Default Villiers mk25a Two Man Chain Saw

I've done it again, I've got myself another project . This time I've got a Villiers mk25a two chain saw. The blade is with it but was too big to bring in the house .

Any new images will be added to this link: https://postimg.org/gallery/1y5p3k46o/

I have to admit that, much to the amusement of some less than complimentary clubmates, I like the smaller aircooled engines that are still attatched to their implements, pumps etc and own some myself.
They make for an interesting exhibit, and can be restored on the kitchen table in the warmth of the house as well! Progress with be watched.

Pete.

Looks unusual with twin exhausts on a small single.

I've always associated the 'Mark' engine types with the four-stroke industrial engines, first time I've seen it on a two-stroke.

Mk25 is a side-valve base-mount four stroke engine.

The Mk and C prefix is normally 4 stroke and the C suffix, e.g. 25C is 2 stroke.

Nice saw , ex WD I would think , 44 / 9 I think is the date, 250cc. I have a number of these they would have come in a box with all the spares and accessories with the bar and helper handle in another box. The two rings on the handle were for attaching a leather strap to go across your shoulders.
