Default Identification for a Villiers engine

Hello all,

we searched for 2 weeks for an identification for a petrol drived Villiers engine we have to identify for two old gentelman, but we can not find a save solution.
A friend told me this forum and I think itīs our last hope.
So here are the technical facts (I hope theyīre correct translated):
- Producer: Villiers
- sidecontrolled
- little engraved Number: CM 948
- foundation: 35cm x 16,5cm
- height with spark plug: 47,5cm
Encolsed I will upload some pictures of it.
I hope that you understand my request and excuse my bad english.
I would be very glad if someone knows the name of the engine!

Kind reguards

Looks like a Villiers Mk40 to me, the external points box gives it away.

But presumably a more modern version of the Mk40 like the Mark 440H from the mid 1960's ??
If you can get a wire down the spark plug hole the stroke is 82mm.

Hi,
please excuse my late answer, but we had some communication problems, because we donīt have the engine at home.
I think "sidecontrolled" was the wrong word, i think "sidevalved" is better (hope you understand it) and cause of that it is impossible to quantifie the spark plug hole like you recommended it.
Are there any pictures I could upload so that you can identifie the engine clearly?
Thanks for your help!

I thought that it was a C30 like the one on my generator in the shed but mine has a different carb .

I think a MK40 just like the one on Georges website

The casting pattern on the crank case is the same .
