Introduced in 1967, made for about 20 years. Which make of magneto do you have on your F15 ?

The magneto will be either a Villiers or a Wico.
The carb will be either a Villiers B10/1 B10/2 or B1620.

No idea what /42/01/ means.

Magneto is a Wico and carb is a B10/1. Phillip i dont suppose you would have a spare carb this one is missing the filter and the clips to hold it on. Bill.

You have a choice of filters, oil bath or paper element as below...

B10 filters by Robert Starr, on Flickr

There is also a much more compact gauze disc type filter for the B10/2 carb.
Google "Villiers carb spares" will bring up a few suppliers.

OK, Bill that helps.
The Wico magneto version of the F15 is approximately 1973 to 1985.
This second incarnation of the F15 also used the Amal 519 carb as well as the Villiers B10/1.

The small red filter and clips are available as indicated by Stuart.
