Sadly have to say its better engineered... and more mechanic friendly, no slot screws on the crank case!

If anyone fancies a good read about the Vincent industrial engine have a look here:-

Who would have thought it was original designed for Qualcast, it surpassed a similar Villiers unit in every aspect, but still was not taken up by Qualcast.

Bit of a question guys, orginaly these would have had a top feed BEC Carburettor with a 46 jet and a 10mm choke.
I've kindly been offered a BEC AB2, bottom feed, 48 jet and 10mm choke, do you think this will suit the engine ok?

Picked up the carb yesterday as well as a small tank to go with the the engine, its not the right one, but its more right then whats fitted, the jet is a little big but should be ok.

If anyone needs a BEC Villiersparts have a AB1 but its not cheap, more then i wanted to pay for a 20 engine...

She's a goer!

After a bit of work by Ross and I today and a tactically positioned O-Ring she is off!

After a throttle lever to fit that carb. There is a little lever that fits on top of the carb I have seen on some JAP 80's

It's not as hideous as I thought it was going to be, I was expecting strimmer style BLAAAHHHHH but she not that bad for a 75cc 2 stroke.

Quite pleased with todays work.
