If fuel is coming out of the carb them it's not the non-return.

Most likely it's choked or the spark is weak. Is it still on an igniter? Might be worth pulling it out and cleaning it up.

Chris is still about, but he's rubbish at answering calls or emails.

I'm with you on that statement, Merv. And they're all worthy of an attempt at restoration, though I admit some really are beyond it!

Were R&T in collusion with overseas manufacturers at all?

Very Blackstone-esque in looks, and the style of piston is just the same as used on springers and DB's.

I look forward to following this thread, Merv. Nice to see you're as at home with a common...

It's a nice looking handwheel, but it will always look like one. I've seen many model engines, mostly steam, using turned down valve wheels. In my opinion they spoil the overall look.

There must...

I had the same translating some technical/scientific drawings and guides from Italian into English. Regular translation guides were utterly useless.

I've seen a few with that, usually smaller ones. I'm told a splash of 'petrol' is required occasionally. Quite why I don't know.

Don't you think that carb will spoil the look of the engine? If nothing else it's a bit big.

However, it also stops the fuel...

I don't know who dated it to 1917. I'd say it's a more likely 1914/15. Smaller diameter flywheels and straight striker for igniter...
