8e, 9e cranks

Post  Andrewwoey on Wed Sep 07, 2016 6:46 pm

Are the 8e and 9e cranks interchangeable?

Thank you.
I have seen a new full circle crank on the net for sale and it just states Villiers 197cc. Looks like another dealer that does not know what he/she is selling. Mad

As far as I know, no-one commercially produced a full circle crank for an 8E ( nor do you need one) I have seen cranks from Go-Karts with alloy wedges bolted in to make them full circle, but never seen a full set of 8E full circle cranks.
Cranks for 9E in full circle form were made by Alpha among others for the motorcross and Go-Kart market, to replace the original as a straight swap and with a modified r/hand shaft to take motoplat ignition
A 9E crank will always have a keyed flywheel taper, an 8E will not, width of crank and lengths and design of shafts are different too .

Thank you Piston

That's great information. I am still learning about Villiers and British bikes. I have a few books now and learning lots from the forum.
