Default Re: Hello from Bristol England

Thanks for the warm welcome guys!
The engine is a Villiers 148cc mk8c (I think-further research required) which was made from 1930 to 1949 so it is a little later than I thought. Old mowers are quite common on ebayuk
I paid 10 for mine and it has also provided a nice torpedo(ish) tank and brass fuel tap, as well as a load of bar and plate for the build. Also a rather nice bakerlite knob for the belt drive lever.

I am going to try and mock it up later, work allowing and will post some pics

Cheers Simon
