Hello all, I have been lucky to have been gifted a very good condition Atco Lightweight 14" from the son of the original owner. Model stamp1453 so I believe it us a 1953 version. It has I think the Villiers mk1 midget engine and there seems to be little information on these engines on this site or elsewhere. Some information would be welcome;
Can the fly wheel cover be removed without dismantling the kick start mechanism and if so how ? Is the fastening that holds the kick start sprocket the same as that which removes the fly wheel? I want to check the ignition and I see that it is missing the cover for the points. I think these are available from Villiers Spares as Condenser Covers is this the correct part? The engine has a Champion 7 plug fitted but I do not know if this works yet, what would be the equivalent contemporary plug?
