well!good informations!but there is a recycle of oil or it is lost?the rubber of the pipes is very dry so i should change it!
for try if the engine runs well i put oil directly in the carter and the i watch if the oil runs well trough the glass?

oiling system

Post  piston 197 on Tue Jan 31, 2017 5:49 pm

Worth taking the pipes off at the engine and forcing some oil through with an oil gun, again any rubber pipe joints will have to be good and air tight as the system works on crankcase pressure pressurising the oil tank to feed the oil, likewise the oil tank cap will need a decent seal to prevent the oil pressure escaping.
Take off the pipes and feed il through them, and check all joints , them prime all pipes full before attempting to start

SAE 30

Post  piston 197 on Tue Jan 31, 2017 6:55 pm

In the days this oiling system was designed there was no 2 stroke oil, it was designed to work on straight 30 oil, again not a mineral oil, just an engine oil the same as you would put in a four stroke system, adjust the metering screw to just give a blue haze colour to the exhaust, too much smoke = too much oil feed

Low tension

Post  piston 197 on Fri Feb 10, 2017 7:25 am

The Low tension should be a single wire from the Ignition coil to the points ?
The High tension should be the wire from the ignition coil to the plug

The lighting coils should be joined together, a single wire exits from the back of the flywheel, this runs to the lighting switch and then to the headlight, tail light and earth to provide direct lighting

Flywheel removal

Post  piston 197 on Mon Feb 20, 2017 8:21 am

The centre nut on the flywheel is self extracting, it will undo about 1 turn and then go tight, it needs to be undone past this point and it will self extract,Villiers supplied a "hammertite" spanner for this, it had a hex one end for the nut and a solid other end to hit with a hammer, ( anti clockwise to undo) You do need to lock up the other side of the engine, a small wedge of wood between the primary chain and sprocket will usually suffice ? When refitting the flywheel, make sure you have it in the correct place as it is not keyed, it should be positioned so that points just start to open when piston is 5/16" before piston is at top of stroke (TDC)
