I'm a bit new to stationery engines and have just acquired a
Villiers MK25 as a garden machine. I want to use it for it's
original intention. It is a Mayfield 2-wheel tractor. Image
Anyway, I have it firing (backfiring). And there is a spark at
the plug. Also, the compression seems good.
However, the thing just won't run. I am sure it's the timing and
I have found the settings for timing, spark plug gap points gap
etc from the internet.
I just don't know where to start to find the TDC mark, - or what
I have to dismantle, and how to set it.
I can follow instructions, but I havent been able to source
either a manual for this engine, or a knowledgeable person
patient enough to talk me through it. I'm hoping this might
change by posting in the group!
Anyone fancy imparting some valuable knowledge?
Appreciate ANY help.
