hi all
I am struggling to identify this engine from an allen scythe i have recently found in a scrap yard. i can find no id plate but i have found a couple of numbers cast on the cooling fan and on the block see photo . I  could also need pointing in the right direction for a sparkplug  as i have never come across one like this ,it would seem to be in two parts with the plug screwing into a holder in the head.
any help would be much appreciated. i hope the pics are ok  im not quite sure if i have got the process right

Looks like a Villiers Mk20 or Mk25. That is a standard 18mm plug, a lot of old plugs were like that, allowing the insulator to be cleaned better.

That is an old 2 part plug and the other part left in the head is part of the plug not an adapter. If you look on the    Green Spark Plug Co website you should be able to find a replacement or equivalent plug.
I assume you have removed the engine cowling or is it missing? If it is missing you will need to find one as the engine will overheat without it.
