Villiers 10e Question

Post  Grahamb on Sun Nov 06, 2016 8:42 pm

Hi.

I have stripped my 10e engine mainly to find out why I could feel something binding through the foot rest. Which I now think was a low oil in the gear box, due to a shot main oil seal.

while riding I have always had a metallic rattle coming from the cylinder area. So today I was having a look at the head and barrel and noticed that the dome in the cylinder head is about 10mm smaller than the bore/piston diameter . Is this standard.

I was wondering if someone on the past has put a head from a smaller engine one this 10e engine .
Or do they use the same head on say a 150cc but machine the differently?
Can anyone confirm the dome diameter of a 197cc  head  please

Regards Graham

Hi Graham
Don't know anything about the 10E engine but love your avatar.

Hope you get it sorted.

dome size

Post  piston 197 on Tue Nov 08, 2016 11:32 am

Yes the dome of the head is about 3/8" all round smaller than the bore, this is squish banding and is supposed to be there, the smaller cylinder heads from the 150cc and 125cc engines have a smaller PCD for the bolts and will not fit the 197cc engine

Thanks for the reply .
I will measure the squish to see what it is, are you aware of the correct clearance and is it the done thing to taper the squish band towards the dome a couple of degrees.

squish

Post  piston 197 on Tue Nov 08, 2016 3:25 pm

I skimmed the head and angled the squish about 15 degrees on a trials bike some years back and it made no difference at all ! You can have a go if you wish, but my experience tells me it will make no discernible difference ?

I'll see what the squish measure and go from there.

I was reading up on squishes and came across a sentence saying something like, insufficient or incorrect squish can sound like a tin of stones being rattled . Which is the sound I have had ever since I got the bike.

Rode a friend FB the other week ( with 8e engine) ,had nothing like the level of sound emanating for the cylinder/head. (reason for this post)
