Villiers 9E engine pre-fixes

Post  allen astell on Fri Jul 10, 2015 3:53 pm

I am about to strip a seized 9E with the pre-fix 617B No.29758. I understood it came with a FB (poss Cruiser) aquired by my son as a possible spare. In trying to locate an exploded drawing to help me I looked in Arthur Gent's book and nowhere is there any reference to this pre-fix. Should I assume it came off something else and does it matter?

engine numbers

Post  piston 197 on Fri Jul 10, 2015 3:57 pm

617B is a pre-fix code for a 9E 197cc engine supplied to AC cars, so probably was originally in a microcar , or invalid carriage, the 9E was never fitted into a FB, but the engine number is on the clutch inner cover , so once this is swapped, the number changes, so unless you can be certain this part is the original one it could have come out of anything that used the 9E, but the clutch cover was definitely supplied to AC cars
