TC 102 Ignition

I'm going to fit a modern villiers type coil ( far East copy ) and condenser to the engine. Does anyone have any idea what output the original coils should be? I managed to get the engine to run quite well, but heavy loading it seems to lack power. Had to use smaller prop to keep up the revs to assi...

Re: Saga of the TC 102

Still finding problems with the TC. The float was too high as it had somehow slipped up the needle above the groove. Explains the fuel spray coming out of the cowling. The ignition system is suspect. ( Villiers ) can anyone suggest a modern coil replacement? Also a condenser? I'm told the Wipac is a...

Saga of the TC 102

managed to get the TC 102 running, but when in gear, cannot get enough revs to keep it cool. The (external ) water exhaust stops below a certain rev range, and the engine overheats. The impeller is good and the water system clean. In neutral ,it runs well. Tried changing to a smaller prop which help...

My TC 102

continuing saga of my tc102 ( posts..tc102 cooling problem) After a delay of a couple of weeks, I finally got to test the engine out in the river. I have now found that when the engine is in neutral the cooling water flow is good and just warm . But when in gear the flow reduces and the engine start...

Correct piston position

Hello again. A thread that I came across ( African Imp), cautioned him to make sure the" piston was the correct way up " on reassembly. Looking at his pics, it made me realise that , although I was careful to reassemble my 102 in the same position; I had not considered the implications had it been w...

Re: TC 102 water cooling problem

Fortyplus : FP215R.5 identified as exact date unknown. It has I think, the weedless prop. Looks like a clover leaf. Going back to the TC102 cooling; I managed to change both the cylinder base gasket and the pump flange gasket on the boat yesterday. In doing so, I found 1 of the block stud nuts to be...
