Default Villiers two stroke and Capstan

I collected this unit yesterday for my Brother who Bought it off Trade Me our local auction site.

In the afternoon I had a play with it. There was petrol in it and it started right away. It smoked a lot so there must have been enough oil in the mixture.

It is a neat little unit but I have no idea what it was used for. My Brother is into vintage boats and thought it would good for loading his boat out of the water on to the trailer.

Here is a photo and a not very good video.

Wonder how many deer that has hauled into the back of a truck
Very popular with lone stalkers in the highlands who don't have any other means to haul a carcass up steep hills, or into a truck.

Wolseley WD 8, Stuart Turner P5, Maytag 92, Maytag 72. Lister LT1.

That's a nice little set up, I wonder what sort of weight the capstan will pull?

I will have to keep a look out for a capstan as it would make a change from pumps or generators seen at shows

If you can't fix it with a hammer, it's an electrical problem.
