[QUOTE=Scotty 2;1494555]Hello Cobba.
Another thing I've noticed is the engine numbers for the Lightweight. They have different prefixes ie number before the X. I wonder if this signified where they went?
What's the engine number of your engine Ozzie? Have you by any chance looked at the date on the flywheel?
The Rover is earlier then the Southern Cross if the date on the flywheel is anything to go by.

Cheers Scott

Hi Scott

Villiers with an X in the engine number where made in Australia, no X made in the UK.

Hello all
We might be onto something with the Villiers numbers.
Ozzie's is 2423X1672 for a Singer
Ours are 2427X for the Rover and the Southern Cross is 2429X9152.
Maybe the number before the X are for the mower maker?
I haven't found the number after the X for the Rover yet. It's not where the Singer and Southern Cross have theirs

Cheers Scott

Yep could be on to something here - Scott, last number for Singer is 8 not 2, hard to see.

No doubt that late Ron Wiley would know exactly what belongs to what. His knowledge was right up there. I wonder if all his hard work and research has been saved?

Good news, Poor Ozzie now has a carby & manifold, found it right at my door step, unreal - he had 4 carbs in version condition & 1 with the manifold & workings. Thanks to all involved it’s been quite interesting. I’ll will update on my progress with Singer down the tract. A set of handle bars & wheels will nearly complete it.

Cheers.

Hello all
John: what a legend. Thanks.

Woohoo. Ozzie has a carbi.
There's isn't a spare piston where you found the carbs is there?

Cheers Scott
