Default Villiers engine, but which model?

Morning all,
I have picked up a villiers stationary engine this morning, as a restoration project, however the data plate is missing from the flywheel cover. Could someone please let me know which model it is as I need to source a few parts for it. It has the following markings on it;
flywheel is says "THE V MAGNETO" and has "M-1559, M-1560, M-1561" stamped on it
Cylinder head has "BM103" and the crankcase "AM189"

On a seperate note, the fuel tank is rusty on the inside, has anyone got any tips of cleaning it out and coating the inside to prevent rust (either with paint or some similar product)

Cheers
Dave

Default Tank cleaner

Easy way to scour out a tank,---- Let your dog off the chain and throw the CHAIN in the tank, along with half a cup of kero or degreaser, put the lid on and shake, rattle and roll! There are tank sealers from the auto parts shops, very good, but expensive for a small tank. If it does not leak, keep it either very full, or very empty and rust will not be a big problem. Regards, Combustor.

Regarding the rusty tank.
Just got some of this from Ebay. Not tried it yet, but it was cheap, so worth 'the risk'. Just need a cheap epoxy type sealer now.

Anybody know of anything cheap for sealing the inside of the tank of a petrol can (old steel one)
