc on grinder or hacksaw to cut across each side of the boss leaving the part of the boss with studs attached, you should then be able to unscrew the studs with the bit of boss still attached, hope that makes sense, Regards Richard

Hi Rich, (I assume)

I was thinking much the same but without oxy/acetylene to get everything red hot a few times I'm worried about shearing the studs. They are tiny !
As regards your offer of bits I'll check exactly what is missing and get back to you. Many thanks.
