Hi SB,

I was looking for a 4 stroke motor for my first build, I have a slight dislike for Chinese 2/ kits ! Plus I wanted a better look for a BTR.
Anyway came across a pair of villiers stationary engines and promptly won them EBay
Motor no1 was the best condition was the better condition, some investigation quickly ended with a no spark, it could be a broken down old HT lead, but I have a feeling it problems run deeper. Motor no2 had a really weird spot when turned over and an abrupt stop, head off and a great surprise and a perfect outcome. A 3 mm biscuit of carbon sat neatly on the piston ! A carb clean later and fresh fuel and she fires into life. I'll start a thread when I'm home. Apologies Iain for jumping on your welcome thread. And welcome !
If you don't know the answer, say nothing.. it looks like your withholding the answer
