Merlin Progress.

Post  MrTweedy on Tue Aug 19, 2014 5:59 pm

Hello all.

Sent my flywheel and carb away to Villiers Services last week for remagetising/reconditioning and had a call today to say I should expect them back tomorrow.

Slowing getting my tired old '49 Merlin up and running so looking forward to seeing if they make a difference, even a small improvement would be great.

Regards

Matt

Got my parts back from Villiers this morning and put everything back together with no problems. Started first kick and runs really nicely with just a few tweaks here and there.
All in all I'm very happy, great service from Villiers Services.

The remagnetised flywheel has made a huge difference, seems to have solved the warm starting "Villiersitis" problem too.
