Doesn't the manual give you the carb type?, I have manuals for my Villiers 4 strokes and they list the types of carb for each engine.

Check the manual I sent. The three carb variants each use the same washer Part no. V107. Same, I believe, as used in four stroke MK20/25 with Villiers carb. They are sometimes a tight fit so try a little lubricant

Thanks woodsman & Robotstar5. My head wasn't with it at the time and completely forgot about the manual you sent.

You could be right air-cooled. Another bowl washer came and it's the same as the first.

My bowl washer measures 52.38mm. The ones i'm receiving are 49.50mm.

I wonder if a soak in water would make it expand a little - and maybe soften it a bit?

The gaskets are too small to stretch. I'm going to make one with gasket paper.
