Hi, Just got this engine from a local sale, I didn't recognise it from the strange outer cowling and not until I took this off  did I find the Villiers Mk 25 nameplate The fuel tank has been set up vertically with a cap on the top and then there is what appears to be a chain drive kick start mechanism with the clutch still attached on the end,  bolted to the wooden bearer.
Does anyone have any idea what this was used for or what the engine could have originally fitted


?

 Thanks,glad someone's identified it, Is the kickstart from a Hayter as well?
   Looking at the instruction book I have found which had been posted on here last year the fuel tank is of the normal horizontal type so I assume it has been butchered for some reason to be made vertical.
 I have now removed the chain because it didn't turn but seems the fault is with the engine itself  which is stuck so further investigation needed.

Both the tank and the kickstart were standard on some of the 26" Hayters.
