1939 Plover any info?

Post  Mollbhan on Sat May 06, 2017 9:13 pm

Hi everybody new boy here.
Recently bought a 1939 FB Plover X11C engine, great condition and runs fine but carb drips a bit, not an uncommon problem, can anyone tell me the make and model of the carb.
Any info on this bike would be appreciated, what if any reading material like shop manuals or instruction books are available?
The exhausts and silencers are in very good condition, but noisy!!! are they all like this.
Finally an attempt to check timing failed , with the flywheel in the spark position the flywheel spoke completely obscures the points, it could be done by using a battery and bulb but is this the norm.
Lots of questions and probably lots to come but any info would be much appreciated.
Thanks.

Hi Colin

We have a club Librarian and his details should be on the slip of paper that I sent when you joined or in the front of the club Magazine. He should have something on your bike.
I am sure someone will tell you shortly how to time it.

Unless someone has changed it the carb should be of Villiers manufacture, if it is dripping, it either needs some new gaskets/washers, or the needle jet is leaking and either a new fuel needle and /or seat is required.
Carburettor service kit should be available from Villiers services ?

Hi, the paragraph below is taken from the Hints & Spares for the Plover 40 and 41. You can only time it this way if the flywheel is the original to the engine. Mike
