No seriously that is a great first project and the start of a slippery slope for you I am afraid ( fairly soon you will want a diesel one ) .

A PM to Frank ( Frankieflintstone ) and you will find out all you need to know .
If it is Autotruck related then Frank is the man to make friends with .

As for factory colours then red and black sounds about right to me .



Steve

I'm pretty certain red and black are original colors, but didn't want to say until I'd checked, but...

Stick the multimeter between the HT lead and some bare metal on the engine with it set to about 20000 ohms setting (or something about that)
Tell us what reading you get

Question engine model

went ot to the truck for a closer inspection at it since i had the day off and sorted a few things like the throttle stick woldnt stay in the one place when i first got it you always had to hold it lol but i tightened the screw on it up a wee bit more at it seems fine now and it also idles like it never did before the de-compression switch on it was slack aswell so i have fixed that and sorted a few cables that were needing re- routed

cant find my multimeter though hunted all over the place but will keep looking for it

also cleaned up a few badges on the engine and on the steering plate hoping to find an engine number/size but after cleaning all the oil/grease off it revealed only two good badges out of three i have uploaded the badges that are on the engine and all that is possible to read on them the large silver one on the side of the engine most of the writing has worn away on that and has only got two sets of numbers left on it

if any of you guy's can tell what size of villiers engine this is by looking at these picture please let me know

if you cant ake out what the numbers are just ask and i will tell you
