    Good morning I have just completed re building a newly acquired Allen scythe with a Villiers C11 engine. I have fitted a new coil and condenser, I have spark. The carburettor has been cleaned and I have petrol.What I don’t have is combustion! I’ve set the points, fitted a new plug,set the timing,( several times ) all to no avail.
    Where am I going wrong? Any suggestions?

    Many thanks, Donald.


    hi donald its dave from newbury just a couple of simple things try, cut out switch or button disconnect -stick plug on blow-torch warm it up see if it will fire =try float bowl sometimes they stick up after being cleaned. more jiggery would be to take off cover and spin it up with drill sometimes starting handle or rope not enough swing if motor rebuilt.not far away from smoke by the looks of it cheers dave.
