Outboard With Villiers engine

Found this in the local scrap yard. The Villiers motor was built in Ballarat Victoria. It turns over freely & I will dismantle it & clean up & hopefully will go again. Does any one know anything about this outboard?

Re: chinese manufacturing

Speaking of Chinese outboards, my daughter purchased a Parsun Chinese outboard, they are water cooled & worked ok for a bout 12months regular work in & out to a Yacht, then sold it The main problem was it did not like running for very long over 3/4 throttle it would just stop & was then hard to star...

Re: CDI ignitions

An SCR / Thyristor is a Silicon Controled Rectifier or a switching device, which is used in the circuit of a CDI ignition system.

Re: CDI ignitions

Generaly in my experience of Johnson/Evinrude the SCR in the CDI unit is what fails.

Re: IGN Module

Interesting that none of the pictures in this thread are viewable any more. The pictures of the module & modified circuit, are on photo bucket debe5.

The problem appears to the large HV spike across the transistor. The solution appears to be fit a 1.5KE200A (1N6303A) Transorb . This seems to fix th...

Re: 1960-61 Forty Plus No spark alternatives?

If they are only 2 pin then they should work.

Use this circuit to measure the voltage from the coil primary, you should get about 5-6Vdc when spining the flywheel. Its fairly rare for the primary windings to fail. The Mazda tribute coil. Has it got 2 or 3 pins on the conector? if its got 3 then its not suitable.

Re: IGN Module

ATOM IGN MODULE improved.2.JPG Had a bit of a break through with finding a suitable switching transistor for this unit. I discovered 2SD1071 transistors were used in a Kawasaki motorbike ign system. It has a rating of 450V & works well in the circuit with Wipac & Villiers coils. The 2SD1071 transis...

Re: what to do with old fuel

I thaught in the old days before WD40, you used a rag soaked in the old fuel & wiped down the Seagull to leave a protective oily film.
