Villiers 7/1 engine, Ransomes Mercury

Dear all

I'm looking at the Villiers 7/1 User Handbook to identify which parts are missing from my Ransomes Mercury. The mower has serial number 1300, so fairly early in the production run.

I sourced a recoil starter (2 pawl type) but need the parts on the flywheel that it engages with. P5 of the book shows a pulley (D11830), gauze assembly (DM2220) and bolt (25504). But also shown (on P6) is a starter cup and gauze. Could anyone confirm please if this is a separate alterative fitting, or if I need this too?  

If anyone has the required items for sale, or perhaps a full 7/1 engine or mower, that would be ideal and I'll add a wanted advert on the site.

Many thanks

Dave

Thanks for the tip, Paul can

Thanks for the tip, Paul can supply pulley and bolt and hopefully it will be possible to improvise the screen/distance piece.
