The engine is a four stroke so runs on 4 stroke petrol, this can be confirmed as it has a sump!

Not sure the Anzani engine is a four stroke, thought the JAP is - can someone with an Anzani engined version (mine is buried in a container) please confirm?

Peter, it would seem there might be a choice of engines, 2 stroke or 4 stroke. A photo would enable us to confirm what you have.

Just found the instruction sheet for one of mine which states "Motor Hoe, 4 Stroke Model", which would imply that there is also a two stroke version.

They did indeed , with that peculiar alloy exhaust.

So that's at least three different engines then - Villiers 25C, JAP 2, and Anzani's own!

I don't ever recall having seen one with Anzanis own engine, anyone got any picture, I'm always interested in these kind of things.

British Anzani should have made their own engines, they made a 2 stroke twin motorbike engine, outboard marine and aircraft engines! British Anzani link
