13D Strip Down

13D Strip Down

Post  seipgam on Sun Jun 10, 2018 8:00 pm

As mentioned in a previous post I have done a Big End in my 13D, so I want to strip it down to the crank case before I hand it onto whoever I get to repair it for me.

Apart from a couple of Midgets this is the only Villiers I have worked on so be gentle with me.
I have had the magneto side off so that will be no problem.
I've read through the owners booklet and although a little more complex of course, all seems straight forward for the primary/clutch side as well, but just wondering if there is anything likely to catch me out - left had threads?, special tools required?
Nothing mentioned in the booklet, just trying to cover my tracks.

Thanks in advance,  Geoff.

Strip down

Geoff, it is just about the easiest machine to strip down the engine, if you have had the flywheel side off, you have already tackled the hardest part, you will heed about 3 spanners, a hammer and a screwdriver and perhaps a wedge of wood to lock the primary chain while undoing the clutch centre nut .

13D Strip Down & Clutch Questions

Post  seipgam on Mon Jun 11, 2018 9:06 pm

Stripped down the engine today with few dramas, had to make a makeshift puller to release the engine sprocket (primary drive gear?) because it had been fitted with some kind of loctite, as was every thread.

I was almost out of clutch adjustment so am considering replacing the corks. I searched this on the forum and read "Villiers 8E clutch cork saga". Is it really this involved with getting even contact, is there a known supplier that sells corks that are all the same (correct) thickness?
What thickness should a new cork be for a 13D?

Thanks again, Geoff.
